This year, many people in the country had the longest vacation ever. After the long weekend of Eid Al Fitr, people are getting back to their routine. But surprisingly, there are more long weekends that will come this year. So what are the long weekends we should be looking forward to? It’s Eid Al Adha that is approaching, with a long weekend for us to plan a vacation.

When is Eid Al Adha 2022?

This is the other big festival Dubai celebrates. With a four day break from work, this is an excellent time for a trip out of the city, especially if you are not taking a summer vacation. After all, with the temperatures soaring, we need all the breaks we can get! So here are a few things you can do over the summer while you relax over the long weekends. The first of these long weekends will take place from Zul Hijah 8 to 11. The four-day vacation of Eid Al Adha will start from Saturday, July 8 to Tuesday, July 11. On Tuesday, July 12, work in private sector will start up again. The moon sighting will determine the final announcement of these dates.

What Are The Other Public Holidays To Look Forward To?

The second—and last—official long weekend will fall on November 30 for Commemoration Day and December 2 for UAE National Day. The official dates off for these periods are Thursday, December 1 through Sunday, December 4. The Prophet Muhammad’s birthday will fall on the 8th of October, which is Saturday. While we all wish it was a long weekend, we really don’t know! Eid Al Adha follows Eid Al-Fitr. This holiday was recently observed from Sunday, May 1 to Monday, May 2. And it also resulted in a longer holiday for private and public sector workers in Dubai known as the Greater Eid.

So what are you planning to do with the long weekend? Stay indoors, or have a quick getaway? We would love to hear it!
