Here are some fun and interesting ways to make the most of your weekend in the UAE

Zoom in to Jebel Jais

Ras Al Khaimah invites more day trippers, staycationers and holidaymakers with the opening of its new Viewing Deck Park, close to the summit of Jebel Jais, the UAE’s highest mountain.

RAK, now popularly known as the adventure emirate, also has the world’s longest zip line which we tried a couple of weeks ago. Read all about that here and make the trip happen!

Go hiking in the UAE

Say yes to hiking in the UAE! February maybe the coldest month of winter here, but it is also one of the last couple of months to enjoy a good outdoor day. Use our guide to plan a group hike day in the country.

Try a new place to hangout/eat

This week’s recommendation is a brand new hangout spot in Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa called the Garden. Comparable to a teensy urban oasis with trees and plants varying from a 100 year old olive tree, chilli, guava, mandarin and lemon, to fragrant herbs and foliage, The Garden is a unique venue.

With cute seating areas, live music, an experimental bar and string lights lighting your garden path, you might just love it. Don’t forget to grab a shawl or jacket as it can get cold, even though they have strategically placed heaters all around.

Location Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa, JBR Dates Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6 pm to 11pm

We are always trying out new places so we can recommend those for our readers. This week’s list is quite amazing, so check it out.
