Eid is one of the most awaited holidays in the Islamic calendar and a great chance to get away for a short break. After many years in the region, we’re sharing our top recommendations on places you could visit during your Eid break:
- Beirut, Lebanon
Beirut is the capital city of Lebanon, boasting real history and heritage as well as beautiful scenery and national parks. Located just 1,300 miles away and a mere 2 and a half hours flight, Beirut is the ideal destination for all tourists seeking some time off. History buffs will love The National Museum with more than 100,000 artifacts and antiquities. Meanwhile night owls will appreciate the live music scene, renowned restaurants and dining experiences and energetic nightlife.
- Kandy, Sri Lanka
Located in the hills of Sri Lanka, Kandy is a surrounded by natural beauty, it also has its fair share of history and heritage with several key monuments including the historical Temple of the Tooth Relic, as well as parks and gardens, and pageants such as Esala Perahera. With Sri Lanka only a 4 and a half hour flight from Dubai, it stands out as a destination for anyone with the desire to explore culture and nature in one – or anyone looking to spend some time gem shopping!
- Kerala, Southern India
Located in the south of India, Kerala is not referred to as God’s own country for no reason. The famous backwaters have some of the best sceneries in the world, friendly people and outstanding food. With its rich culture and tradition, Kerala has been rated one of the most beautiful places on earth, and it’s not just the waterways, the Malabar Coast has beautiful beaches, picturesque rice paddies, and Munnar’s hillside tea plantations are not something you can easily forget. With a paltry flight time of 4 hours, there’s really no reason not to go!
- Muscat, Oman
The closest option we are recommending here is Muscat, the capital of Oman. As an entertainment hub with rich culture and diversity and a number of beautiful tourist attractions, it is only a mere 236 miles from Dubai with a flight time of 0.45 hours for those that don’t fancy the drive. Whilst there The Grand Mosque and Mutra Souq are worth a visit, and you can’t leave without taking a wander down Mutra Corniche.
