After the recent long weekend for the Islamic New Year, residents are eagerly waiting for the next holidays. The next public holiday will be on September 29 to celebrate the birth of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Since it falls before a regular weekend, the holiday will extend until Sunday, giving residents a long weekend.
The remaining two holidays of the year will be on December 2 and 3, celebrating the UAE’s National Day. Even though these days fall on the weekend, there will still be special events and discounts for residents to enjoy.
For those planning a long trip next year, Eid Al Fitr is expected to provide a 9-day break in the first half of 2024. Eid is predicted to be on April 10, 2024, but this may change depending on the moon sighting and official announcements.
