The four day weekend is coming up! While many in Kuwait are waiting restlessly for the festivities to begin, others are taking the chance to fly somewhere for a quick getaway. But, with only four vacation days to your weekend, where can you go?
We’ve put together a list of 10 getaways that are perfect for the four day weekend. Whether you are looking for beautiful beaches, green mountains or a history lesson we’ve got you covered!
Where else can you buy an “authentic” Ancient Egyptian sarcophagus – for a $100? OK, OK $50? FINE! Ten dollars? Why not try to catch the Karnak by sunset? It’s absolutely stunning.
If you fancy yourself a new [insert bodypart of choice], B-town is your place to be! Make sure to stop by Hamra for some of the coolest boutiques down winding roads.
Bet you didn’t know it had a Black, Red, and a Bent pyramid huh? Oh you did? Fine then! Go see them anyways! If you haven’t, Dahshour is a must visit if you don’t want to see the usual pyramids.
We have stunning Avatar-style greenery in the Middle East – minus all the giant blue people. But seriously, the scenery alone is a must-see!
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubbed as the Vegas of the Middle East! Attractions include: The Tom Cruise Tour of Burj Khalifa, go around the world in 80 seconds at Global Village, play a game of Hide’n’Seek at Dubai Mall, and follow the gold-plated-road (if you can find it). Dubai is full of fun options!
Take a camel, come on, you know you want to. TAKe the camel! Rejoice as you can splendour at the wonder that is the Treasury found in the glorious City of Petra.
Feel the need to escape the same boring faces, head to Sharm! You’ll see them anyways – but with a better view! #Fail Seriously though, take a boat out into the sea and admire all the reasons it’s called the Red Sea.
Jebel Shams, Oman
Glorious views and a magnificent game of avoid the sun! Challenge, accepted! Take a hike through the beautiful mountains and contemplate life under the stars.
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Did you find the gold-plated road? No? Well, tough. Do the old school thing then and TAKE A CAMEL! Well, Yas Island and the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque are reason alone to head on over, you won’t want to miss either.
Dead Sea, Jordan
Where you’ll be the only living thing afloat. Exfoliate in the natural mud and relax in the water, there’s nothing like taking a dip in the Dead Sea.
