Uae Public Holidays

The country announced a public sector holiday for Prophet Mohammed’s birthday

You can never have too many long weekends, so it’s definitely good news that there’s one coming up very soon, at the end of this month in fact!

It’s time to get planning for a three-day long weekend at the end of September, which is The Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) birthday.

While the actual date will fall somewhere between 26-27 September, Al-Mawlid Al-Nabawi is listed on Friday, 29 September 2023. So for those who enjoy a typical two-day weekend, that’s one more to add for a glorious four-day work week.

Of course, you can always bookend the days and get five days off. During which, here are some amazing destinations you might want to jet off to for a quick getaway from the heat.

For those staying in the country, fret not! There’s plenty of things to explore, especially in the UAE capital. From cultural hotspots to art exhibitions and more, there’s no dearth of fun things to do in the emirate.

Alternatively, you could always plan out a fun road trip with your loved ones for a quick change of scene.
