The weekend is upon us, and we’re already fantasizing about sleeping in till the birds stop singing.
And when you’re (finally) out of bed, there’s more to look forward to. Here are 5 activities waiting for your arrival:
Museum of illusions
If you’re a fan of dizzying spirals and mind-blowing tricks, the Museum of Illusions is your go-to spot for a day out with friends. Pop into upside-down rooms for a psychedelic photo op (do it for the ‘grams!) or turn your 8-year old into a hulk with mind-bending layouts. It’s a magical place to spend your day alone or with family.
Ticket Pices: Adult: AED 80 | Child (5-15 years): AED 60 | Child (below 5 years): FREE | Family: AED 225 (2 adults + 2 children)
Timing: Sun – Wed: 10 am – 10 pm | Thu – Sat 10 am – 12 midnight
A Staycation Under AED 500
Yes, you read that right. There are plenty of staycation spots in the city. Unfortunately, they do tend to be a bit heavy on the pocket.
However, the H Hotel Dubai has a deal that’s hard to believe: starting at just AED 299, you can get your hands on a 2-person stay with a complimentary breakfast and early-check-in/late-check-out perks. If that wasn’t enough for you to start packing immediately, the hotel also offers a 25% discount on all hotel-owned F&B outlets and is free for kids under 12 years of age.
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting my suitcase ready.

Splash in the Poolside Coco Lounge
With the weather turning a new leaf, you’ll no longer be steaming under the sizzling sun when you take a dip. At Coco Lounge, the poolside scene is glamorous and the lively October vibe only makes it better. Starting from AED50, you can get a pool pass with access to food and bar services. Reservations are needed, so make sure you have that ready!
Try Dubai’s Famous Brunch
Brunch in Dubai is slightly different than just a late breakfast. In the UAE, brunch generally starts after noon and lasts 3 to 4 hours with a buffet-style serving set and grape or bubbles to accompany.
