A few of our favourite things to do in & around Dubai this week
This week is all about mixing indoor and outdoor activities in the desert city! For those who want to brave the heat for some yummy braai, celebrate Braai Day at Emirates Golf Club, and if staying away from the heat is more your thing, then have some fun playing Monopoly – the SMILE edition or watch Star Wars at Steigenberger Hotel Business Bay with unlimited popcorns!
Bring the kiddies over to play the much-loved board game designed exclusively at Majid Al Futtaim’s malls. This year the game features new elements that are inspired by the SMILE campaign such as the ‘Smile Cam’ square that projects the players face onto a big screen and the ‘Make a Smile’ square asks participants to spread happiness and make others smile. Mr. Monopoly is back but with a few tricks and surprises up his sleeve!
When: Tuesday, 9 May – Monday, 22 May (weekdays from 12pm-10pm and on weekends from 12pm-11:30pm)
Where: Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira and City Centre Mirdif
