A few of our favourite things to do in Dubai this week in our picks for your weekly calendar.
Ramadan Kareem, Mamas! There is plenty going on this week to keep you and the littlies entertained, from Ramadan camps, to unique iftars, to the chance to shop and browse, to the launch of a surprisingly cheap play scheme, to a big release at the cinema! Diaries at the ready – and we hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
Don’t miss out on the last Marina Souq before summer, Mamas! Taking place in its usual spot in the Fishing Harbour in Um Suqeim, you can browse and shop from a tempting selection of fashion, accessories, home décor, and delicacies. Don’t miss the stunning range of dhurrie bags and kiddie storage bags by the brand Pushpanjali, which are top of our wish list for summer, both for storing away our toys stylishly and as gifts for fam back home!
