The Nigerian Minister for Aviation Hadi Sirika in a recent tweet on August 17th 2020 announced the resumption of international flights from the 29th of August 2020. Although flight resumption and protocols are yet to be communicated, He stated that the Lagos and Abuja Airports will be the first to re-open for international travels.
In light of these improvements, we know that many Nigerians are looking forward to taking short vacation trips to make up for the holiday opportunities lost due to Covid-19. Here’s why Dubai should be your next destination!
Dubai has taken strict measures to fight against the spread of COVID-19 and assures tourists of their safety in the country. Asides from having a potentially virus free holiday, some other amazing attractions and holiday activities we recommend are;
Dubai’s famous desert safari featuring the adventures in dunes and sand, riding camels, handling falcons, quad bike tours and enjoying traditional Bedouin hospitality at a delicious barbeque buffet dinner under a starlit night.
Explore and take in some amazing street art. There are several spots around the city where local artists have painted the town (and it’s not just red) from Karama and Satwa all the way to JBR
Dubai has some pretty great beaches you can enjoy for free without the need to pay to get a beach pass. Pack up the spare clothes, towel and mat and head to options such as The Beach at JBR (a perennial favourite), Kite Beach, Al Sufouh Beach which, though tricky to find will reward you with peaceful waters and beautiful views.
The Dubai Fountain is the world’s largest choreographed fountain system, performing mesmerizing watery routines to the likes of Whitney Houston, Enrique Iglesias and Celine Dion. In order to maintain social distancing while watching the show, yellow markers have been placed on the ground, demonstrating exactly where viewers should stand. Temporary fencing has also been erected to help guide the flow of traffic along the promenade. It will now come to life every night of the week.
It is important to note while preparing for your next vacation that those travelling into Abu Dhabi from outside the United Arab Emirate UAE still need to supply a negative Covid test certificate, obtained within 48 hours of intended entry.
