Christmas in Dubai 2017 – From Turkey Take Away to Festive Brunches

In Dining to Tell 
Christmas

Finally it’s that time of year. The festive season is upon us:  Thanksgiving kicked it off and now it won’t be long until Christmas and New Year. Here is a first sneak peek at all Dubai will have to offer this festive season!

The days are getting shorter, and a little bit colder. There’s no need for AC 24/7 and surely there’s need for a comfy sweater or blanket once in a while. Because it’s that time of year. That time of year when everything seems cosy and fun and most people, although in a flurry of end of year business sprints, are in better spirits with the holidays that are just around the corner.

And thankfully Dubai has a lot to offer during the festive season with lots of take away turkeys, Christmas markets, high teas, brunches and dinners and of course the New Year’s festivities with parties and brunches. And we love giving you a sneak peek at this year’s festive fun! We’ve also included a few options in Abu Dhabi and Ajman.

Where relevant, prices listed are for the most expensive package, which usually includes unlimited soft drinks, house beverages and bubbles, but please call or check websites for detailed information on packages!
