Dubai’s well-loved festival park Global Village closed its gates last weekend, which means two things: Summer is almost here, and more go-to attractions are about to shut their doors.
The good news is that residents can still enjoy some popular winter spots that will stay open for a few more days, even weeks.
Here’s a guide to three must-visit attractions that are closing soon:
The emirate’s Miracle Garden — which blooms with over 150 million flowers — earlier announced that it is extending its operations for an additional month this season. It will continue welcoming visitors until June 4, 2023.
Those who love the city’s mountain enclave and those who are yet to explore its grandeur have only 10 days to visit Hatta Resorts. The attraction is closing for the season on Monday, May 15.
Besides enjoying the great outdoors, Hatta Resorts’ visitors can go stargazing right from their private terrace.
The venue offers a range of unique lodging options, including its classic American sedr trailers, modern glamping domes, mountainside park filled with caravans, and its cosy, purpose-built Damani lodges — all of which provide picturesque views of the surrounding national park and the splendour of Hatta’s landscapes.
This open market is a popular weekly community event. Essentially, it is a farmers’ market that offers a wide range of locally sourced, fresh, and organic produce and artisanal food, handicraft, and other locally made products.
The Ripe Market at Academy Park will remain open until May 14, 2023.
Whether you’re a foodie or a family with youngsters to entertain, this weekend market has something for everyone under the lush green palms of the park.
Visitors can browse through a wide range of stalls offering everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to baked goods, homemade jams, and organic skincare products.
