Thank you for taking 3 mins to read our First Blog of the year 2020 – by yours truly at PK Holidays! Most of us are still in denial that we survived 2019 – but we did and we expect great things from the year ahead.
Leaving the past in the past – we look forward to the future. With the wonderful festivities and elaborate fireworks that lit the Dubai skyline for at least 15 brilliant mins into the new year – which can only be described as the grandest entrance into the new decade – I think we should be ready for year-long fun activities and events in Dubai and the UAE.
2020 opened with the 25th anniversary of the Dubai Shopping Festival – a household name for some and nostalgic for others, who were here for the 1st Dubai Shopping Festival in 1995! Expect the Unexpected with mega sales, unbelievable promotions, bargain shopping and plenty of entertainment and surprises for the little ones and the big ones!
Be ready for the Dubai International Jazz Festival in February with a line-up of major international stars – one of whom is the legend himself, Lionel Richie! Next, we will have the Art Dubai Fair – a contemporary art fair which features art work from the world’s international galleries.
For the golf enthusiasts, we bring you the Omega Dubai Desert Classic – hosted on award-winning perfectly-manicured golf courses in Dubai. You can look forward to perfect golfing, walking the course with great professional golfers in absolutely perfect weather.
There is plenty to do in Dubai all year round – from the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon, the Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships, The Dubai International Boat Show, The Middle East ComiCon, The Dubai World Cup – the richest in the world!
And of course, the much-awaited EXPO 2020 Dubai. For 173 days, be a part of this creative and innovative journey and experience daily entertainment, 192 country pavilions and live daily shows! “The world in One Place”. Be a witness to the thematic districts and landscapes, all encompassed in world class architecture. It’s the dream event of the year and not to be missed!
And you can do all this while enjoying a comfortable stay in our wide array of holiday apartments, vacation homes around Dubai. Covering locations from Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai to the illustrious Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina – we will find a home for you to stay and enjoy the wonder of Dubai-The Year 2020.
