Thailand is a country of exceptional beauty and charm. Its heady mix of unique culture, picture-perfect beaches and historical intrigue is enough to make any holiday an amazing one.

If you head to the capital Bangkok, visit the impressive, world-famous temples. You can also sit back and take a trip on a long-tail boat through the colourful and bustling floating markets.

The beaches of the south islands are known for their azure waters and golden stretches of sand. Whereas the north is the perfect place to trek through mountains, enjoy breath-taking scenery and discover the array of wildlife that call the country home.

You might find yourself staying in a beach hut overlooking the sea or a treehouse above luscious greenery. Either way, this is one Eid you won’t forget in a hurry.



Jordan’s historical past is weaved throughout its towns and cities. This makes it the ideal place for history buffs this Eid.

Visit the World Heritage Site, Petra for a taste of Jordan’s rich and varied past. This city is a historical and archaeological wonder, found in the south of the country and situated between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea. Here you’ll find structures half-built, half-carved into the rosy sandstone. Used as a filming location for some Hollywood blockbusters, Petra is home to landmarks such as The Treasury and the High Palace of Sacrifice.



If you’re looking for luxury, then the Maldives is the ideal escape for your Eid celebrations. Consisting of 1190 tiny islands scattered across the Indian Ocean, this destination is pure paradise.

Spend your days sunbathing on the golden sandy beaches before diving into the turquoise sea to explore the colourful underwater world.

You can stay in a water bungalow, located over the crystal clear waters, on a private island – from here step straight down into the sea and look back at the palm-lined beach.

If you fancy making the most of the long weekend then book a flight with flydubai and celebrate Eid in style.
