There's going to be some BIG celebrations this December for UAE National Day...

Every year, UAE National Day falls on Sunday 2nd December - and for 2018, the country and its residents will be celebrating 47 years since the United Arab Emirates was united.

Besides two days public holiday for workers in the emirate, Dubai will be putting on a grand display of parties, festivities and fireworks displays in honour of the occasion.
