Discover Emirati culture: If you feel like learning something new and different, don’t miss the Khannaga Craft Workshop at the Souk Central Market. Khannaga is a traditional braiding technique that’s exclusive to the Gulf, and here’s the ideal opportunity to add a new string to your bow.
From 10-11.30pm. This event is organised by the French Alliance in partnership with Sougha (02 666 6232)

Make a splash: Swimming is a great way to get fit so why not head to the Beach Rotana where private and group lessons are available for kids and adults. Sit and relax in the comfortable, poolside chairs while you watch your little ones have their lesson.

Feel fishy: An evening of seafood awaits at Park Rotana’s Ginger, where every night is a different theme night. From Italian to Indian, they’ve got all cuisines covered and Thursdays are when fresh fish is on offer. It’s Dhs160 per person, which is fair for five-star hotel dining. And if the weather’s nice, you can take your supper outside.

Try a different type of exercise: Walking on a treadmill can become very boring very quickly so why not try a kickboxing class. This is a great full body workout that will have you fit and toned in no time.
