Who says numbers aren’t important?
This year, UAE’s National Day celebrations are in full swing (and sync) with the spirit of hailing 48 years of the country’s formation in 1971 with the union of the emirates. Entertainment destinations, hotels and other service providers have aligned their offerings to hail the landmark.
