Default Holiday Destinations

I am working over Eid and taking a 4 day weekend in a few weeks time instead.

looking for good ideas for a great destination that's cheap yet interesting within a few hours flight from Dubai.

Tanzania!

(a 5-6 hour flight, but the Emirates will take you there on a direct flight)

Exotic, friendly people, possibility both for beachlife and safaris. I loved it! Paid 1900 DHS for my flight, but you can get it for less.
