Week-end in RUHBack to Forum
Anonymous22 Sep 2013
Well, I should rather write week-end outside of RUH! Spending two weeks there. So my natural choice for the week-end would be BEY. But given the situation, I’ve got some sort of veto from Ms. SD… DXB could be an option, but looking for something more fun or new. While scuba diving in JED could be more fun, it remains … dry. So do you guys have any good suggestion?
Thanks22 Sep 2013
@LP 🙂 Not sure Ms. SD would be reassured…
@Alexpo: Aqaba: great idea since I’ve been there for too long now. But practically difficult (either two flights or one flight and three hours drive).22 Sep 2013
MCT is actually an option, with convenient direct flights. And, yes, Oman in beautiful.
ADD? Never been to Ethiopia. Heard it is beautiful. Any experience there?22 Sep 2013
@Alexpo: Did you go there on business or for leisure, if I may ask. Would you go for a short week-end (flights would bring me in at 7am and out and at 7pm on the following day). Did you fly Ethiopian?
@PDT: last time I checked, it looked complicated to go there (long road trip). Did I miss something?22 Sep 2013
I went for leisure from FRA as I had some M&Ms left over but I returned with EK. Perfectly feasible for a weekend, even from EU if you are a bit mad like me LOL
Btw, I would return to Ethiopia tomorrow but maybe for a longer stay!!!22 Sep 2013
Addis is a great city, though I was there many years ago so don’t know what it’s like now, though Alexpo’s reco seems reassuring.
If you’re looking that far there is also Cyprus which is probably closer. Otherwise I would also recommend Muscat, though can’t remember if it’s dry or not.
Wherever you go, enjoy it.22 Sep 2013
