With top deals on shopping, dining, entertainment and hotel rooms, Abu Dhabi Summer Season delivers memorable moments for fun seekers for all ages


If you’re spending time in the UAE capital this summer, be sure to arrive with energy to burn as Abu Dhabi Summer Season (ADSS), taking place from 21 June until 18 August, will keep you on your toes with a city-wide line-up of exciting experiences. Organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), this year’s ADSS brings a selection of top hotel deals, dining offers and shopping promotions to the fore, with lots of family-friendly events and entertainment thrown in alongside. 

Thrill-seekers should head to Yas Island where the new Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, opening on 25 July, is offering free entry for one family member upon purchasing a four-person Family & Friends ticket, so you can enjoy all of the park’s hair-raising rides and attractions for less.  

Foodies will eat up the fantastic deals at over 200 participating eateries by Zomato. Look out for the themed culinary weeks, when 25 restaurants will be offering a variety of tempting discounts. Plus, if your birthday falls between 21 June and 18 August, you can eat for free at up to 50 participating restaurants. 

Those looking to bag the latest fashions will be pleased to learn that there will be discounts of up to 80 percent at participating shopping malls. In addition, there’ll be on-the-spot prize giveaways and the chance to win clothing, accessories, gift vouchers, and even cars in the popular Unbox the Amazing campaign. If you’re bringing your kids along for the ride, rest assured they won’t be bored thanks to the variety of acts on offer, including concerts and performances by leading entertainment and event companies in the region, as well as special guest appearances by characters from all their favourite shows,  including Pink Fong and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who are descending on Dalma Mall and will bring some super fan fun.
