From Egypt to the World: The Most Exciting Global Getaways for Eid

Whether you’re a staycation guy/gal or a long-haul traveller, these global Eid trips have a little something for everyone.

As bright sunlight streams through a nearby ajar window, your eyes slowly flutter open and you take a good long whiff, catching the smell of freshly-brewed coffee faintly wafting through the temperate air. At that moment, as soon as the java aroma registers, all you can think is: Morning coffee? I know what that means – Eid!

A time for celebration, family and adventure, Eid is the perfect time to grab a suitcase, stuff it with kahk, and hop on the nearest plane/train/automobile, letting it transport you to the vibrant streets of Hanoi, the serene beaches of Bali, or the bustling souks of Morocco.

So, whether you’re on the lookout for a short and sweet trip or a long and lofty vacation, we’ve curated a list of exciting global getaways you and your loved ones should definitely check out this Eid.
