What's up in September

  • Sept events

    Ahhh! The first sight of autumn. Falling leaves, dropping temperatures and autumn colours are the unmistakable autumn features. Though the UAE is not exactly blessed with this season, there are many parts of the world where autumn is distinct. For many, this season between summer and winter is laden with melancholy. But what interests us most is that, it is also the shoulder season for travel. So let’s take a look at what’s happening around the world during this season.
