Friday is weekly holiday ? So Sunday is like our weekday?

I have a weird question, sorry to ask this.... but since Friday is the "weekly holiday" for people in Dubai, does this mean Sunday is like any other weekday ? Meaning we shouldn't expect Saturday and Sunday to be busier in shopping centers, or ski dubai ?

Just trying to figure out this difference in culture.

Thanks.

1. Re: Friday is weekly holiday ? So Sunday is like our weekday?

You're right, Sunday is a normal working day. Many people work 6 days a week and only have a Friday off so Saturday is half and half. Friday is the day most people are off work so Thursday evenings are like a Friday evening in other parts of the world.
