Celebrate Saudi National Day with this fab deal

Women have been legally able to drive in Saudi Arabia for three months now, and to celebrate one Dubai cafe has organised a very special deal this Saudi National Day weekend.

From Friday September 21 to Sunday September 23, B’dou will be serving select dishes for free, to all female Saudi women drivers.

The Arab cafe based in City Walk, is popular with locals and tourists, serving up delicious dishes including traditional Arab mezze, soups and salads.

Not a female Saudi driver? You can still enjoy a 20% discount over the Saudi National Day weekend at the City Walk cafe.

The driving ban had been in place since 1957 until this year.

Saudi’s ambassador to the US, Prince Khaled bin Salman,  heralded the milestone, calling it “a historic and big day” and “the right decision at the right time”, according to the BBC.

“I think our leadership understands our society is ready,” the ambassador told The Guardian when the ban was lifted, adding that women will not need a male guardian in the vehicle when they drive.

Race you there!
