Family Fun in Dubai

Family Fun in Dubai

Dubai is not a city which will probably pop into your mind as the first choice for a family holiday destination. Known for its glitz, glamour, money, and high class hotels, Dubai has long been known as the glittering jewel in the UAE crown. Despite that, there are countless activities and attractions for families to enjoy, with more than enough to keep the kids occupied during your visit to this sun-drenched and money mad city.

Family travel in Dubai is a fantastic experience because it allows children to see first hand a different culture to the one they may be used to, and this breeds well-rounded, open-minded children! Of course, the fact there is much to see and do doesn’t hurt either!

Here are five suggestions of things to check out as a family in Dubai.

Ski Dubai

Located in the huge Mall of the Emirates, you will find an indoor ski slope. Yes, the temperatures might be soaring outside, but inside they are very chilly indeed! Learn to ski or snowboard with set lessons, although do book ahead for those, or you could simply build a snowman or have a snowball fight!

Children’s City

Education certainly doesn’t have to be boring, and at Dubai Creek Park you will find this huge centre dedicated to interactive attractions, which teach kids about science, the human body, and a huge range of other topics, without them even realising they are learning. The flight simulator is a big pull too.

Wild Wadi & Wonderland

These are two waterparks, although the latter is an amusement park at the same time. Wild Wadi is found at Jumeirah Beach Hotel and is a fun day out for all the family, with water slides, surfing lessons, and rides to enjoy. Wonderland is a similar set up, although it has more on-land attractions too. You will find Wonderland at Al Gharhoud.

Desert Fun

Head out into the desert on an organised trip and enjoy dune bashing, sand boarding, and camel rides! Desert safaris are a great way to experience the open vastness of the desert, and most trips will usually include a visit to the nearby camel farm, which the kids will certainly love!

Hot Air Balloon Ride

Checking out the huge vastness of Dubai from the sky is a must do, and kids will love the sheer novelty of the experience too! Many different tour vendors offer this particular activity, so shop around for the best deal.

As you can see, Dubai is certainly not just for adults!
