Many people are now on the hunt for more unusual family holiday destinations; whilst a trip to Disneyland can be lots of fun for children, going to the same destination every year can become a little tiresome. For those at a loss as to where to go on their next family holiday, Dubai could be the perfect choice. Here, we take a look at some of the reasons why Dial a Flight customers adore this destination.
One of the most popular attractions for both parents and children alike is undoubtedly the enormous theme park, Aquaventure. There are dozens of waterslides, including the infamous ‘leap of faith’ slide, which is particularly hair raising. However, there are also plenty of other slides and pools, which suitable for younger children. In addition, there is a wealth of picnic areas, restaurants, souvenir shops and green spaces to explore and enjoy. If you’re visiting the park for the entire day, don’t forget to bring some waterproof sunscreen! Another water-based attraction beloved by all who visit Dubai is Dolphin Bay. This beautiful spot features deep blue lagoons filled with schools of dolphins, whom you can go for a swim with, if you’re feeling brave.
Many Dialaflight clients who visit Dubai for the first time find the heat of the sun to be a little overwhelming. If the temperature of the city gets to be too much, you can always cool off with a trip to Ski Dubai. This is one of the only ski slopes in the entire United Arab Emirates. There are ski instructors on hand, as well as smaller slopes, so even little ones can join in the skiing and snowboarding fun. Even if snow sports don’t interest you, the snow cave, bobsled track and snowball throwing area will keep you and your children amused for hours on end.
For parents who want to indulge in a little retail therapy during their trip, a visit to Dubai Mall is a must. However, children rarely enjoy traipsing around the shops all day, which is why Kidzania, located inside the mall, is so perfect; this colourful wonderland is an ideal spot for when you (and the kids) need a break from shopping. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can always take children out on a camel ride across the desert. Dialaflight customers have found this to be a great way to explore the natural scenery of Dubai, and escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a day or two.
