The popularity of Dubai as a holiday destination is quickly growing, and it’s no wonder. The ultra-modern city is home to an array of spectacular skyscrapers, including the world’s tallest building.
The city is home to a great many attractions for your family holiday, from wandering through the gold and spice souqs, to a trip to the beautifully restored Al Fahidi fort. You can even get a sense of what Dubai used to be like at the Heritage and Diving Village. One of the biggest benefits to UK visitors is the weather you’ll experience in Dubai. With our less than cheery forecast for most of the year, when we go away we usually crave some sun. Sunshine is basically guaranteed in Dubai, definitely boosting its popularity among British tourists for a winter getaway.
Just 45 minutes away from the airport you’ll find an array of luxury desert resorts. You’ll find in this area a number of exciting activities that can give you and your children a glimpse into desert life, including camel rides and desert drive excursions. Additionally, most hotels will offer a kids club, which will give you a chance for some much needed chill out time as well.
To top off your experience, you’ll love some time on Dubai’s beautiful gulf coast. Dubai’s beaches are buzzing, all-action hotspots during peak season. Join in with the beach games, picnicking, jet-skiing, jogging and swimming in the warm gulf waters, or relax in the sun and top up your tan. For water park fans, you definitely won’t want to miss the Wild Wadi Waterpark.
With 30 rides and attractions for the family to enjoy, Wild Wadi is themed around the tale of Juha, a known character from the Arabian folklore. The park has the best selection of rides within the UAE and is one of the most popular family attractions that can be found in Dubai.
