While every city in the world has multiple facets and different sides to it, it’s more so the case with Dubai. With numerous nationalities co-existing peacefully in a melting pot of cultures, Dubai is a cosmopolitan city that’s still rooted in its heritage.
That’s why a trip to Dubai will give you, and your family, a completely unique experience, one that you wouldn’t find in too many other cities.
The ideal time to visit Dubai is from November to February, especially when you’re travelling with kids. With perfect weather, and the Dubai Shopping Festival taking place, the city turns into an exciting wonderland with fireworks, fairytale musicals, street performers and plenty of shopping options. Along with that, your little ones can also enjoy horse rides, camel rides, desert safaris and so much more.
But, in a nutshell, here are some of the things you can see and do in Dubai.
Desert Safaris One of the specialties of Dubai, a desert safari is something that you absolutely cannot miss. An adventure that stretches into miles and miles of sand, a desert safari is basically off-roading in sand.
Dhow Cruises Imagine cruising down Dubai Creek in an old-fashioned dhow that looks like its come straight from a history book, complete with a sumptuous five-course dinner and a tanura dance show.
Ski Dubai A truly exciting experience for the little ones, Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort with 5 slopes of varying steepness and difficulty, including a 400-metre-long run, the world’s first indoor black diamond run, and a quad lift and a tow lift that carry skiers and snowboarders up the mountain. Adjoining the slopes is a 3,000-square-metre snow park comprising of sled and toboggan runs, an icy body slide, climbing towers, giant snowballs and an ice cave. Ski Dubai also houses penguins that will provide your little ones with an unmissable opportunity to see them in their natural habitat.
Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo One of the largest suspended aquariums in the world, Dubai Aquarium houses thousands of aquatic animals, comprising of over 140 species. Over 300 sharks and rays live here, including the largest collection of Sand Tiger Sharks in the world.
Burj Khalifa a stunning feat of architecture and engineering, the Burj Khalifa boasts of two massive observation decks and a luxurious restaurant bar. The world’s tallest building pierces the sky at 828m and opened in January 2010, six years after excavations began.
Ferrari World Though not located in Dubai, Ferrari World deserves a mention as it’s the first and only Ferrari-branded theme park in the world. Located just a short drive away from Dubai, Ferrari World, Abu Dhabi, boasts of innumerable family rides, thrill rides, roller coasters, children’s rides, and shows like the Tyre Change show and Viva Ferrari.
The Amazing Shopping Experience Whether a power shopper or a bargain hunter, Dubai’s malls, markets and souks have something for everybody. Whether it’s the wonder of an Ibn Battuta themed mall for the little ones to the incredible shopping opportunities, every mall is an experience in itself.
“With world-class infrastructure and amazing sights for both, parents and children, Dubai is an excellent vacation destination, while being just a three-hour flight from India,” says Nidhi Batra, Little Nirvana Explorers’ co-founder. “So, in this way, you spend as little time as possible travelling and you get more time for the actual tourism and sightseeing.”
