So if you were going to spend 4 nights in Dubai with Kids what would you do? Would you sip cocktails from a rooftop lounge? Would you laze around on the beach all day with a butler bringing you drinks? Would you eat gourmet food in swanky restaurants and savour every breath?
You can of course do all of that in Dubai. Just take a look at Visit Dubai’s website to see how easy it is in fact to do all of that; however with the kids I think our time in Dubai would look a little different.
If we had 4 nights in Dubai with Kids I would love to:
Visit Kite Fest
Try and time a visit to coincide with the Annual Kite Festival, it looks seriously amazing and better than that it’s free, they even have Night Time Kite Flying too what could be better. My girls would just love watching all the kites fight for freedom in the sky and the colours for the photos would just be incredible.
Visit Dolphin Bay
Dolphin Bay at Atlantis, The Palm looks out of this world and best of all there is no age limit to join in, so all my three Mini Travellers could swim with the dolphins provided we were in the water with them too. We have seen dolphin experiences a few times whilst we’ve been away but they’ve never been able to do it so this is a big win for me.
Even better still the experience includes entry to the Aquaventure Water Park
Aquaventure Water Park looks seriously cool. Just look at those views. From heart stopping slides for the fearless to beach style shallow pools. There really does look like there is something for everyone, but I imagine with our Under 5’s we would spend most of time in Splashers Corner.
Picnic at the Polo
We would pack up a picnic (a gourmet one of course) and take the kids to watch the beautiful polo horses thundering past. Whilst I’m sure the kids will love the half time activity of divot stamping, I would also get to live out a Pretty Woman fantasy!
Feed the Turtles
You can visit the the Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project. There is a sanctuary based at Burj Al Arab and Madinat Jumeirah. Their facebook page suggests there are scheduled feeding sessions on Wednesdays at 11am that anyone is welcome to join in; feeding takes about 20 minutes and is FREE!
These are my ideas as to what I would do if I got to Visit Dubai for 4 nights with the kids.
