Today it is known for its vast shopping centres, immense waterparks and palatial high-rise hotels – a playground for the rich and famous but equally a fantastic destination for your next family holiday.

Great tips. I am surprised to see Grosvenor on the list for travelers with kids - to me, it was more like a fantastic business accommodation I actually did not recommend families, but it seems I am wrong (I did not visit with kids, so you probably know better :)
