Places to visit in Dubai – Family Friendly Edition

For most people who visit or live in Dubai it can feel like a never-ending vacation, with endless sunshine, clear beaches and plenty of activities. For the most part this is true, especially if you have a family with children. Dubai is one of the safest cities in the world and almost all places are child-friendly. For those long family summer holidays, or just a weekend trip with the kids, here’s our round-up of the best places to visit in Dubai with the family:

Children’s City
The first kids-only zone in the UAE, Children’s City is packed with fun activities for children between the ages of 2 and 15 years. The central theme of Children’s City is that it blends learning with fun. Kids can learn about science, human body, space, theatre and much more
Ski Dubai
One of the most popular ways to beat the heat in Dubai is to head into an indoor ski park. Ski Dubai at Mall of the Emirates not only has skiing and snowboarding lessons, but children can enjoy playing in the snow and joining the penguin show.
Desert Safari
Dune bashing and sand boarding have an age restriction so the older kids are sure to have a great time in the desert. Younger children can go on camel rides, take part in henna painting and even accompany the rest of the family on the dunes.
Dubai Aquarium
A treat for the whole family, the Dubai Aquarium is home to plenty of sea creatures like sharks, sting rays and even the new member to family, the King Croc!
Kidzania
An utopia for children, Kidzania is modelled after a real city where kids can role-play activities that are done by adults in the real world. So whether your child wants to be a pilot, police officer or chef, they can do it at Kidzania and even use its own currency to pay for goods.
Magic Planet
Once of the oldest group of arcades in the country, there are Magic Planets in many malls spread across the city. Families can spend the day together bowling, playing arcade games, riding on bumper cars or riding roller coasters.
Global Village
