If luxury could ever be personified, the name would be Dubai- such is the grandeur and pomp of this nation. It is an internationally acclaimed destination of sheer decadence and a place truly loved by many across the globe. However much to the wonder of Dubai lovers from across boundaries, a large chunk of the very own native population has overlooked some of the best places in the country for a very long time.
As the end of another great year approaches, it is time for all those families who have soaked themselves in boredom, to break shackles and explore some truly amazing landmarks in and around Dubai.
Dubai Desert Safari
Very few can ignore the stark yet mesmerizing beauty of the Dubai Desert. From camel rides to belly dance shows, the debauched desert takes visitors through a journey of sheer excitement and joy. Ride a camel or opt for a jeep safari and enjoy a crazy ride through the sand for an evening of unlimited fun with family.
Want to get your adrenaline pumping and your heart throbbing in excitement? Wild Wadi is one of the best water parks in Dubai that offers a number of rides for all age groups. It is located very close to the spectacular Burj Al Arab and is one of the must-visit destinations for all families in the country.
Hot Air Ballooning
Bored of seeing Dubai through its busy streets and malls? Why not try the birds view this time? Use a car rental in Dubai to reach the desert oasis from where the hot air balloon ride takes visitors over the Gulf Sea to witness the beauty of the morning sky.
Al Ain is regarded as one of the top weekend getaways located very close to Dubai. Kids love the place for its famous Al Ain Zoo and the amusement park Hili Fun City while adults find themselves drawn to the mineral springs at the feet of Jebel Hafeet. This heritage village is well-suited for families looking for unruffled peace throughout the weekend.
