Dubai is one of the greatest cities to visit in the world. Although many people associate it with adults, there is a wide range of family-friendly activities. It is a great destination for families with plenty to see and do. Below are 6 of the best things to do in Dubai with the family.


Kidzania is an interactive education centre in Dubai which is a great thing to do for families in Dubai. It is a place where children and their parents can explore and experience education in environments where they can mimic real-world adult activities such as going shopping and going to work. With over 80 professions to perform in a real-life city made for the children, it will be great fun for all the family.

Ski Dubai

Families don’t need to go on a skiing when they visit Dubai. This is because the Mall of the Emirates has its own ski resort which is an impressive 22,500 square meters. Families can enjoy a day at the mall and go skiing together. It is suitable for the whole family where everyone can strap on boots and experience real snow, ski lifts, toboggan hills and ski slopes. There is also a ski school where families can take part in private ski or skateboard lessons. Ski Dubai is definitely going to provide the whole family with lots of fun and memories to last a lifetime.

Aquaventure Waterpark

The Aquaventure Waterpark is the waterpark at the Iconic Atlantis, the Palm resort. From relaxed pools to fast speed slides, there is something for everyone in your family. The waterpark is a perfect family day out as it has something to suit everyone. It is family friendly and provides families with a day packed full of fun.

Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo

The Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo is a great family activity to do and I believe it is a must do when in Dubai. The aquarium and underwater zoo are in the Dubai Mall which is the biggest in the world. It has an underwater tunnel that takes visitors under a huge tank that is full of sharks, fish and stingrays as well as a creepy crawly zone and 10 million later tank that can be seen from the indoor of the mall. This is one of the most impressive experiences in Dubai and is perfect for families with children of all ages.

Children’s City

Dubai’s Children’s City is the first ever education city in the United Arab Emirates. It was created for young children to explore, play, investigate and learn all about the world. The Children’s City can be a fun family activity as it has been created for children to enjoy with their families together. So if you’re looking for something educational to do when you visit Dubai, the Children’s City is definitely a good choice.

Desert Activities

Dubai is famous for its desert activities and they are ideal for families to enjoy together. No trip to Dubai is complete without taking part in some kind of desert activity. Whether you want a relaxing camel ride or fast dune buggies ride in the desert, there is a range of activities to suit all interests in the family.

Going to Dubai can be expensive, so make sure you compare hotels and flights costs before you go. Website such as Travelstart can help, check for available flights to Dubai today and save.
