A trip to Dubai? WHAT!!!? That was our reaction when our parents told us we were going on a family vacation to Dubai. We had an amazing experience, and we want to share some great places we visited in Dubai with you.
View of the Burj Khalifa at night
The Dubai Mall. An amazing mall like nothing we have ever seen before. The mall had more stores than we could count, an aquarium and underwater zoo, ice skating rink, food court with various types of international cuisine, and there was kid zania. KidZania is a location inside the mall where kids get to experience different professions. We enjoyed making and delivering soda to the grocery store, and creating our own pizza for delivery. Our overall experience was fun, but we thought we were a bit too old for KidZania. We will recommend KidZania for kids ages 5 – 7.
The view outside the mall at night is spectacular. The Burj Khalifa is very beautiful at night, and the dancing fountain is a must see. The water from the lake shimmers with lights, and the beauty of how the fountains flow together is amazing.
Do you love water like we do? If your answer is yes, then you have to spend the day at the Wild Wadi WaterPark. There is so much to do. We especially loved the lazy river for lounging, and the feeling of the water splashing down on us. They have yummy slushies at the waterpark – perfect for a hot afternoon. Liza also had a great experience at the fish spa. Jazmeen refused to get her feet in there :).
The beach we visited was relaxing and beautiful, with excellent food service. We loved the feel of the sand between our toes and the beautiful sunset over the horizon. The shells we found on the beach were very pretty. We also found baby crabs at the edge of the water, and put them back in the ocean. When you get the chance to visit the beach, be sure to stay after sunset, it will be a memory you will never forget.
Our trip to Dubai is an experience we will never forget. Dubai is a friendly city with lots to see and experience. The city has many beautiful tourist attractions. Don’t forget to visit the souks, and experience old Dubai as well. If you ever find yourself in Dubai, be sure to make the best out of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
