3 AmazingTips For Spectacular Holiday with Your Kids in the UAE

September 15, 2019

Traveling with your kids can be overwhelming, especially if it is your first time. Even though it gets easier when you do it more often, you’re still going to run into a few challenges any time you travel with kids. This is especially true if you’ll visit a city like Dubai because there are a lot of things to do and places to see in Dubai.

Being prepared and knowing what you are getting into are two of the most important things to keep in mind to make family travel go smoothly. Aside from that, here are other helpful tips:

1. Don’t Overpack

Families have a tendency to pack everything kids use at home. This is because of the mindset that bringing these items will keep their routines consistent and they’ll be sure to have everything they need.

Unfortunately, this is not a good idea. At the end of a long travel day a long list of things to do in Dubai, there is a good chance you will end up carrying at least 1 kid, so you surely don’t want to be carrying heavy luggage, too. Therefore, it is always recommended to pack as little as possible.

2. Pre-Book Everything You Can

For sure, you have your flights booked for your trip, but your pre-booking should not end there. You might be used to showing up at a destination, getting a feel of the town, and choosing a place to stay. This doesn’t work when you travel with kids.

When you arrive in a new city like Dubai, you may want to go straight to your accommodation, drop off luggage, and give the kids the time to rest if necessary, before going to the best places to visit in Dubai. This is especially true if it’s been a long journey to get to your destination. So, it is important to know where you are staying before you arrive.

3. Research for the attractions you want to visit

Before you travel, make a list of all the activities you want to do and the places you want to visit in the city. One of the most recommended play areas for kids when in the UAE, especially if you are in Dubai is the Fun City inside Mercato Mall.

Fun City is an ideal play area for kids between 1-12 years old.  They have this “Fun n Learn” area where children age 0-4 can do activities which helps in their mental and physical development. Additionally, they also have an area called “PlayZone” which provides a safe and secure place to slide, run, climb, jump around and enjoy.

Hopefully, the tips mentioned above can help you have a smooth trip with your kid in the UAE, especially in Dubai.  One thing is certain, kids will adore a trip to Dubai. There are so many things for them to explore, play with, and learn about what they will never want to leave.
