Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) which is famous for its architecture, luxury shopping, adventure, and relaxation. Dubai is the largest and the most populous city in UAE.

To entertain the little ones, here are the six best places to visit in Dubai:

  1. Dubai Aquarium

Dubai Aquarium and the Underwater Zoo are located in the Dubai Mall. It is the world’s largest suspended aquarium and one of the best places to visit in Dubai with kids. It is a home to 140 species of sea life where you can get a chance to be close to the rays, crocs, and sharks. Here you can take a behind-the-scenes tour and learn about taking care of the underwater world with an Aquarist. To get into more adventure, you can take a glass-bottom boat tour with the sharks and also get a chance to feed them.

  1. Arabian Adventures

Young explorers can get a cultural experience in desert safari in Dubai. They can see the beautiful sunsets, ride through the majestic dunes (in 4*4 gripping drive), camel rides, an enchanting feast with a crackling fire under the starry sky. Fire show, Tanura show, henna painting (temporary tattoo), sand-ski, quad bike, barbeque dinner, photography in traditional costumes and falcon bird on the shoulder are some of the activities for children to enjoy at the campsite.

Kidzania is a replica city in Dubai Mall as an edutainment center. The entry is done through Kidzania International Airport (operated in partnership with Emirates Airlines) with complete security check-in desks and X-Ray machines. It has a functioning economy and paved streets where children can explore over 80 real-life professions.

Children between the ages of four and sixteen can choose to perform jobs to earn KidZos (currency used in Kidzania). With the KidZos earned they can do shopping and learn interactive things there. It is a place with unlimited entertainment, learning and interactive activities such as role plays of a dentist, pilot, fireman, factory worker, surgeon, lawyer, judge, actor, chef etc. This Global Theme Park has safe and secure weather conditions for children and their parents with realistic education environment.
