Dubai, the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates, is a wonderful destination for families seeking an oasis of fun or couples looking for an adventure together.

Step right into a winter wonderland at Ski Dubai in the Mall of the Emirates, one of Dubai’s landmark attractions.

As the Middle East’s first indoor ski resort, the 22,500 sq ft arena features an 85m-high indoor mountain with five slopes of varying steepness and difficulty.

Parents can be challenged by the world’s first indoor 400m “black run” [for more expert skiers] while children can have a ball at the Snow Park with an icy body slide, climbing towers, giant snowballs and an ice cave.

For a splashing good time, head to Aquaventure Waterpark at Atlantis The Palm, that is packed with world-first
and record-breaking rides, including The Leap of Faith.

The ride is a 9m-tall mega slide that will hurtle you down its near-vertical drop in a mere second, followed by speeding through a clear, acrylic tube surrounded by numerous sharks and cownose rays.

After which, kick back and shop to your heart’s content at The Dubai Mall and traditional souks. The latter offers a dazzling array of jewellery and fragrant spices, herbs and perfumed oils.

Round off your evening with a stunning bird’s eye view of Dubai at Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building that is over 828m tall.

Dubai stopover

En route to Europe? Consider stopping over at Dubai, the fastest-growing transit hub in the world.

Make the most of your short stay by shopping at The Dubai Mall, one of the world’s largest malls and home to 1,200 shops.

If you have more than half a day to spare, you can even enjoy a traditional Emirati meal at The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU) in Al Fahidi.

Located in the Al Bastakiya trading village, the SMCCU organises meals with local flair, which allow you to chat with an Emirati host about UAE culture, customs and religion.
