Dubai Holidays are world-famous for shopping as there are more than 250 shopping malls, including the largest mall in the world, Dubai Mall. Here, alongside over one thousand shops, you’ll find some unexpected attractions such as Dubai Aquarium with the largest viewing panel in the world and an underwater zoo. The mall is home to Ski Dubai, the world’s largest indoor ski slope – not something you might expect in a desert.
The Dubai Fountains by Dubai Mall are a spectacular sight, not to be missed. Watch how the water dances to music and illuminates and shoots up to 500 metres into the air. The fountain show is a fun family attraction, occurring every hour for a few minutes.
Another family favourite is Dolphin Bay, a stunning dolphin park with adjacent waterpark. Get up close to Flipper and friends for an unforgettable interactive experience and swim with the dolphins. Book ahead to avoid queues. Then there’s Aquaventure, a top water park with zip lines, waterslides and flumes that pass through shark filled lagoons (separated by glass).
