The Burj Khalifa, which is recognised as being the tallest tower structure in the world, is one of the most breathtaking sights to take in during a visit to Dubai. The building also symbolises the growth and ambition of Dubai as a city and a holiday destination. This ambition has led to Dubai to develop a style and international glamour that is unique within the United Arab Emirates, where it is also a hub from which travellers may visit and experience other areas within the Arabic world. It also means that there are many facilities that are suitable for family holidays to Dubai, catering for all age ranges and all tastes within a family that everyone can enjoy.
Dubai does not lack locations for making the most of the plentiful sunshine. The beaches can attract large numbers of sun-worshippers and seaside holidaymakers. There are also numerous luxury hotels that have their own resort style facilities, including swimming pools and sun decks, among many other amenities and activities. One of the modern water parks might spark the interest of the younger members of the family for an afternoon activity.
Two of the most popular water parks in Dubai are Wild Wadi and Aquaventure. The Wild Wadi water park provides a themed set of water rides and adventures. The park includes water rides that are suitable for experienced and thrill-seeking pleasure park enthusiasts for the young crowd or the more timid park-goers. The water park is open for business all-year round, meaning that seaside fun can be found in Dubai whenever the family holiday is scheduled. The Aquaventure water park, which is located in the grounds of the Atlantis Hotel, contains a wide range of water park thrills for both the more adventurous and less adventurous water park visitors. One of the signature offerings at Aquaventure is called the Leap of Faith, which includes a lagoon of sharks, separated from swimmers by transparent tunnel walls.
After a day sunbathing on one of the many beaches, splashing in one of the abundant luxury swimming pools, or braving the rides at one of the spectacular water parks, visitors to Dubai can find a similar breadth of offerings when it comes to evening entertainment and night-life. There is a large selection of restaurants, bars, and clubs in which older members of the family can relax. There are also numerous spa centres to offer a different sort of relaxation if holiday visitors want to spend a part of their day being pampered.
A family holiday in Dubai is one that provides a distinctive location in which to discover some of the most thrilling aspects of a seaside holiday. This means that it is important for family members to be prepared for sunshine, water, and sand when packing up suitable beach clothing and accessories. The gift shops in Dubai also stock a wide variety of goods for travellers who have forgotten to pack an item from home.
