From waterparks to the world’s tallest building, desert adventures and theme parks, there’s so much to do with your kids in Dubai – and here are a few of our favourites.
When the weather in Dubai is hot hot hot, there’s no better way to stay cool than taking the kids to one of the city’s huge waterparks.

Without a doubt, one of Dubai’s most famous and iconic buildings is the Burj Khalifa. Standing at over 828 m, and with 163 floors, the tower has broken records around the world (not just in Dubai) for height and size. Exploring this sky-high building will take you to heights you’ve never been to before. From the top, it’s said that you can see up to 95 kilometers of unique Arabian landscape. It takes a full 3 extra minutes for the sun to set if you’re at the top, compared to street level.
