Dubai is a city of record-breaking architecture, man-made islands and traditional quarters. You must see the country for yourself to believe it. If you are planning to visit Dubai, here are our 2 of our top picks of where you should go:
Wild Wadi Waterpark
A place where you can enjoy different water rides is in Wild Wadi Waterpark where you can enjoy around 30 water rides and play areas can be found. Thrill-seekers can slide down Tantru Alley while those who just want to relax can glide along the lazy river. There are also a couple of moderate slide options that kids can enjoy and the Wipeout and Riptide surfing ride which adults can try. Travellers of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers will definitely enjoy this waterpark.
Gold and Spice Souks
Dubai is and has been a top place of trade for many years now. If you want to learn how commerce was like before, a stroll through souks or bazaars is your solution. The Gold Souk is located in the Deira where you will find different displays of necklaces, bracelets and earrings from around 300 stores. The Gold bazaar is one of the most popular gold jewellery trading centres in the world. In fact, almost 20 per cent of the world’s gold comes through this place. Aside from gold, you can also buy diamonds, silver and platinum. And because the government tightly controls the selling of gold and other expensive metal, you are guaranteed that you will not be getting a counterfeit and you get through value for your money.
White sandy beaches, warm turquoise waters, plenty of sunshine, and a lot of different kinds of marine life, these are just some of the things you can do when you visit the Maldives. There are tons of different water sports, luxury accommodations, golf courses, and local cultural experiences to enjoy.
Hulhumale, a manmade island, was made as an extension of Male proper in 1997. Coral and sand were dug up from the lagoon to create the 1.8 square kilometre island. Guests now can enjoy an authentic Maldivian dining experience or spend a day snorkelling at this small paradise.
Artificial Beach Male
Another tourist favourite is Artificial Beach which is situated on the eastern side of the island of Male. You will find that there are only a limited number of tourists here than locals, and dress restrictions apply to the capital island and local islands. They will ask you to cover up swimwear in the restaurants during the day and at night.
If you want to enjoy a secluded vacation, then visit Fulhadhoo Beach, which is located on the island of Fulhadhoo. It is nearly uninhabited with only about 250 residents residing in a small village on the east side of the island. Guests will feel they find a little piece of paradise in Fulhadhoo. With abundant palm growths, turquoise coloured lagoons, and white sandy beaches, you will be left in total awe.
Travelling with your kids is always possible. Not because you already have kids does not mean that the adventure stops. Your travel adventure continues and this time, you are with your children whom you can share great memories with.
And while you may not be able to travel around the world, although it is still possible. You may not be able to drink a lot while with them, and you always have to worry about the budget, travelling with kids is always possible.
If you are not convinced yet, here are more reasons why you should travel with your kids:
Spending quality time
Travelling with your kids give you more reason to push the ordinary and give them extraordinary, and that is giving them your precious time. You do not actually have to go on an epic trip, you can just go on a weekend trip camping which will give you and them the quality moments you long for.
Creating memorable moments
Our children grow up so fast and we may not even notice that they are not the babies we once cared for. This is why travelling with them allows us to create memorable moments that they will carry for the rest of their lives.
The truth is, it is not actually the gifts or money our kids will remember us by, but the memories and time we give them that they will cherish most. The memories and experience with giving our children while we travel will help them navigate the rest of their lives with optimism, love and confidence.
