Dubai is the land of oil, Sheikhs and the rich. The pace at which the development is happening is astonishing, specially knowing that historically it is all reclaimed land. Even today when you visit the city ,in just under an hour you will see the desert. But you won’t think about it at all when you’re in the city which has it all. Be it shopping- Dubai Mall, Emirates Mall, Gold Souk, luxury- you see the world’s best cars here, breathtaking monument like Burj Khalifa, Skyscrapers and even beaches.
Last few days you have been reading all about my trip to Cape Town. If you have missed it then you can read all about it here; Day 1, Day 2 , Day 3, Day 4 and Day 5. Now this was a trip we did without our kids. We knew we would feel guilty and so we from here onwards, we booked our trip to Dubai where my parents and my kids would be joining us. This turned out to be a perfect decision, not only did my kids have a blast but my parents too enjoyed themselves. Dubai was a heaven for my kids with all it’s super cars and theme parks. Though I am a bit bored of theme parks and would have loved to experience history, yet seeing my kids happy was worth it. Today’s post is all about things you can see and experience with kids in Dubai and Abu Dhabi;
Dubai Aquarium: Price starts from a good 100 AED pp and you can pay extra for inclusions like boat ride with the sharks, diving with the sharks etc. However, having been to the London aquarium and Hongkong aquarium, this felt less impressive and smaller. Dubai Aquarium has more than 33,000 living animals, representing more than 85 species including over 400 sharks and rays combined.
Every hour experienced Educators conduct regular presentations with Otters, Water Rats, Piranhas and Penguins.
You can spend unlimited amount of time admiring the underwater zoo and fishes, sharks, penguins, king crocodile etc. We finished visiting the entire aquarium in about 1.5 hours. Read More

Wow, a Very nice blog all the places you have posted is very nice but my favourite is desert safari. Desert safari is very famous, especially they made for tourist
A few years back Dubai was just a city developing and trying to cope with the big economical countries of the world. It did not have the resources to pull off such an extravagant Desert Safari, but as time passed the city of Dubai told the people of the world that they better than others. When you see the progress the city has made you always get a feeling of AW! Thanks for such a nice sharing.
