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.

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 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
