Dubai is an amazing place. It is constantly growing and changing and some of the new technologies and attractions are just mind-blowing. To help you get the most of your family holiday, we’ve put together 12 categories of the best things to do in Dubai with kids – and they are suitable for kids of all ages.

It’s a win for everyone, really.
1. Go high
When you visit Dubai with kids, you have to go high and get the view from above. Whether this is the top floor of your hotel or the observation deck on the 124 and 125th floors of the Burj Khalifa (555 metros up!), will depend on your love of heights and your budget.
Our favourite, however, is the Dubai Frame, at 150 metres high. As an added bonus: your kids will get a mini history lesson! You enter through one side of the frame, where you can learn about the Dubai of the past as the structural changes that were implemented to develop the Emirate when oil was found in 1966.
The Frame is situated so that you can see old Dubai from one side at the top and modern Dubai from the other. The difference is quite startling.
The other startling thing – not for the faint of heart – is the window flooring, that lets you look all the way to the bottom. I hated it; Miss M loved it – and it is that kids recommendation that means it is a must-see if you are in Dubai with kids!
You descend on the other side of the frame and are told about Dubai of the future – Printed 3d building blocks anyone?
Tickets cost AED 50 for adults and AED 20 for kids (3 to 12 years). Children under 3 years enter for free.
You may also be lucky enough to have great views from your hotel. When booking, check out where the pool or bar are in your hotel. In many hotels, these are located on the higher floors: great views are almost guaranteed!
If you want to go REALLY high when visiting Dubai with kids (and the highest observation deck in the world is not high enough), try a tandem sky dive. Children must be older than 12 for this activity.
2. Take to the water
It can get quite hot in Dubai. If you’re in Dubai with your kids when it does, the best way to cool down is to go swimming.
Why not take advantage of the wonderful hotel you booked and swim in the hotel pool?
The hotel we stayed at on our last trip to Dubai – the Jumeirah Creekside – had two pool areas: a large one on the ground floor near the restaurant and one of the eighth floor.
The ground floor included 25 metre lap lanes, a dedicated children’s pool, a pool bar, jacuzzi and lounges. It was an easy place to spend an afternoon.
However, it was the eighth floor pool was the real star. It boasts wonderful views of the skyline and the sunset. For kids there is a see-through glass edge that allows you to look down onto the hotel lobby while swimming.
We found the best offer through booking.com.
If your hotel doesn’t have a great pool, go to the beach! There is no shortage of beaches in Dubai.
Spend a day at the beach in Dubai with kids, swim in the azure waters, build sandcastles in the gorgeous white sand and go for a walk and admire the views. They are gorgeous!
Note: UAE is a Muslim country. Some beaches are only open to women and children on some days.
If you have slightly older kids and are looking to teach your kids a slightly unusual hobby, why not try kite surfing? Kids classes are available for children 10 years and older and heavier than 50 kg. A 2-hour family lesson costs around AED 500 (about EUR 115).
3. Experience the desert
One of the unique aspects of Dubai is the proximity of the super modern city to the desert. When visit Dubai, try and get out of the city one day and see the desert.
Many companies now offer desert experiences. Prices range depending on what is included. However, it is guaranteed to be a fun day (or morning or evening) and a great way to see a different part of Dubai.
Peter and I took a tour that included hotel pick up, and hour long 4WD dunes tour, sunset stop and scenic stop, traditional dinner at a Bedouin tent with free (non-alcoholic) drinks, dinner show (belly dancing and a wonderful whirling dervish) and free activities such as camel riding and henna painting. Other activities were available for an additional fee, such as falcon holding, having photos taken in traditional dress and even quad biking.
There were kids on our tour and they had a fantastic time.
Unfortunately, when we looked at giving Miss M the same experience, the price was prohibitive.
Children under 3 and pregnant women are not permitted on the tours (safety restrictions during the dune tour). What we did not realize is that the price increases significantly if your child needs a child seat. We would have been treated to a private vehicle, with a child seat, but the total price was the equivalent of 4.5 adult fares. Even the concierge at our hotel was extremely surprised as this was not mentioned when he inquired about a car seat.
If the desert tour does not fit into your timetable or, like us, you are seeing Dubai with kids who need a car seat and who can’t go on the tour (for a reasonable price), we have an alternative.
The Dubai Bedouin Experience offers morning or evening tours, with hotel pick up, camel caravan through the desert, a falcon show, a tour of a traditional Bedouin village with an explanation of daily rituals and culture, live cooking demonstration and a traditional breakfast. This is followed by a traditional performance and return to the hotel.
The more expensive evening meal includes a more hearty meal and an informative astronomy session.
A child seat is provided for children under 5 years old, but unfortunately, small children and pregnant women are not allowed to go on the camel ride (they will be taken to the village by car).
The tour is held in the Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve, the largest unfenced nature reserve in the UAE. It makes up 10% of Dubai’s total area. It is home to over 350 bird species and many animals, as well as the 3,000-year-old Saruq Al Hadid archaeological site.
4. Soak up the old world vibe
When you’re surrounded by skyscrapers, it is easy to forget that Dubai was once a small fishing village.
So, when visiting Dubai with kids, make sure you take some time and wander through the Al Fahidi historical neighborhood.
With wind towers and winding alleyways to produce shade, cool courtyards and some gorgeous architectural details, it is like stepping into yesteryear.
We can recommend the Dubai Museum and Al Fahidi Fort. The fort was built in 1787 where the border of urban Dubai originally ended. It served as an armoury and prison and is now a museum with an extensive underground exhibit. It looks at various environments within the Emirate, with reconstructed markets, Boudoin tent and shipbuilding wing.
Don’t forget to take a walk through the souks.
- The gold souk is amazing. Some of the jewellery is so ornate you really don’t know where to look first.
- The heady scents of the perfume and spice souks will work their way into your nostrils and you will always think back on your trip to Dubai when you smell those scents again.
- The bright beautiful colours of the textile souk will make you smile.
Of course, to get to all the souks, you have to cross the creek. The best way to do that is by abra! Service is informal – the boat will leave when it is full – and a cup will be passed around to collect your fee (AED 1 per person). Just check that the boat is going to the souks before you board.
5. Visit a museum
The Dubai Museum is only one of the museums and new ones are popping up all the time. One of the things to do in Dubai with kids is to visit one of the modern museums.
The Ethiad Museum looks at the history of this new nation. It only formed in 1971 and the museum is located where the signing of the Constitution of the United Arab Emirates took place (and it contains the document, too). The museum uses interactive displays to share the heritage of the UAE in the areas of social, political, cultural, scientific and military history. It is worth visiting simply to marvel at the architecture!
Another architectural marvel is the Museum of the Future, which is due to open soon. It will have exhibitions and themed attractions and will employ immersive theatre to share its message, too. This one is on my list of things to visit next time we are in Dubai – and the building is another must-see!
6. Shop till you drop
With the largest mall in the world and so many souks, Dubai is the place to shop. Well, at least window shop.
Even if you are not into high street fashion or designer labels, there is much to see and buy. The souks are brimming with traditional goods such as spices, perfume and textiles such as scarves, as well as fun souvenirs. Of course, the toy stores and electronic stores might be more to the taste of some children.
Don’t forget that Dubai also has the largest candy store on the planet – Candylicious in the Dubai Mall. I’m sure most kids could find something to their liking there!
(And the adult chocoholics can find something to their liking Belgian chocolatier Pierre Marcolini, which also has a store in the Dubai Mall.)
And while you’re checking out the shops at the malls, let your kids check out some of the many things there are to see and do for free there.
7. Admire a crazy garden
Dubai has made a lot of crazy ideas a reality. If you don’t think the construction of a whole island is crazy (and fascinating and amazing), then you obviously haven’t really thought about what they are doing in Dubai.
One of the craziest, but also the simplest, is the decision to build a big garden in the middle of the desert. Not just any garden either: the world’s largest flower garden.
So, if you are looking for things to do in Dubai with kids, why not admire a crazy garden?
The Miracle Garden boasts a heart-shaped path, underground bungalows, parades and street performers, and even a world record-breaking floral rendition of an EmiratesAirbus A380 aeroplane, entirely covered with flowers and plants. Don’t miss the Butterfly Garden either, with 15,000 butterflies.
Tip: Plan ahead – the park is normally closed during the Summer months to renovate and install new exhibits (and because it is too hot!)
If you or your child have allergies and real flowers are not your thing, try the Dubai Garden Glow.
It is a light installation, with a fantasy “garden” of animals, flowers and wonderful geometry. In recent years, they have also added an indoor ice park with ice sculptures (and thick coats to use while in the area) and a magic park full of optical illusions. They also have another part, which we’ll get to shortly.
8. Take a boat ride
When most people think of Dubai, they think of skyscrapers in the desert. While this is true, it is also on the Persian Gulf (yes, the same one that the Gulf War is named after). Dubai was also primarily a pearl fishing economy until oil was discovered.
Being on the water, its a great place for a swim and a boat ride!
A boat ride should definitely be on your list of things to do in Dubai with kids. The question is, what type of boat?
If you are going to go shopping at the traditional souks, you will probably need to make your way from one side of the Dubai Creek to the other. The easiest way to do this is by Abra, one of the traditional Emirati boats.
Travel by Abra is one of the insider tips for Dubai on the cheap – it costs less than $1 per person. Normally the boat will leave as soon as it is full, so just check that it is going where you want to go and hop on and take a seat. A cup will be passed around to collect the money.
You can also hire an Abra to take you to somewhere else on the Creek, much like you would a taxi. We took an hour trip up the Creek and back. Negotiate the price with your boat captain as it will depend on demand and where you want to go.
The public transport system also runs a number of ferries. Some of them, such as the ferry from the old town to the Marina, offer quite good views. It is definitely an easy way to see something and recharge your batteries while visiting Dubai with kids. For more information check out the RTA. It is also worth paying the extra money for a gold ticket.
If you are looking for a longer trip on something more traditional, try a Dhow cruise. Dhows are traditional sailing vessels used in the Red Sea and Indian Ocean Region to carry goods. Numerous companies operate in the Dubai Creek and the Marina and offer cruises and dinner cruises. Prices vary.
For something special when you are visiting Dubai with kids: take a five-hour dhow cruise from around the Musandam Peninsula in Oman, with pick up from your hotel in Dubai, such as this tour. It is on our bucket list.
7. Admire the architecture
Any trip to Dubai with kids must take in some of the architectural marvels, such as:
- Cayan Tower – the one with the twist
- Burj Khalifa – the tallest one
- Burj al Arab – the one shaped like a sail
- Palm Atlantis – the hotel on the top of the man-made island
- The Opus – square on the outside, squishy on the inside
- The Museum of the Future – I can’t wait for this to open
- The Ethiad Museum – the one resembling a manuscript (the constitution)
- The Frame – literally a huge frame
- The Jumeirah Beach hotel – the one that looks like a huge wave
- Al Rostamani Group Maze Tower – can you find the way into and out of the maze?
- Sky views – which looks like a boat on the top of a very long stick.
8. Hit the superlatives
Go big or go home.Unknown
If Dubai had a motto I think that would have to be it. I don’t think any other country in the world has as many records for the “largest” something or other, and Dubai is just one Emirate within the country.
I know many children, especially boys who spend hours pouring over the facts and figures in the Guiness Book of Records. If this is your child, the superlatives definitely need to be on the list of things to do in Dubai with kids.
If the few that we have mentioned already are not enough, check out some of these other superlatives (Dubai currently holds over 400 world records):
- The first ATM to issue gold
- The most expensive ice cream – It has Italian truffle, Iranian safran and 24-carat gold leaf, all served in a Versace cup. It costs 3000 DHS (approx. EUR 700 or 815 USD). I don’t think it is a flavour I want to try and make.
- The tallest hotel in the world: the 75-storey Gevora Hotel measures 356.33 m (1,169 ft) from ground level to the top, with 528 hotel rooms that go up to the 71st floor.
- The only 7-star hotel in the world (Burj al Arab) with 24-hour butler service, chauffeurs driving Rolls Royces and iPads made of 24-carat gold…
- The largest fountain in the world (at the Dubai Mall)
- The largest OLED screen, also at the Dubai Mall
- The largest water projection light show: the IMAGINE fountain at Festival City
- If it is the season: the largest Christmas bauble, also at the Dubai Mall
- The largest artificial island: The Palm
- The biggest picture frame – the Dubai Frame, of course
- The largest Indoor Ski Resort – now open at the Meydan One Mall. It boasts a ski slope that is one kilometre long!
- The largest permanent vertical maze: the Al Rostamani Group Maze Tower in the Dubai Financial District. Balcony lines are used to create a maze on the sides of the building. The maze has a total surface area of 3,947 square metres
- The tallest twisted tower – the Cayan Tower at Dubai Marina (307.3 metres with a 90-degree twist.
- The world’s first 3D printed commercial building: the Dubai Future Foundation. Perhaps the way of the future?
- Unsurprisingly, Dubai is the city with the most buildings 300 m high or taller
9. Up your Instagram game
Miss M has not discovered Instagram yet. Even though she is a child, she does know about taking photos for the blog (she even wants to have her own blog.
I’ll let you in on a little secret: it is one of the reasons why we’re in the process of starting a new blog: mrsmaiasaura.com)
Still, I know many older kids have discovered Instagram (and a range of other social media platforms) and are constantly working on their feed. Here are some suggestions of where to go and what to photograph:
- Burj Khalifa, either from within the tower at the observation deck or from outside with the towering structure in the shot. Unless you’re lucky enough to have a hotel close by, the best outside shots are from the bridge connecting the Dubai Mall and the Souk Al Bahar (go early to avoid crowds) or at the Palace Downtown.
- The Dubai Fountain
- The old town. Visit the Gold Souk, for some bling and the Spice Souk for some colour. Please note: some store holders at the spice souk will not be too happy if you are taking photos but have no intention of buying. Take a ride on an abra across the Dubai Creek and get lost in the maze of streets – you never know what you will see then!
- The Dubai Miracle Garden with its quirky floral backdrops
- The Burj Al Arab: assuming that you are not staying there, the best places to photograph it are either from the public beaches to the right of the hotel or the Jumeirah Al Naseem.
- La Mer: Dubai’s newest beach spot. You’ll find cool graffiti, beach huts and picture-perfect food that is bound to be a hit with your budding social media star
- The Dubai Marina: all those skyscrapers and yachts. The views are particularly good at night.
- The Palm Jumeirah. From most views, this artificial island does not look like much – it is from the air that you get the best view. Skydiving is probably out of the question, but soon new Palm Tower will open, with its viewing deck from the 52nd floor. I from the brief footage that is available, the views of the Palm are stunning. It is scheduled to open before the end of the year.
- Atlantis, The Palm. Take the monorail right to the top of the Island and take photos of the hotel and the various aquatic life you will find. Alternatively, head to the Dubai Mall and take as many photos as you wish in front of the second-largest fish tank in the world at the Dubai Aquarium.
- The Dubai Frame – from outside and of course from inside. The contrasting views from both sides and the view through the transparent floor (I am looking away from my laptop as I type this) are both very instagrammable.
- Medinat Jumeriah – this complex has it all (well, nearly). Traditional wind towers, palm trees and clear waters with an Arabian souq feel. You can even visit a souk (and the turtles – see below) and go for an Abra ride too. And the hotels in the Madinat are worth checking out too.
- The desert: it can yield some absolutely gorgeous photos, especially at sunset.
Yes, I know there are a lot of repeats in our list of things to do in Dubai with kids of all ages. The Dubai Frame, for example, offers great views, is fascinating architecturally, is interesting as a mini-museum and is one of the most instagrammable spots in Dubai. Pick whichever angle bet suits your child and sell it!
10. Meet some animals
When you are in Dubai with kids, you have to see the animals, or at least some of them. The question is, which ones?
One easy place to start is the animals and fish at the aquariums – either the Dubai Aquarium or Atlantis the Palm.
If you are looking for an added thrill, try the Ultimate Snorkel (children aged 6 years and up) and Dive Discovery (children aged 10 years and up) at Atlantis and dive or snorkel in the largest aquarium in the region with around 65,000 marine animals. Shark lovers (aged 8 years and up) can go on a shark safari wearing a state-of-the-art dive helmet and experience the sharks and rays up close.
If your child prefers dolphins to sharks, try the Dolphin Experience at state-of-the-art dive helmet) are only for children 8 years and older, children of any age and swimming ability can play with the dolphins in the shallow part of the lagoon. The experiences are not cheap, but they do include free access to the waterpark for the day.
Guest staying at Atlantis, The Palm, get discounts. Book your stay here:
In contrast, you can see the turtles for FREE! The Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project nurses injured sea turtles back to health at the Jumeirah Al Naseem. You can visit them and see them in the lagoon, for free, no bookings required. On Wednesdays, be at Turtle Island at 11 am for the free turtle feedings.
If your child prefers anything pink to aquatic creatures, you can see flamingos for free, at least in winter. Thousands of stunning flamingos gather at the wetlands at Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary. These salt flats, intertidal mudflats, mangroves and lagoons are home to many birds, but the flamingos – in number and colour – are most impressive.
Entry to the viewing areas is free, getting to the sanctuary is not. The metro does not go to the sanctuary. The easiest way to get there is by taxi. However, if you have done your research you will know that taxis in Dubai are much cheaper than they are elsewhere.
More animals can be seen at the impressive safari park – well it could be if it was open. The park opened in 2017 to replace the overcrowded and depressing zoo, but after five months it closed for maintenance and has not yet reopened. It looks very impressive though, with a safari boat tour through crocodile-infested waters. Until it reopens, there are zoos in the nearby Emirates in Al Ain, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi (with up close and personal giraffe feeding).
Don’t forget about the butterflies at the Dubai Miracle Garden either!
11. Marvel at the dinos
If you’ve taken the “go big or go home” motto to heart and are looking for something involving larger animals to do in Dubai with kids, how about some dinosaurs? Is that big enough?
We have three different ‘dinos’ on offer.
The First is the free Dubai Dino, located in the Souk Dome at the Dubai Mall. This 24 metre long fossil of a Diplodocus longus was discovered in Wyoming in 2008 and is more than 150 million years old. It was originally bound for Houston, but was assembled in the Mall by a team of palaeontologists after the skeleton was won for Dubai.
Remember when I said that I would get to the other part of Dubai Garden Glow shortly? Well, the final part of the park is the dinosaurs!
Originally, this was quite an extensive range of dinosaurs including stationary and mechatronic dinosaurs and an erupting volcano. There were various dinosaurs to touch and pose with located throughout the park and an impressive Jurassic Park-like entry into the dinosaur area. Sadly, in between trips, the dinosaur area was reduced to about half it’s original size and some of the dinosaurs looked a little tired.
However, Dubai Garden Glow remains one of the amazing things to do in Dubai with kids. All the fan favourite dinosaurs are there – T-Rex, Triceratops and Brontosaurus, for example – and the interactive dinosaurs in the rest of the park mean it will still be a hit with little dinosaur lovers. The rest of the park is also worth checking out, even if you bypass the dinosaurs.
We have not yet been to the third dinosaur highlight in Dubai with kids as Miss M would not yet enjoy it.
IMG Worlds of Adventure is just one of the themed amusement parks in Dubai. It is unique in that it is all indoors!
It has five themed areas, including Avengers and Cartoon Network as well as The Lost Valley Dinosaur Adventures. This area has three themed restaurants, two shops and five themed rides, most of which I would love to go on!
While we know Miss M would love the dinosaurs, she would be heartbroken that she was not tall enough to go on most of the rides. So we are saving this one up for a future trip to Dubai. Still, if you have a #littledinosauraficionado who is tall enough (at least 1.05m, preferably larger), add IMG Worlds of Adventure to your list of things to do in Dubai with kids.
12. Make a splash at a water park
A water park must be on your list of things to do in Dubai with kids.
There are numerous water parks in Dubai – Wild Waldi, Aquaventure, Laguna Water Park and Legoland Water Park (with Yas Waterpark in Abu Dhabi too). While each of them has their own speciality and some are better for small children and others better for teenagers, NONE of them are cheap, but it is definitely worth visiting at least one!
We chose Wild Waldi for 2 reasons:
- It seemed to have more slides etc that Miss M could go on (some depend on size)
- It was free with our hotel!
Yes, our hotel was part of the Jumeirah chain. Guests of all Jumierah hotels get free entry to Wild Waldi – as often as you like. With the deal we found, ended up saving more than what we paid for one night’s accommodation. That is a win in my book! Our hotel also had a free mini bus to the park.
Atlantis also has free entry and daily passes to Aquaventure and to the Lost Chambers Aquarium for any guests of their hotel.
Definitely look into what is on offer when choosing your hotel!
13. Get some thrills at an amusement park
What child does not like amusement parks?
Fortunately, there is a range to choose from when visiting Dubai with kids, so you can choose what suits your child’s interests (and even what the weather is doing).
Dubai Parks and Resorts is a huge park complex with four theme parks, as well as a French-themed common area with restaurants, boat rides and entertainment. While the walk from the bus stop and taxi drop off can be quite long, you are sure to find a park to suit your tastes.
- Motiongate: Miss M adored it! One of her favourite movies/series at the moment is “How to Train Your Dragon”. Motiongate – which is a Sony-branded theme park – has a large Dreamworks section with Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and, of course, How to Train your Dragon. You can guess where we spent a lot of our time! This area is also entirely indoors, so that the weather does not matter. Other rides that we enjoyed included the Green Hornet, Hotel Transylvania and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Luckily Miss M was just tall enough to go on all the rides from all the films that she had seen – there are more that she is not yet big enough to see or ride (like the Hunger Games).
- Legoland: We haven’t been in Dubai, but we have been in Germany, Twice now. Legoland is aimed at the 4-11 y.o. age group, with everything covered in Lego. With rides based on favourite Lego series, some incredible Lego constructions (we loved the family day out, complete with dog and cooler box) and chances for kids to build their own Lego masterpieces. Miss M had a ball.
- Legoland Water Park: Think Legoland, with water. Build-your-own boat anyone?
- Bollywood Parks: We haven’t been to this one and have not watched a huge number of Bollywood films. However, the Bollywood Parks is split into five zones inspired by Bollywood blockbusters, with live entertainment, stage performances and cinematic rides.
Don’t forget about the IMG Worlds of Adventure! It’s entirely indoors and has five themed areas including Avengers, Cartoon Network and The Lost Valley (dinosaurs!).
Buy your tickets online and save! Also check to confirm that the parks are open when you want to go – Legoland and Legoland Water Park are currently closed (COVID-19 restrictions) and Legoland Water Park closes for a period in Winter each year for maintenance.
What to pack to make the most of your trip to Dubai with kids
There are a few things that will help you make the most of your time in Dubai with kids.
- We use our iPhones for a lot of our shots, even while travelling. However, if I know we will be going somewhere where the photos will matter (as a family, not as a blog), I will take my DSLR camera. I have an older version of this Canon.
- If I am going to be taking my camera, I also take the right lenses. You will not get the best photos from the Burj Khalifa with a standard lens… Here I used my wide-angle lens and a zoom lens (which is also great for natural portrait shots).
- And if I am really planning to take some great photos, I will take my tripod too. I have two: this rainbow one, which works well with my phone and I use when I am afraid I might leave it somewhere (the colours make it harder to forget), and a standard one I purchased years ago similar to this travel tripod.
- We are encouraging Miss M to take her own photos and have given her her own camera. It is only a basic camera (also has games and photo effects), but we will improve on it as she grows.
- Of course, if your child is older, they will probably want a phone to take photos or videos for their Instagram, TikTok, etc. We use iphones, but I have been impressed with the photo quality of the Samsung S10. They may already have a phone, but might find a zoom lens kit useful for some of the pictures they are planning to take on your instagrammable Dubai route.
- To stop your electronics running out of battery before you get to take all the shots you need or check the opening times for the museum or park you want to visit, take a powerbank. Make sure you pack it in your carry on and that it complies with the maximum voltage restrictions.
- If you plan on spending time outside – which we definitely recommend when you are in Dubai with kids – don’t forget to pack some protection from the sun: a hat, sunscreen (spray is really useful) and sunglasses (cute ones with UV protection) are the bare minimum.
- Are you going to the beach or a waterpark? You can probably borrow the hotel towels, but it’s better to take your own. I love the bright colours of these striped beach towels. These towels are designed to be quick-drying – perfect for travel.
- Grab some compact binoculars for the best views from up high and for bird watching in the desert.
Don't forget these things when visiting Dubai with kids
