Original Travel has teamed up with the much loved children’s party people Sharky & George to inject some (much needed) creativity and fun into the family holiday process.
The ultra-modern Dubai with its spectacular skyscrapers (including the world’s tallest building) offers a range of things to see and do, including wandering through the gold and spice souqs, a visit to the beautifully restored Al Fahidi fort and getting a sense of what Dubai used to be like at the Heritage and Diving Village, all which ensure the kid’s boredom is kept to an absolute minimum
Dubai is one of those places where weather forecasting is not the most challenging task. Sunshine is all but guaranteed, making it a great destination for some winter sun within reasonable flying distance of the UK.
Just 45 minutes from Dubai's state-of-the-art airport, there are oases in the form of luxury desert resorts. These offer a number of excellent activities, to give children a glimpse into desert life, such as camel rides, desert drive excursions and the Sinbad's Kids club means plenty of R&R potential for parents, too.
After a desert experience the ideal combination is a few days in a family friendly resort on Dubai's gulf coast. As well as this Dubai has Wild Wadi Water World, which may be your idea of hell, but children (and fans of alliteration) will love it.
