Dubai, one of the most interesting and most modern cities in the world, we visited for the third time. And we do not get bored here. Different attractions are being created all the time, the city is expanding and changing, so every year we visit completely new places. Together with our son, we have selected 10 of the most interesting attractions for children, which you must visit in Dubai.
Here you will find a description of attractions and practical information. Prices are in local currency – dirhams. The converter is easy, because 100 AED = 20 GBP
1. Burj Khalifa
The highest building in the world (828 m.) is an absolutely unique attraction that will impress children and parents. The views from the terraces are great. In the foreground you can see skyscrapers in the center and six-lane roads, as well as the azure water of Dubai Fountains. In good weather, you can see the characteristic sail of the Burj Al Arab hotel and the surrounding desert. The glazed terraces are perfect for taking a selfie. There are special screens, showing what you see outside the window during the day, at night, or historically – this third option is very interesting, because it shows how one of the most modern cities in the world looked like not long ago because in the 80’s. Here, where today stands the most modern glass skyscrapers and shopping centers, there was sand stretching to the horizon. You can read more about Burj Khalifa HERE.
You will reach the observation deck in Burj Khalifa from the Dubai Mall. Follow the signs —–> At the Top Burj Khalifa. By purchasing an entry to the observation deck, you have two options: access to the top to the Sky Lounge (floor 148), or to the two-level At the Top terrace (floors 125 and 124). If you choose the first option, you are waiting for entry in the VIP lounge with delicious Bedouin coffee and dates. Then, you go up with a steward who explains to you the most important information about the world’s tallest building. In the elevator the lights go out and on the walls show the contours of the famous skyscrapers, which we pass on the way to the highest viewing terrace in the world. The Sky Lounge has comfortable sofas set against the panoramic windows, and the waiters serve cookies and refreshing juices. After 30 minutes in the Sky Lounge, you go down to At the Top – a two-level terrace (internal and external). It’s not so luxurious anymore, it’s much more crowded here. There are souvenir shops, photo booths and hanging armchairs with a unique view. If you choose the second option, you go directly to the elevators to the At the Top level (124 and 125 floor) and you only stay in this zone.
