Known for its iconic shoreline and an insatiable appetite for entertainment, Dubai is home to a wealth of incredible activities for all age groups to enjoy. Below, explore a roundup of some of the city’s best attractions to visit, including the trove of trinkets at Global Village, a Japanese inflatable playground and an adrenaline fuelled water park.

Global Village

Global Village

Quite unlike anywhere else on Earth, this vast display of eclectic markets is of theme-park proportions, gathering each year from October to May to host a dazzling curation of artisans, shops and entertainment from across the globe. There is nothing you can’t find at Global Village, from fur coats to shisha pipes, to extraordinary artworks and precious crystals. Here, the world is your oyster, so it’s worth dedicating a full day or two to fully immerse yourself and be sure to factor in time to explore the abundance of street food stalls and tasty treats from around the world.

Hawa Hawa

Rediscover your inner child at Hawa Hawa, an exciting inflatable playground made especially for children, teenagers - and adults! The idea originates from Japan, where inflatable playgrounds have been built in various public parks to create a soft and safe environment for playtime. Dubai’s Hawa Hawa playground can be found close to La Mer beach, comprising two dune-shaped hills with a trampoline-like texture made from original Japanese material.

Wild Wadi Waterpark

Packed with exhilarating rides, including the 32-metre-high Jumeirah Sceirah slide, Tantrum Alley and surf simulators, alongside the not so frenetic lazy river, Juha’s Journey. With VIP cabanas, great food, and an almost endless series of attractions a family day out at Wild Wadi Waterpark is one that will stick in little (and big) memories for a very long time to come.

Roxy Cinemas

Explore Dubai’s unique open-air beachfront mall situated in Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach residential area, a haven of more than 40 restaurants and an epic waterpark. After a day of sun and sand, transport yourself into the world of film at Roxy Cinemas, with state-of-the-art sound and cinema technology for an optimised viewing experience.
