    It was exquisite. Would have preferred to stay longer to everyone. There is an endless list of things to do. Numerous lodging and dining options. Ideal location for experiencing a variety of things at once.

    Good little museum, we visited one morning as part of a Dubai City tour we had booked. Quite small, but it provided an inside of how houses were in old Dubai in years gone by. We didn’t spend much time there but worth a visit if you’re passing.

    One of the prominent shows in Dubai and a must haves in your To Do list. The show houses some great stunts and skills by Dolphins and seals. The show is very well choreographed and articulated. This will surely be loved by the kids. Do note the show timings are fixed and you need to reach there well in advance as there can be a long Queue to get in. You also need to buy ticket for the park over and above the Dolphin show ticket which you might have already booked. The seating is clean and place is very well managed.

    Interesting historic district of Dubai dating back to the 1890s. Also known as the Al Fahidi Neighborhood. Several small museums and cafes in the district. Nearby is the Al Fahidi Fort and Dubai Museum and Dubai Creek where you can take an Abra across the river to explore the Old Souk. Al Seef along Dubai Creek is also nearby and worth exploring.

    Amazing place for kids and family! The stuff is very friendly and helpful:) Definitely recommend to take your kids to the beautiful Creek park and Children city, and you can spend a whole day here. My son loves this place! Lots of things to do, not just educational but also something fun for kids, especially my son’s favorite place is the soft play area where is available for kids under 110cm height.

    This museum is the first place I visited in Dubai. It's incredible. It gives me a full understanding of Dubai's culture and history, Ms. Xinyan Liu gave us a tour in the Perfume house. She is very professional, explained in details. We really enjoyed with her. Highly recommend this museum.

    I have been to Dubai many times but never been to historic part of old Dubai. This time I made effort. Getting down from nearest metro station, I kept on walking towards Al Fahidi Historical neighbourhood. The place gave me a sense that local Dubai people is not only about glittering building, they lived a Bedouin life in tents in deserts. Coffee museum and cultural center were good to visit. Then took a boat ride across the river to go gold souk. Overall I had expected little more from the place. It stills shows concrete houses in old design. Instead, there could been tents in the desert. I would say, it’s a good to have visit, not a mystery-have visit.

    It's a fun way to spend around 1.5 hours of your time. Really cool illusions, as well as insta moments and puzzles with great photo opportunities with your family or friends.

    A varied shopping center with everything from bazaars in the basement to AYA experiences, many good restaurants, a large selection of shops and a large supermarket (Carrefour) where you can do most of your shopping.
    We would recommend and encourage visitors to Dubai to visit Wafi Mall, it is certainly worth a visit or several.

    The actual Dubai Garden Glow is fantastic, the dinosaurs look very real and what a view of Dubai walking around. The lights were spectacular.. make sure you take your walking shoes as there is lots to see when it comes to the lights.
    The only thing that put us off and why I'm giving it a slightly lower view is the constant pestering as you walk past the food stalls...to get to the dinosaur park you have to walk past them all and every single member of each food stall is very full on and in your face about buying their food. You then have to walk past them again to get back to the lights and despite only walking past less than hour before the same staff get in your face and pushy about buying food. We took the little train around the park and even sat on the train they are shoving food menus in your face it was horrible and stressful. We did stop to get an ice cream and they man gave us 3 different prices and then tried to short change me. Only downside, be prepared it was really not something i expected from this park but the experience of the lights after thankfully made us forget.

    Activity Duration: Picnic, Barbecue, or just lie around. From 1 hour to half a day.
    Ratings: 7/10 (Tourists can club this park with Dolphinarium)

    UAE is a desert country, but you have to drive away from the cities to actually see the desert. Amidst the never-ending puzzle of zigzagging roads and towering skyscrapers, you can find some beautiful (and mostly huge) public parks, constructed by Dubai Parks Authorities. A big thumbs up to the Government for first conceptualizing and developing these parks and then maintaining them in these harsh climates in an immaculate manner. Now here are my 5-Pointers on some of the best Dubai parks. Dubai might not have a Central Park like New York, but there are many alternatives in different areas for some fun-filled picnics. (These parks might not be big enough attractions for tourists, but they are sure shot life savers for the residents)
    1. The Good: Well-maintained grassy lawns. Tick. The breeze from Creek. Tick. Walk along the sea. Tick. Children's play area. Tick. Barbecue. Tick. Attraction=Dolphinarium. Tick. Some cute bicycles and buggies to ride around the park. Tick
    2. The Not-So-Good: Some entry points are closed. And walking from one gate to another is really a hassle. Plus NOL card top ups not available on all gates. Need to address this issue as it is very very inconvenient.
    3. The WoW factor: Huge area. Well Maintained. Lots of play areas for kids. Creek view is a plus.
    4. Money Matters: 5 AED per person. Well worth it.
    5. The 5-point Experience: Dubai Park Authorities needs to be given big kudos for creating such places for the common public. You never run out of options for weekend outings in Dubai and this park is one such place. Huge place with a lot of options. We hired the small family vehicle (buggy that works like a bicycle) to drive around the park and that was super fun.
    My Verdict: Just come here and have fun.
