Asset 5-131x223 United Arab Emirates

East meets West in the United Arab Emirates (UAE)! This sleek, modern country is a beautiful vacation spot for families. Whether you visit Dubai or Abu Dhabi, there are tons of things for kids to see and do. If your family is into amusement parks, Dubai has some of the world’s best — LegoLand, Motion Gate (featuring fan-favorite movie characters like Shrek and Kung Fu Panda), and Bollywood Dubai. Dubai is also home to the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, and world-famous Atlantis Resort, which features everything you need for the perfect getaway on the UAE’s gorgeous beaches. And don’t worry about the heat — there are tons of indoor attractions as well, such as giant shopping malls that include everything from aquariums to indoor skiing and ice skating, so parents can check out the so-called Mecca of Shopping while kids have a blast too. If you find yourself in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, there are even more amusement parks (including Warner Bros World, Yas Waterworld, and Ferrari World), as well as cultural and historical sights. Take a safari tour of the beautiful UAE desert and try out sandboarding or camel riding. Visit the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi, a stunning architectural feat that happens to be one of the world’s seven wonders. It even holds world records like the largest chandelier and largest carpet! Whatever you choose to do, your trip to the UAE is sure to create memories that will last a lifetime.
