Because of the good weather, every season is tourist season in Dubai and desert safaris sell like hot cakes. You should book for your overnight desert safari in advance. Prepare amply because this is a tough desert ride, climbing one sand dune after the other. Desert nights are rich in folklore, food and fire.
See World-Class Aquariums

You can always choose between the Dubai Aquarium that is inside Dubai Mall or the Lost Chambers in the Atlantis. The Dubai Aquarium is quite popular because of the spectacular design as well as the 140 species of marine animals.
Take A Family Yacht Rental Vacation
Fronted by water all around, you should not leave Dubai without taking a yacht rental Dubai for at least four hours out in the Dubai’s water. You can see the Dubai skyline perfectly from the water and shoot panoramic images.
The crew will keep you entertained with food, music, drinks and much more. Experience sailing in a way that you have never done before, on a luxury yacht. Get an Arabian Sea sailing experience that you will never forget.
If you do not want to pay through the nose for a luxury yacht, a regular one will do. You can have a full day of sailing in a yacht with your family.
Visit One Of The Three Big Water parks In Dubai
There are three main waterparks in Dubai – the Aquaventure Waterpark in Atlantis, Yas Waterworld and the Wild Wadi. Read the terms carefully because there is a certain height requirement for the kids to be allowed on some of the rides. Book earlier because the ticket price is higher when you pay at the gates. Inside the waterparks, there are many thrills such as rides, water slides and many more. Your children will absolutely love this adventure.
You Must See The Dubai Fountains
This is a must-see when you are in Dubai. You can watch the Dubai fountains in the evening. Usually, the rise and fall of the jets is synched with music. You may even catch some Michael Jackson or Lionel Richie. The fountains rise to 500 feet and fall back graciously.
If you have seen the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, you will notice a somewhat similar effect. It is because the same team designed the fountains. These ones stand on the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake. Although there is a performance everyday, check the times online.
The Museum of Illusions
If this mind twister museum does not blow your kids of their feet, nothing ever will. It gives you a sort of a djinn-released-from-the-bottle kind of experience. People who have been to this museum call it a masterpiece of deception and exhilarating fun especially for the children. Visual illusion has never been this good and two hours spent here leave a lasting impression on your memories.
