The museum offers visitors a glimpse of where this monumental city has been and where it's going. The museum occupies the Al Fahidi Fort, which is the oldest building in Dubai, previously used by the monarch and as a defense station. Today, the museum features a variety of wings dedicated to Dubai's cultural, historical and geographical landscape. There's also a folklore wing that will likely keep younger ones entertained and engaged. A courtyard equipped with models of local boats and bamboo houses decorated with furniture used during that time period. Travellers recommend a visit if you're into history, or looking to beat the heat for an hour or two.

 

Dubai Parks and Resorts

Dubai Parks and Resorts offers children and the young at heart an amazing array of mega theme parks like Motiongate, Bollywood Parks and Legoland. You can even take a rest in Riverland entertainment and dining boulevard, which offers all the latest in dynamic family fun. Make this your most fun-filled family holiday yet by staying among the action at Lapita Hotel, a Polynesian-themed luxury hotel situated right in the parks. 

 

Jumeirah Mosque

Jumeirah Mosque towers over the coast from its perch south of the Dubai Marina. Its detailed white façade – which graces the 500-dirham note – mimics the architectural style of Islam's Fatimid period. Unlike Dubai's other mosques, non-Muslims are invited inside to marvel at Jumeirah's ornate decor, featuring detailed painted panels against bright blue and yellow backgrounds. Those planning to enter the mosque should come in modest attires – that means long sleeves and long pants or skirts. Women will also have to cover their heads with a scarf.

Kidzania

Situated inside The Dubai Mall, this award-winning concept has been designed as an ‘adult experience’ scaled down in size. Kidzania is an ‘edutainment’ complex complete with paved streets, buildings and a functioning economy. Watch the kids play grown-up, taking on jobs that range from firemen, chefs and doctors to radio-show hosts, Emirates pilots or even perfumers creating their very own scents.

Gold & Spice Souk

The Gold Souk, located on Dubai Creek's south bank in the Deira, specializes in glitz and glamour. Featuring glittering displays of necklaces, bracelets and earrings from more than 300 retailers, the Gold Souk is one of the most renowned gold jewelry trading centers in the world. In fact, approximately 20 percent of the world's gold passes through this market. But if you're not one for gold, don't fret. The souk also sells platinum, diamonds and silver. You're also guaranteed to get what you're paying for.

On the other side of the creek lies the pungent Spice Souk, where vendors hawk flavours from across the globe, including cinnamon, ginger and chilli. This is also the place where you'll find this delectable spice at a much lower cost here than you would at home. Travellers strongly suggest bargaining when visiting the souks in Dubai.
