Where to go out in the evening with the children in Dubai?

Just like during the day, Dubai is very lively in the evening, if not more so. There are many places where you can enjoy the beauty of this city at night with your children. 

For example, you can visit Dubai Mall. From 6pm onwards, the fountain show starts. Until 22:00, the water comes alive to the rhythm of Arabic music, offering a magical view with luminous water jets, reaching 140m high.

You can also visit the Bollywood Parks Dubai. It is the first Bollywood theme park in the world. You will discover a variety of sets from the most famous Bollywood movies. You will be able to participate in highly entertaining musicals and have a realistic Bollywood experience.

Your kids may be on vacation, but that doesn't mean they can't learn while having fun. The perfect place to do this is Kidzania Dubai. There are many enriching and fun activities for children. They can learn more about the Kinder chocolate factory by visiting it. 

They will have a lot of fun with role-playing exercises. The instructors will also teach them how to use a flight simulator.

Dubai with a baby, what to watch out for?

It is quite possible to travel to Dubai with a baby. However, you should take some precautions. You should know that the ideal period to go there with a baby is in November. The temperatures are mild and pleasant for the little ones. Also, travel with your stroller, because you will travel long distances in Dubai. And these are not on foot.

Also the presence of a baby will limit your movements and activities. However, if you want to have some fun, your hotel will provide you with a baby-sitter. The rate will depend on the number of children, their age and the services offered. In addition, most restaurants have family-areas where your babies can be entertained. They offer menus and games adapted for them.

This city is very open to babies and this is a great relief for parents. The inhabitants are very generous with babies. Also, you will easily find where to buy the products your little one needs (food, wipes...). If you are far from your hotel and you need to change your baby, you will find in most of the toilets places equipped for that. Please note that the toilets in Dubai are very clean. 

Also, breastfeeding in the street is not allowed. You can easily do it in the corners of restrooms or restaurants.
