Family festive fun sorted
Looking for something a little different this holiday season?

The nip in the air, school holidays, Christmas shopping, year-end parties…

There’s never a better time to live it up in Dubai than the winter months, and in this maximum city, where you’re spoilt silly for choice, there are tons of ways to celebrate the festive season in the open air.

One of our favourites this year is Dubai Garden Glow, a one-stop shop for all things fun, and here’s why:

The great outdoors 

If one of your New Year resolutions is to spend more time in the great outdoors, check out the park’s Back to Nature high-voltage jungle.

All-in-one fun 

If you’re sick of segregate family activities that involves hours in the car, multiple drop-off locations, and a schedule that is so busy, just thinking about it makes your head spin, Dubai Garden Glow is the perfect alternative as it has something for everyone including dino and forest trails, food stations, and ice-sculpted animals in sub-zero temperatures. 

Do it for the ‘gram

Unleash your inner influencer as you and your family interact with the exhibits to create Instagrammable optical illusions. At Magic Park you can take photos of you climbing up the walls in the upside down room, or why not create an image of you in a mirror looking out at you, or capture a shot of you standing at a 45-degree angle in the living room. Likes guaranteed.

Fit fam

The endless walking trails at Dubai Garden Glow are perfect if you want to get active ahead of January 1 and start the New Year as you mean to go on.

  • Dubai Garden Glow remains open from 4pm to 11pm Saturday to Thursday, and from 4pm to midnight on Fridays. Visit dubaigardenglow.com for more information
