Aside from what SmartTraveller.gov.au say, would you go to Dubai for a week or 2 with young children if the opportunity arose?
Hubby may be working there for a few weeks (August), and there might be an opportunity for us (me and our 2sons aged 3.5 & 1.5) to join him for a week or 2 at very little cost. We travelled extensively in Europe late last year, so I am not daunted at the prospect of flying with the kids (I would be flying with them by myself).
But I want to know if it's worth going to Dubai for more than a stop over? Given it's 14 hours each way, I don't want to do it and wonder why I bothered afterwards!
I don't know much about travelling in the region, and while I will do my research as I always do, I would love some real life parent experience to help me!
What is there to do?
Is it safe?
DH would be working during the week, so are there activities for me to do with the kids during the week, and more we could do as a family over the weekend?
What are travel costs like for Australians (considering our currency)?
How long would you go for?
Do you have any tips for staying/visiting there?
Would love your input!!!
Ta in advance :)
