Shoppers are sure to have picked up tricks from Mercato Mall’s carnival-themed fiesta, featuring roaming acrobats and circus workshops. Meanwhile, kids indulged in interactive indoor play at Modhesh World and Planet Modhesh, and loved Dubai Festival City Mall’s Tuesday mornings which were filled with reading, games and edible treats for the little ones.

Theme parks, adventure activities and relaxing spa days

Dubai has a host of venues designed to deliver unforgettable experiences and the summer brought those delights to everyone at unbeatable prices. While Dubai Metro users got to see their city from new perspectives (using special vouchers to visit landmarks including At The Top, Burj Khalifa), tourists benefited from the 50% discount on DubaiBigTicket.com to top attractions like VR Park and Dubai Ice Rink. After catching the hottest shopping promotions, visitors cooled down with the summer pass at LEGOLAND® and MOTIONGATE™, which offered 90 days of all-access park entry for the price of one ticket. The more adventurous sped past urban vistas, with 60% off the XLine Dubai Marina zipline. Many instead opted to pamper themselves with the limited-time deals at rejuvenating spots like ShuiQi Spa.
