Five Reasons You Should Take A Family Holiday to Dubai

5 reasons to take a family holiday to Dubai for winter sun
Living in England, somewhere over the winter period I feel the need to get away for some much-needed sunshine and warmth. We’ve been to several winter sun destinations over the past few years including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Tenerife and Egypt . My main requirement for a winter sun holiday is that it is hassle-free and have guaranteed sunshine. Of these places, my favourite winter sun destination with the children is Dubai. Here are my five reasons you should take a family holiday to Dubai if you are chasing winter sunshine. Why you should consider Dubai beach holidays for winter sun An Easy Destination First and foremost, the weather is guaranteed sunshine.  In addition, there are many flights to Dubai from all over the world.  Dubai is served by two Emirati airlines, Emirates and Etihad, who are both on a push to increase their range of flights.  Getting around Dubai is easy, too because taxis are plentiful and cheap.

The children throughly enjoyed the roller coaster ride.  I just prayed that the driver would get us to our destination in one piece and without overturning.  Just in case, you think I’m over-reacting, you can see YouTube clips of dune bashing accidents (which I convinced myself were not trained drivers of high-end tours). After a stomach-churning 30 minutes, we eventually got to the campsite in the desert.  There were camel rides on offer. My children though really liked playing in the sand. I know some of these safaris offer sand surfing if you want organised fun.  My children, however, had a blast running up and down the dunes, making sand angels and playing in what amounted to them as a giant sandbox.
