Is Dubai Children-friendly?

Hi,

I'm new here. Sorry if this has been discussed to death.

We are considering a move to Dubai, and being embarrassingly ignorant about Dubai, I have to ask if it is a good place to bring up very young children.
:oops:

How do expat wives spend their free time with their children?

Re: Moving to Dubai

After the first 2 weeks the shine wears off! Dear dbxsoul, I see you often caution newbies that any excitement would vanish after awhile in Dubai. I would greatly appreciate it if you could elaborate on this. Is it because newbies go to Dubai with unrealistic expectations, and hence are let down or...

Oh dear ... Does that mean everyone is bored? There is no fun hanging out at shopping centres, unless there are indoor play area for the little ones.

I am awestruck by the hotel! :shock: It is really one of its kind.

I read somewhere on the net that US$1billion was spent on furnishing the Burj al-Arab that it will take 400 years of full occupancy to just BREAK EVEN.

How can anyone afford even the lowest of US$6000 a night?!

Thank you Nik for your post. :)

Someone nice like yourself posted the link to me last night, and I am browsing it as I post this.

I would like to get in touch with members here who are now living in Dubai with their family/children. I would be lovely to get personal accounts.

Thank you for your reply, Liban. I need to clarify my question - If someone were to work at DIFC, where would be a good place to live if he wants to avoid/minimise the peak morning traffic? http://www.downtownliving.ae/?p=42 Are these residences and villas under construction or fully completed? It's...

Hmm .... what artist's impressions can do to people's expectations! The trouble is, I cannot tell from where I am (miles away) whether the photos on the web are mere drawings or actual photos!

Zabeel Palace Visit during Eid

Hi,

Has anyone paid a visit to the Zabeel Palace during Eid before?

I hope the moderators clamp down hard on you. You make this board look bad. It's been great until I "see" you. :evil:
