Kids go for free to Dubai


By Nigel Thompson

Children will get accommodation for nothing in Dubai this summer.

The emirate’s “Kids Go Free in Dubai” ­promotion for holidays between May 14 and September 30 means two children under 12 can eat, sleep and play for free when ­accompanied by two paying adults.

More than 45 hotels and ­apartments are taking part, including the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Atlantis, The Palm.

Many of Dubai’s attractions are also free for up to two under 12s (based on two adults), including Wild Wadi water park, SEGA Republic, Ski Dubai and Aquaventure & Lost Chambers. The offer also includes free travel for kids on Dubai Metro and free family entry to heritage sites, including Sheikh Saeed House.

Minimum three-night stay is required. A 50% discount for ­children’s flights with Emirates is also up for grabs.
