With the kids
Hit the Alpine slopes
Round up the brood and take refuge from the soaring summer heat for a couple of hours in the alpine slopes of Ski Dubai. Wrap up warm and go on a panoramic chairlift ride up the slopes to the Avalanche café, where the kids can enjoy a cup of steaming hot chocolate and check out the impressive slope views. Dhs80 per person (including hot chocolate).
Open daily. www.malloftheemirates.com (800-FUN).
Mini Monsters fun
We love Mini Monsters, basically because there are so many cool deals to be had all week long. However, the best days to go are Sunday to Tuesday, from 9am to 2pm, because all play is completely free – yes, FREE! And while the sprogs do their worst in the huge jungle gym, mums can enjoy a decent cup of coffee together or even stay for lunch, as the cafe serves up an array of bites – and personally, we really rate the wood oven pizzas.
