Unsurprisingly, the summer calendar has remained chock-a-block during the summer months.

It’s flippin’ hot, but Dubai still brings you SO MANY ACTIVITIES throughout, and for that we are grateful.

For world-class concerts, movie marathons, indoor entertainment venues and more, here’s what’s kicking off this August in Dubai:

10. Take the kids to visit Modhesh World

As soon as you step foot inside you’ll see Modhesh World is an absolute feast for all the senses. Think mega-indoor entertainment arena with a whole load of amusement park and carnival-type rides.

The Go-Karting track is big enough for all ages and the carousel is just dreamy.

Entry is free, but you pay per ride. Suggested tip: let kids your kids know in advance how many rides they can go on, or they WILL lose the run of themselves
