3 Christmas Activities in Dubai

We've been in the UAE as a family for almost three months now and have been so surprised to see how much Christmas cheer is here! To be a Muslim country, we expected it to be much more difficult to find Christmas decorations in Dubai, find activities to do as a family, and hold onto traditions (like Christmas markets!).

Here are 3 Christmas Activities in Dubai that you should try with your family!

  1. Expo City Dubai Christmas Market - This Christmas Market was so fun with the kids! There were snow machines everywhere, a little build-a-bear booth, letters to Santa post office station, and even a light show that covered the entire dome.

  2. Breakfast with Santa at Ski Dubai - The kids loved this! Even my almost 2 year old. We enjoyed breakfast while Santa roamed to each table, then had a chance to sit with Santa at his table as a family for the kids to chat him up.

  3. Madinat Jumeirah Christmas Market - We didn't make it to this one, but it looks so beautiful. I saw videos from day and night and both look like a winter wonderland waiting for festive fun!

This has been our most festive Christmas overseas! I hope this helps your family feel festive, too.
