Summer fun in Dubai – Beat the heat with indoor activities!

Have you no idea on what to do during the summer in Dubai? Are you looking for something fun to do while beating the heat? Dubai offers a variety of indoor activities and enjoyable recreation for the entire family.

For example, the much anticipated Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS), an annual shopping festival with in-store offers within 6,000 participating stores across the emirate, offers loads of bargains on consumer goods in some retail outlets, as well as holds some fun events and activities for families and children of all ages.

In addition to the shopping experience, the malls involved with DSS are hosting shows from fashion presentations to performances by some talented musicians and dancers, as well as concerts, exhibitions, housing playgrounds and fun zones that offers entertainment for the whole family.

Dates: 09 July – 20 August 2016

Event Locations: Dubai Mall and various parts of the emirate

About DSS: It was launched in the summer of 1998 by the Dubai government in order to promote Dubai as an international summer destination. Since its organization, the event by DFRE (Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment) has gone on to attract families year after year.

The festival mascot by name “Modhesh” has other amusement activities lined up for kids to keep them engaged throughout the summer at a few indoor facilities.

For one, there is Modhesh World, a one-stop hub for kids and teenagers to play games like bouncing up and down on inflatables. It is also a place for kids to learn from the educational zones and have fun in the adventure zones. This is Dubai’s ultimate indoor destination meant for kids to have a festive place to enjoy themselves in the various entertainment areas, while able to escape the summer heat too.

Rather than sitting at home bored watching television or playing with computers or mobiles, children are encouraged to be active at Modhesh World through shows, rides and games.
