Kids’ Guide to Dubai

Explore the world with Zoom!

Hi, it’s Zoom here from Birmingham Airport!

I love travelling and keeping a record of all the places I’ve visited in my scrapbook!

Check out this entry from Dubai!



Dubai is one of the most amazing cities in the world!

It’s just under 7 hours from Birmingham Airport.

It’s hard to think that just 100 years ago it was just a small town with just a few Bedouin traders and pearl divers.



Dubai is known for having some of the tallest building in the world and one of them – the Burj Khalifa – is one of the tallest ever built!

It has one of the world’s fastest elevators – well, you’d need that or a jet pack to reach the top floor!

Now, have you ever seen water dance?

The Dubai Fountain is the world’s largest choreographed fountain system!

It dances better than Girls Aloud – squirting 22,000 gallons of water 150 metres into the air!

Each colourful jet sways in time to music – it’s one of the most popular shows in Dubai, so obviously I made sure I got loads of snaps for my scrapbook!


Dubai is really hot so I headed to the waterfront for a bit of adventure… but couldn’t decide between jet-skiing, water-skiing, scuba diving, snorkelling or deep-sea fishing!

So I opted for the Wild Wadi Waterpark!

There was loads of cool rides – my favourite was The Wipeout!

But if you’re still in the search of something colder, you could try Ski Dubai – a huge indoor ski centre with five crazy fun runs!


I love being able to remember the trips that I have done.

Why don’t you create a scrapbook of your holidays? It could be online like mine, or in a book or on your computer!
