Colorful Motiongate (Dubai)

“There is nothing more fun than entertaining kids!”  by Jerry Seinfeld

This is also in response to the Word of the Day: OPPORTUNITY .  This may be our last time to get this opportunity to be in this place as we finally went back home for good.  But who knows what will happen in the future?…

We were there last January this year and had a blast of fun! (related link HERE).  My son enjoyed it so much and asked me when we could be back. Unfortunately, we won’t be for a very long time.  As we cannot predict the future, especially now we have this covid-19 to worry about among other things in life.

Dubai is nice for some fun and will always recommend for people who will do some transit to both UAE Cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.  Try to have a stop over of at least 2-3 days to fully enjoy the country and what each city has to offer.

For now we will only reminisce our times in both cities.  And yes… wait for the new normal to push through once we all can safely travel again.  It depends in each country.  Stay safe everyone!!  Cheers 🙂

Destination: Dubai Parks and Resort

We were here 2 years ago but only went to LEGOLAND for our son to enjoy and no time to roam around after as it was late and we have to go drive almost 2 hours to go back home to Abu Dhabi.  So this year last January we finally able to get around and see what this big park can offer.

I highly recommended ROVE Parks Hotel as it is inside the Dubai Parks and Resort along with other resorts like LAPITA and 4 themed parks (Motiongate, 2 Legoland, Bollywood & Riverland).  We got a good deal at that time and 1 theme park ticket was included in our hotel accommodation. The room was enough for us, modern and clean.  The restaurant offers a buffet which is always good and it’s spacious inside with wooden style decors.  They also have a laundry room and a BIG plus is having kids playroom includes PlayStations, games, badminton, etc. (my son loves it!). Always check their website for more deals.  I would love to come back here if ever we go back to the UAE.

ROVE PARK HOTEL 

OUTLET VILLAGE MALL  all the branded shoes, bags, and clothing are here with some discounted prices.  It is also inside the Village of Dubai Parks and Resorts.  There are a lot of free shows inside so when you get tired and sit on the bench there are possibilities a new show will start for everyone to enjoy!  One more reason why you have to visit this place!

RIVERLAND beautiful landscapes and buildings surrounding the 4 themed parks with restaurants and souvenir shops.  They really developed this for the enjoyment of people strolling around, getting their selfies and instagramable photos. One day is not enough to see it all.  The place is HUGE  plus some theme parks inside and a connected resort (LAPITA) to this place.  How I wish we still have time to explore! 😦

I will definitely miss Dubai and other emirates (Cities) and of course my adopted city Abu Dhabi.  I am not sure if we will ever come back to the UAE as it depends on what the future will bring us.  Somehow it hurts that for now, we bid our farewell to the beautiful and tolerant country of the UAE.  I will look back on all the throwback memories on Facebook and can only reminiscent of the past while we were living in this Country.  There are times I took it for granted and all the luxuries in life we had but now I am truly grateful that I have experienced it all while we can.

Cheers and I hope you like some of the photos and may give you some ideas if you happen to be in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, not to mention other emirates who are also as beautiful and interesting as these two.  Please check my older post about it as per this LINK1 and LINK2Thanks for taking the time to read, like and comment.
