Budget-friendly Activities in UAE with QiDZ
Returning to pre-holiday life can be an adjustment not only for children but for adults as well. After a marathon of celebrations, it is now time for the daunting task of balancing the books and still find compelling activities for the family. Helping parents not to break the bank at this time of the year, QiDZ, a go-to mobile app for family activities which can be downloaded for free from App Store and Google Playstore, recommends activities at venues where families can spend less and spend time together in nature.
Farm Tour at Emirates Bio Farm (Al Ain)
Inspire kids to live a healthy and active lifestyle and hop on to a tractor tour around the farm. Immerse in the refreshing greenery of fields and greenhouses while learning about organic and sustainable farming methods, as well as have a chance to harvest your own vegetables! The 45 to 60-minute tour filled with non-stop educational fun for the whole family is available until 30 April 2020 and can be booked through QiDZ for AED 35 per person.
Close encounter with camels at the Camel Farm (Dubai)
Worth a short drive to the desert, the Camel Farm is an oasis of fun in Al Lesaily with interactive experiences for the whole family. Activities include camel-feeding and riding, as well as petting and feeding the other small animals on the farm. The farm was redeveloped in 2018 to host visitors where camels can be approached in their natural living environment. Book a tour through QiDZ for AED 40 and various activities that are priced separately.
Take in the sustainable design features at Masdar Park (Abu Dhabi)
Located in the outskirts of Abu Dhabi, Masdar Park is a sustainability-themed family destination using recycled shipping containers powered by solar panels to house cafes and restaurants. It also has a children’s playground, music wall, and sports facilities featuring a 2.5km-long Al Mamsha trail perfect for running, walking, biking & fitness sessions, with exercise equipment dotted along the route. The park’s signature design feature is the ‘Tree of Light’ which changes color with human interaction. Check what other families had to say about the park on QiDZ. Admission is free.
Get back to nature at Al Barsha Pond Park (Dubai)
Take in the greenery and serenity of this park only a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of SZR. Situated opposite Al Barsha Mall, this park is FREE to enter and borders a man-made pond with activities for the whole family. Bring the kids’ bikes down, pack a picnic basket or just let them loose on the grass. Find out the different sports activities you can do at the park from QiDZ. It’s always great to see the kids outside and away from the screen, so bring them down here.
Discover one of Dubai’s hidden gem: Secret Beach or Black Palace Beach
Share the secret with your family and friends through QiDZ to enjoy peaceful mornings or picnics at sunset, and crystal blue waters with views of the Burj al Arab, Dubai Marina, and Palm Jumeirah. The shallow waters make it ideal for children and exploring underwater nature. This little hidden natural beauty in Al Sufouh is not well known outside of those that live in Dubai which is why it’s called the “Secret Beach.” It is tucked away between the Burj Al Arab and Palm Jumeirah and hidden behind a row of palm trees. No facilities or beach activities here, just beautiful nature at its finest.
