One Of The So Many Places To Go To In Dubai

Middle Eastern spring is the best season for families to do outdoor activities here in the former desert land of Dubai. Best time to skip the gigantic but always crowded malls during weekend and instead, take a dip at Dubai’s shorelines and stroll at its beautifully landscaped and well-featured wide parks.

Just weeks ago, we revisited the one of the famous parks in Dubai which is located in the heart of the city, the Zabeel Park. I would like to bring you there through this post with my snaps. 🙂

These fire trees firing like real fire. Rhyme eh? 🙂 I took this at Zabeel Park's Main entrance. Perfectly lined up trees coordinate with the evenly distributed benches. I don't know where have all the park goers gone at this time.

Was just so lazy that I didn't bring my tripod so I mounted my DSLR on the grass.

"Catch me if you can nanay" - My son Yuri to his nanay (mother). This image surely changes the perception of those who haven't gone to Dubai yet like what I have perceived before I came here. LOL!

Olah, este moshi moshi! Greetings from Japan...ese miniature temple at Zabeel Park. 🙂

Myself, nanay and yuri on the side of the miniature temple. Got no tripod but a pavement. 🙂

One of the caves in Zabeel Park's safe and rubberized playground. Children can play hang like a monkey with their climbers, slide slide and away, swing swing a song and many others. Almost all of Dubai parks are equipped with this kind of playground. That's how they value children. 🙂

"I know I am Spiderman but this web seems so big but would definitely trap my enemies. I want to climb on my web." - Yuri

"Eh?! So there goes Spiderwoman showing me her techniques on climbing" - Yuri

That's the way to Stargate. Zabeel Park's major feature full with indoor games and other amenities like roller coaster, karts and other rides. Unfortunately, 'twas not available that time. On maintenance perhaps?

This is the bridge that will link you to the other side of Zabeel Park. It crosses the longest and busiest road not just in Dubai but in the whole of UAE, the Shaikh Zayed Road.

The sun has set and we have just started our sail with Captain Yuri on the main deck. Small playgrounds like this are systematically distributed everywhere inside the park.

You can bring the gang and have some grilling. You can hold your child's birthday party in here too. 🙂

And finally were out. This is gate number 5? I forgot which gate this was.

There goes the quick tour at Dubai’s Zabeel Park with my 13 selected snaps. For a minimal entrance fee of only 5 Dirhams (US$ 1.3), you can have time well spent especially with family and friends.

Aside from all those features mentioned, free wifi internet connection is available, refreshments are everywhere, outdoor rental cycling and many others.

    I have never been to Dubai, in fact I have never been outside the Philippines. But somehow I pictured Dubai to be a desert, sand dunes all around. I certainly did not expect this burst of colors. Beautiful, makes me want to jump on the next flight to get them. I’m happy to be corrected.

    • 🙂 Thanks for that ladymoxie. You are like a confirmation to what I have mentioned that the image will surely changes somebody else’s perception about Dubai. Have a great one. Please do keep visiting my blog. Cheers!

    Wow those fire trees are beautiful. Almost as beautiful as Sakura blossoms.
    We have a small farm in the province and I was thinking of planting either a fire tree or Palawan cherry tree.

    There are 2 types of fire trees? Some are petite & others are quite tall huh?

  3. Good to hear that from you lady. I think I have seen Sakura blossoms thru mags, tvs and other prints but I am not sure which one. Anyway, fire trees really look lovely. If your planning to plant these kind of trees, why not? About kinds of fire trees, that I do not know. LOL!

    Thanks for dropping by! Cheers!

  5. Techie Liz says:

    Lovely park and family. Nice photo-processing, too!

  6. Love that park! We do have tons of park here too and I do really appreciate those parks where children can safely play and interact with other children. I love the perfectly lined up trees and the matching red benches. It also helps that you took really nice photos 🙂

    what a lovely place, hope I can be there too…

  8. I never been to Dubai, oh well, I haven’t travel outside the PI, but anyway, I love the photos taken in the park. The fire trees are beautiful, I hope to see this kind of tree in the future 🙂

    • You can come here Rosemarie If you really like it too. 🙂 Thanks for liking my photos.

      About the fire trees, you can also find these in the PI but very rarely. 🙂

  9. Jhari says:

    We’re here in Sharjah. Thanks for the tip. Showed it to my SIL and she loved your photos. Checked it on the map and will definitely visit it this coming Thursday.

    • Good to hear that you find it helpful Jhari. Yup, you can visit the park everytime, anyday you want. But we are in the middle of summer 🙂 Just a reminder. 🙂

      Thanks for dropping by Jhari!

      • Jhari says:

        That’s the problem, majinit 🙁
        But Insha Allah, we’ll have a good weather (not that humid) by Thursday. If not, there’s always a next time 😉

        **pumasok na pala comment ko, kala ko hindi.

    Great photos you got here! Love the color of the fire trees. I suddenly want to go their and relax under those trees and above the green grass of Dubai! I am really hoping my husband and I will go abroad soon. 🙂

    Hace a nice day!

  11. That is a fantastic decision Eds in going abroad. Hope it will materialize soon. Thanks for the kind words and for liking my snaps.


  12. verna says:

    Really nice shots. I’ve never been to Dubai, but I’ve seen some photos before, and I think your shots made Dubai look even more wonderful.

  13. seth says:

    My mom and brother are in Dubai and I will share this information to them so that they can go too and enjoy the scenery. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  14. Liv says:

    love the photos! they are great.
    i haven’t been to Dubai, but would love to go and tour Dubai soon 🙂

  15. Great shots indeed! And to think that we have the same brand of camera but I wonder why my pictures aren’t as beautiful as yours. 🙁 Makes me have more reason to take photography lesson. Soon!

    • Thanks for that Michelle. Yup, you can take photography lesson but if you want, and you’ll just be patient enough to just research it on the net, surely you’ll learn. I am not really good at photography to be honest but I am also in the process of expanding my horizons in the world of photography.

      Cheers! 🙂

    Nice view and nice shot as if professional photographer:) I love the color of the trees. I noticed that the place is so clean:)

  17. Rae says:

    I hope I can go there. Medyo ang mahal pala ng pamasahe papunta jan. Many of my friends live there.

  18. KRIZZA says:

    Never been there pa but I have many relatives working in Dubai and as they described to me the place, it’s really nice nga daw and so many good places to visit! 🙂

  19. Jhari says:

    It’s me again. Natuloy kami last Friday sa Zabeel park. We missed seeing those Fire trees though. We rode the train kasi from the other side then, since we brought our kids with us, they rolled over the green grass lang. LOL! Babaw noh? So we didn’t walk too much. Pagod narin kasi.

  20. itin says:

    I’m dying to go to Dubai for at least once in my life despite my mother’s incessant shoving of her fantastic Qatar living and employment.

    • To be honest, I have so many friends here in Dubai before that are now in Qatar. Employment rate and economy in Qatar right now I think is in great shape. Why not go to Qatar, and just visit Dubai when you have the time. Qatar-Dubai is just an hour travel by plane. 🙂

      Thanks for dropping by!

  21. what a beautiful place. Dubai is one of the most interesting , modern country of today. I hope i can visit it someday and see for myself the wonders it offers.

  22. I agree but I just hate summer season here, really. LOL! I also wish that you can come here in Dubai. 🙂 Cheers!

  23. Kristen says:

    my sister and her husband live in Abu Dhabi. I’ve seen a lot of photos and heard great stories about how wonderful Middle East it. I cannot wait to visit next year, and of course Dubai will be part of our itinerary!

  24. Pinay R. says:

    The place is so beautiful… your pictures so vivid! We didn’t go to the park when I was in Dubai… it was summer so we chose the mall!

  25. What wonderful photos. I’d love to visit that place. The colors are so vibrant. What a contrast to the dull days here in England at the moment. All our growth is dormant waiting for next summer.
