Or try some­where closer to home...

7 Days in Dubai - - SUMMER ESCAPES -

Won­der­ful, won­der­ful Copen­hagen... stay in a fam­ily room at the Ad­mi­ral Ho­tel close to Ny­havn, with its many cafes and restau­rants, and set off on a boat tour of the city. The Dan­ish cap­i­tal is the birth place of Hans Chris­tian An­der­sen - cre­ator of many char­ac­ters that the chil­dren will know and love. It is also home to Tivoli Theme Park, the sec­ond old­est theme park in the world, and many mu­se­ums which of­fer ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren over the sum­mer. And you can re­ally en­sure ‘every­thing is awe­some’ by fly­ing off to Bil­lund to check out Le­goland. Fa­mous for its semi-trop­i­cal cli­mate, Salalah in Oman is the per­fect close-by sum­mer break. A short flight from the UAE, it experiences the mon­soon, lo­cally known as Kha­reef, be­tween July and Septem­ber, which brings misty rains and cooler tem­per­a­tures, nour­ish­ing the lush green land­scape and cre­at­ing an ideal des­ti­na­tion for na­ture and ad­ven­ture seek­ers. The fam­ily-friendly Salalah Rotana Re­sort has a su­per ‘Dis­cover Kha­reef Travel Guide’ on its Rotana Times web­site which pro­vides a great re­source if you are con­sid­er­ing vis­it­ing. It out­lines all the ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able in the area and the re­sort of­fers tai­lor­made tours to the area’s sights, like Wadi Dar­bat, Jebel Samhan Na­ture Re­serve, Al Marneef Caves and more.
