So this was how today's post was supposed to go - Dubai Hotels Are On Sale and Wild Wadi has a 25% discount if Paying By Visa

Irresistible! You'd think.

Have booked our flights for next week, before the munchkins go back to school. I thought I had a fabulous deal at Radisson Blu Downtown Dubai - a business class room for 4 nights inc. free massage, breakfast, nibbles and happy hour for KD 142. Or maybe it isn't? It seems there is no business/club lounge (why call a room a business class room if there is no business class lounge?), and no free massage (confusing Facebook offer). Is it me or was this misrepresented? 

So far, not so good.


Radisson Downtown Dubai hotel looks pretty impressive. Will let you know how it goes.

























Sadly, the confusing Facebook offer of a free massage is not included in this business class rate you need to pay considerably more for the 'Free' massage. 

























Regarding the massage it was explained to me that you have to book the 'Stay and Relax' deal to get the massage. Okay point taken; but seems a bit excessively priced for a 'free' massage so I'll pass on that one. 





You will notice that all the prices of Radisson's best rates are the same as Booking.com. I was assured that the Booking.com prices are exclusive of taxes and the Radisson website was cheaper. Hmmmmm.. So what are the AED 340 of estimated taxes added on by Radisson to the total. And WTH does 'estimated' mean? I am already wishing I had booked elsewhere, let's hope I'm wrong.

There are some absolute bargains for hotels in Dubai on Booking.com.



Wild Wadi Water Park

Wild Wadi Water Park Visa card discount is a whopping 25% discount. Woohoo! I think. Would be fabulous if I could get on the website to book it. Website down all day yesterday. Went to book today and can not see a Visa discount promo code anywhere in the check out. Have messaged but no response. Website down again. Starting to think this trip may be cursed.


Wild Wadi Waterpark it has to be done.







IMG's Worlds of Adventure 

Working on tickets for the opening of IMG's Worlds of Adventure which is the world's largest indoor theme park opening on 31st August. Except the website was also down for more than 12 hours. Finally sorted. Looking forward to this one.







Burj Khalifa

I managed to find a Groupon voucher for a trip up the Burj Khalifa (Yes UAE has Groupons always worth checking for discounts) the voucher includes fast track entry, a drink and a pastry for around KD 11 each. Hope my little ones can keep the pastry down. Note to self: bring plastic bag and dettol wipes.


Will keep working on the Wild Wadi tickets failing that we'll shall just have to queue on the day.

Free Water Park at Fahaheel Seaside





KUWAIT TIMES: As part of its efforts to boost tourism in Kuwait, the Ministry of Information on Wednesday launched a Water Park on the Fahaheel seaside area next to Al Kout Mall. This park is open daily from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm for families – from August 17 to September 30, 2016.
There will be no entrance fee. There will be musical concerts during the weekends (in the evening) and also during Eid Al Adha. Some of the concerts will be held inside the water part – at the Kout Mall theatre. Jasim Al-Habib, Assistant Undersecretary for Tourism Sector at the Ministry of Information said that the Ministry is working with various governmental institutions to boost local tourism in Kuwait. “We are happy to see many people at this event. This temporary Water Park will be available for another 45 days after which we will kick start the winter activities,” Jasim Al- Habib told the Kuwait Times during the launching ceremony.
“We have 200 summer activities this season and we are looking forward to having more. This is just the beginning. We are planning more activities in the future,” Al- Habib added. The Water Park is part of the Summer Festival for 2016 of the Tourism Sector at the Ministry of Information. It is organized in cooperation with Condor International Gen Trade Company. This is the first festival to be held by the Ministry.
To ensure the safety of the visitors, lifeguards, paramedics, firefighters and diving team are present at the place. Also the organizers are available for any information or help. More information about the activities are available on the Ministry’s account on Instagram: @Kuwaitourism
