Christmas Countdown: 5 places in Dubai where you can catch Santa
Let us grab our shampoo bottle microphone and belt out some Bublé real quick because Santa Claus is coming to town.
The holiday season isn’t complete without the good old man in red and his trusty elves. We know it all depends on how nice or naughty you’ve been this year but everyone fancies a visit to see Santa.
We’ve curated a list of the 5 top spots in Dubai to catch Santa doing his typical things. Pay him a visit, for you might be bestowed with the gift of your dreams. Or not. Maybe just some coal (and an eventual barbecue to enjoy this lovely Dubai weather).
Ski Dubai: Ski Dubai is offering up an entire package in the family pass for 4, complete with a visit to Santa and his grotto, a gift, a cup of hot chocolate and a printed photo for all 4 guests. Be sure you’ll have a holly-jolly Christmas.
Wafi Mall: Seeing Santa at Wafi Mall looks a little different from last year, in that you’ll have to book your slot in advance but it’s just as festive, nonetheless. There are three options available: a three-minute meeting with Santa, including a framed photo and a toy, a five-minute Snow Globe experience, bringing you inside an incredible snow dome and a combination of both activities.
Troppo Santa: Santa at Troppo Santa in Alserkal Avenue might have mixed some booze into that milk because he’s bringing some madness and fun to the table. You can become this quirky Santa and get a framed photo, free coffee included. That’s a bonus right there.
Souk Madinat Jumeirah: If you want to meet Santa for free, he’s showing up at Souk Madinat Jumeirah with his elves and hosting some super fun workshops from noon to 10pm everyday.
Dubai Festival City: Winter Wonderland at Dubai Festival City will give you a chance to meet Santa and become his little helper, while also engaging in some merry Christmas activities.
