MADINAT JUMERIAH CHRISTMAS MARKET
Another Christmas event, The Christmas Market at Madinat Jumeirah is a must visit.An event that happens every year,Its a place where not only the kids but adults can surely enjoy and have fun.Heres our experience
We decided to go there on a weekday avoiding crowds.Arriving at around 4:30 we were all excited but the traffic around Madinat Jumeirah is bizarre.and it’s really hard to find parking inside so it took us almost half and hour 😖☹️to get inside.Anyway it was almost 5:00 when we reached.Seeing all the Christmas decoration and the Giant Christmas Tree Princess Z got really excited and couldn’t wait to experience at the attractions.
The first thing I did was buy the tickets.(it’s exchanging cash for money tokens,using them as per the required price ).It usually gets crowded but the good thing about this year is that they made it a lot better by having several tickets counters around rather then just 1.After getting our tickets we lined up in the queue for the mini-train ride.As it was not crowded Princess Z turn came in fast. 😁
Note:The price for the mini-train ride 🚂is 15 Dhs (token money)per ride for 4 rounds
Next,was the snow park area,we had to go across for it via the link bridge.(another new feature this year)The queue here was very long.Princess Z is very impatient and doesn’t like standing in the line so she and her aunt went to grab some snacks while I waited in the line for her.Her turn to play came in after 25mins in waiting.Once she was in playing with the snow ❄️☃️I clicked some pictures waved and watched her from the outside.Every child is allowed only to play for 15mins so the time got over very fast and as I was hungry we went to grab a snack at one of the stalls.I don’t remember the name though but they had great eatables to offer.As being a fan of potatoes Princess Z and I had French fries for the time being.🍟.
Note:The snow park area costed us 25Dhs (token money)and a plate of French fries 25Dhs (cash)as well.
Then while eating we when for the gingerbread man decoration.The stall was a bit far from all the other attractions(had to take another link bridge).Once on the stall we went for 2 cookies,one gingerbread man and a Christmas tree.Handing them out on a plate with white pipping,some jellybeans and sprinkles to decorate.Decorating was Princess Z’s best part as she got to mess around.
There were 2 more attractions that we didn’t go for.One was the bungee jumping as Princess Z was too small for it and the boat ride across Madinat Jumeirah with Santa 🎅🏻 which Princess Z didn’t wanted to go for 😔.Later when we where done with everything that Princess Z wanted to do we strolled around the market area,looking at what the shops/stalls had to offer.Stopping as usual at the Lindt chocolate 🍫 stall and buying sweet treats for ourselves 😋.
The day was spend well making new memories again this year.Princess Z enjoyed every moment here and can’t get enough of it.She will be visiting it again soon🎄😁
NOTE:The Christmas Market at Madinat Jumeirah is on till the 27th of December.
Do visit it before it ends!!!
