10 Family-Friendly Things To In Dubai This March

It’s the beautiful season of spring, and for Dubai, that means the danger of heat is looming around the corner. Although days are quite hot, the evenings and nights are still rather clement and windy. March is one of the funnest months in Dubai, and the city always has a list of awesome activities lined up! A host of events in the city have been called off due to the coronavirus outbreak. But fret not! There’s a lot more to look forward to.
