I agree with you! I've been in Abu-Dhabi with sightseeing tour from Dubai. We've visited the Big Mosque (it's just awesome!!!), Corniche beach (many restaurants and nice views), Heritage Village (history object) and Yas Island (I liked Ferrari World there). I booked this tour on must2go, they have vide variety of entertainment in all Emirates.))

If you're looking for something that's different from what you're used to but also comfortably familiar at the same time, might I suggest South Korea. They have some of the same kid-stuff there that you'd find in North America, like theme parks, zoos, beaches, indoor mazes, baseball games, etc. But they also have an ancient culture, a wide variety of different types of shopping experiences, historic palaces and temples, and so on.


Navigating the country is easy; most of the signage is in English (as well as Korean) and many people there speak English. Public transportation is extensive. The country is clean, safe, and generally devoid of the high-pressure sales tactics that vendors in some other countries seem to go in for. And if the kids don't want to sample the Korean food, you'll find plenty of pizza and American-style fast food as well.


But be prepared for heat and humidity all summer long, and a lot of rain if you go in July.

Must you go in the summer? The weather is brutal in most places unless you visit mountain resorts. You're Canadian. You're going to be in for a shock when you feel the heat and humidity. Why not spring, fall or even winter?

Don't listen to him, he's a biased arctic gardener! He's been trying to trick people into winter travel forever...

Traveling in monsoon is NOT fun. Nor is traveling in the intense heat of Dubai/Abu Dhabi as been suggested. Many Asian countries do not have ideal weather during June/July/August. I'd google some specific cities to get an idea. Here is some info on a few countries - https://www.selectiveasia.com/asia-h...s/weather/july.

BTW Must2Go recommendations are coming from new members/first-time posters. Looks like they are advertising.

Sure it is. I like traveling in SE Asia much more when the rains come in May, it cools everything down from the blistering March/April heat and the landscapes start to look nicer. Just keep a cheapo poncho rolled up in your pocket.
