It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Christmas is just around the corner and whilst there’s no chance of seeing snow in Dubai over the festive holiday, that doesn’t mean you can’t find ice. If you’re one of those people who’s Christmas just isn’t complete without a spot of ice skating, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s where you can ice skate in Dubai this Christmas…
