Travel broadcaster Phil Blizzard discovers a new area at Dubai International’s Terminal 3 loaded with facilities and created specially for families.
If you are travelling through Dubai International’s Terminal 3 with family and children, a pleasant surprise awaits you at Concourse B’s Zen Garden, between Gates B7 and B8. The new family facility features a children’s area complete with creative play equipment, television screens featuring children’s programming, and baby changing rooms for added convenience.
The design of the area takes its inspiration from the Arabian Desert, with the topography of the floor similar to sand-dunes for children to walk around and traditional designs featured in all areas. There is even a climbing area and interactive games zone for kids who need to burn off any excess energy before the next flight. Whilst for those with less energy conversational-style seating has been added and made available for families waiting for flights with a range of both individual and group seats. For those who wish to have a meal or a snack before their flight the popular food and beverage outlets Starbucks, Ben’s Cookies, Sweet Factory, Red Carpet and Pauls are close by.
