Saturday, Jun 23, 2012
Dubai: Whether you are a tourist or an expatriate, an Emirati or an Arab—wherever you’re from and whatever your age—there’s no reason why Modhesh World can’t be included in your family’s itinerary this summer.
Spanning 37,000 square metres, Modhesh World remains the largest indoor edutainment venue in the region. It is home to 36 zones that have various themes and concepts to enthral visitors of all ages or nationalities.
One of its main attractions is the Heritage Zone at Hall 2 which enables expatriates to catch a glimpse of the Arabs’ traditional way of life—tents and huts, which serve as a backdrop for other activities that are showcased at the zone.
Hall 5 or the Panasonic Zone is another place where the Arab and Western cultures meet. Parents and children may use their 3D glasses to watch educational and entertaining clips featuring historical landmarks across the world.
Laila Suhail, CEO, Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment (DEPE), and Ebrahim Saleh, Festivals Coordinator General and Deputy CEO of DEPE, received Shaikh Majid.
Modhesh World, which welcomed half a million visitors in 2010, is open to visitors until August 25. It operates throughout the week from 10am - 10pm on weekdays, 10am -12 midnight on Thursday, and 2pm - 12 midnight on Friday.
Entry to Modhesh World costs Dh10 each for visitors aged three and above.
