Spooky Family Holidays From Dubai

TravelPost Category - TravelTravel - Post Category - Long HaulLong Haul

Trick or treat? Grab the fam for a Halloween break abroad mamas.

We love a good old Halloween party and a trick or treat session around the block but a holiday abroad? Yup that wins every time – and what better way to celebrate October than with a spooky family break to Europe (plus you get to breathe some cool crisp air and soak up the outdoors while the humidity hangs around in Dubai). And if your gang isn’t into haunted castles or cities after dark, there’s always the cuddly version with Mickey and his friends!

Halloween Trips - Bran Castle

Bran’s (aka Dracula’s) Castle, Transylvania

Dracula’s castle combines a history of myth and imagination, and some twisted truths. Once said to be the home of Vlad the Impaler, the reputed inspiration for Bram Stoker’s famous Dracula. Every year the castle comes alive celebrating Halloween with Count Dracula.

Cost also includes tickets for Halloween with Count Dracula, return economy flights, return airport transfers in Bucharest and train tickets to Brasov for AED 3,980 per person (2 adults and 1 child under the age of 12).

Halloween Trips - Hong Kong

Haunted Hong Kong with a touch of luxury

Hong Kong combines flavours of the East, influences of the West and greenery all year round. It also gets spooky during Halloween with street festivals and theme parks joining in the fun. Make sure to pack your Halloween outfit for Saturday, 31 October – but if you do forget, there are endless possibilities for shopping – check out our Sassy Mama sisters over in Hong Kong for some ideas.

Explore the Wan Chai District in a two hour walking tour after dark, stopping in front of mansions and other buildings that are reputed to be haunted. Ocean Park has a few events going on too, all in the Halloween spirit.

Halloween Trips - Disney Halloween Festival

Euro Disney, Paris

Instead of spooky creatures, surround yourself with Mickey, Minnie and Jack-o’-lanterns at Disneyland® Park on the outskirts of Paris, and celebrate with their Halloween festival – an array of events to keep the whole family entertained for hours. The yellow and orange hues of autumn will surround you and the crisp air will be the perfect setting to enjoy Parisian hot chocolate.

Cost also includes return economy stop-over flights, return airport transfers and a 3 day park ticket for AED 5,130 per person (2 adults and 1 child below the age of 12). The ticket allows you to step in and out of the two Disney® Parks as often as you please over the three days and experience unlimited fun filled access to all rides, parades and attractions!
