Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is one of the most captivating attractions in Dubai. Located at The Dubai Mall, the largest mall in the world, offering a memorable journey into ocean life. With capacity to hold 10 million litres of water, Dubai Aquarium is one of the largest indoor aquariums in the world and it illuminates the marvels of the ocean floor, showcasing one of the most diverse collections of aquatic life. Located just above the aquarium, Underwater Zoo brings visitors up close with penguins, piranhas, crabs, water rats, sea horses, jellyfish and plenty more. A fascinating new addition at Underwater Zoo is King Croc, regarded as nature's rare phenomenon and one of the world's largest reptiles - at over 5 meters long and weighing an imposing 750 kg plus. Underwater Zoo regularly hosts innovative exhibits. One such exhibit, 'UAE's Night Creatures' presents the experience of nightfall in the desert as creatures of the dark.

Different activities different prices. I went for the basic one, to see the animals. Great and fun penguins and cocodrilos included. Fun.

Dubai Mall’s most mesmerising sight is this gargantuan aquarium where thousands of beasties flit and dart amid artificial coral. Sharks and rays are top attractions, along with sumo-sized groupers and massive schools of pelagic fish.

A visit to Dubai could not be complete without a visit to this wonder of the world. We were lucky to see sharks, penguins and crocodiles being fed by some of the most affectionate and courageous aquarium feeders. It's a delight from beginning to end.

When I was buying my ticket for the tour of the top at the Burge Khalifa, I upgraded to the combo ticket with the Dubai aquarium. The beginning of the aquarium visit starts with walking through the tunnel, will you get a really unique perspective...More

Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa,
the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city
and resides in the prestigious Downtown development.
Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in
Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure
area housing not only the world’s tallest building,
but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide
marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with
