Went several times to Dubai Aquarium with family and guests from our native country. Every time it was as fresh as first time visiting. You are very close to under water nature. It is worth to visit there and I would say your Dubai tour is incomplete without it.

A placed loved by my 1 year old son. Located on the ground floor and on the 3rd floor of the biggest mall of Dubai, the Dubai Mall, it is a nice place to spend an hour. Though it looks very big in size from the outside, actually it is small when you reach inside. But Excellent maintenance is done by the staff. The kind of aquatic species they have their is excellent in the aquarium. In the underwater zoo also there is a lot to see. Overall a pity nice experience.
