Great place to escape from Dubai’s heat

There are more than 70+ shopping malls and arcades in Dubai alone. With The Dubai Mall crowned with the world largest mall make it a ‘must see’ tourist spot in Dubai.

Besides few other indoor attraction (fee based) such as Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, At the Top Burj Khalifa, Ice Rink etc, the music fountain showcase draw huge crowd every evening (because it is free and nice to watch).

Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo

Being the largest shopping center in the world, Dubai Mall needs some mind boggling projects such as skiing slope and giant water tank in a desert country.

Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo (4)

The aquarium if a great alternative option other than shopping in Dubai Mall.

Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo (6)

Most of the specimens and species are similar to other major aquariums, but Dubai Aquarium has Guinness World Record under its belt (2010) for having the largest Acrylic panel which holds 10 million litres of water. My camera lens couldn’t capture the entire wall panel. Standing on 2nd floor (see the guy in shadow), that gives you a better perspective how big is this aquarium tank.

One of the good place to visit is Dubai Creek to meet the local and to witness daily walk of life at Dubai.

Of course, if you are visiting the museum and shops, some of the locals are role playing to demonstrate to the visitors the way of life in the past.
