In April 2015 I went on a trip to the UAE, Cambodia and Thailand. Although I will throw up some photos of my time in Dubai, I thought I’d quickly chuck in a few photos of our visit to the Dubai Aquarium.
It was quite enjoyable, more so because I have an aquarium at home and have always enjoyed the hobby. The main attraction of the aquarium is that huge tank which you can view from inside the Dubai Mall for free. But to walk through the tunnel you have to pay, of course. And in Dubai everything is expensive once you get started. And of course King Croc, who is the 5+ metre 750 kg saltwater croc. He is impressive, no doubt. But I still feel sorry for such a magnificent creature to be holed up like that.
Just as a tip, if you take those bus tours (the red route, blue route etc.) you get free entry into the Dubai Aquarium, so that will save you some bucks. We didn’t go that route, so be smarter than us. The mall itself is the largest in the world. It attracts more visitors than New York City! (source: Wikipedia)
And below some pics, till later.
The aquarium used to be higher, but the glass broke a while back, causing major havoc.
Go big or go home
