What does an aquarium remind you of? A mid or large-sized glass box filled with water that contains several species of small marine animals, doesn’t it?

The answer would be “yes,” for most. However, you would need to think differently when you are in Dubai.

Dubai. The city of dreams. The city of the future. The tourist hotspot of the world. And the city where the seemingly impossible is made possible.

The world’s tallest building. The world’s largest shopping mall. The world’s largest man-made island. These are just a few examples of the magical sights that welcome tourists to Dubai. And one such sight is the Dubai Mall Aquarium.

Tour Overview

This aquarium isn’t a small glass box filled with water, containing a few fishes.

Located in Dubai Mall – the largest shopping mall in the world – the Dubai Mall Aquarium is the biggest suspended aquarium in the world. It is located on the ground floor of the mall and rises up to the 3rd level.  And it is home to more than 30,000 species of marine life.

Yes, you heard that right. 30,000!

Forget about beauty. Forget about aesthetics. Forget about everything – except the enormity of the aquarium. And how the creators of this aquarium converted an impossible into possible.

Name a marine animal species – and you get to see it here. The key attractions here include giant crocodiles weighing over 700 kg, sharks, piranha, sea snakes, and other exotic variants. The aquarium also houses many species of marine insects, lizards, etc. And there are also penguins here for you to see! With over 10 million liters of water, the Dubai Mall Aquarium is mini-marine earth, capturing the jaw-dropping beauty and serenity of the marine ecosystem.
