    I recommend to buy the vip ticket, leaves some 300 UAE that would be $90 out there, allows you to quickly enter everywhere and included the tour than there are. The Aquarium's is buggered that if all in English. Then you go to a place of virtual reality and you keep putting yourself for in aquariums and ponds. You are able to enter and feed them very nice also. Recommended hyper

    We saw the huge aquarium and became attracted to pay entry and enter. But really, it was the most spectacular what they saw from the outside without even having to pay admission. Once we got in there was, admittedly, see a variety of other fish and aquatic animals in smaller aquariums but if you are not particularly interested, it was nothing special. There is in this case better underwater zoo eg It in Barcelona.

    great experience. as most of the things in Dubai, aquarium is build to highest standard and it give you a top level experience. this place can been enjoyed by both adults and kids. As this is inside the Dubai Mall, it is very easy to get there. experience of seeing sea predators like shark close up is very interesting.

    Good looking from the outside however its not worth the money to buy a ticket to go into the tunnel. Also they will take a photo of you however you'll have to pay some other ridiculous price for that too. Overall very good buy quite expensive. Good for a one time go.

    Really amazing especially the tunnel with the sharks. Great place to being kids. I can't believe all this is a shopping mall (Ok a huge one, but still...)

    So it's huge! As you'd expect of course! And it's in the middle of the Mall! They seem to have added more "paid" options since I was last there (which we didn't do) though I noticed there are bunch of youngsters there to sell you discounted tickets! But for a trip to the Mall it's well worth swinging by to see the sharks!

    The aquarium is so huge, as you expect everything should be in Dubai. Had a great time here. One can spend hours here. A much visit place along with the kids.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
