    The journey to Atlantis is already something long especially if you are coming just for the Aquarium (our kids are not too small for the water park). You can come with the monorail (a type of Metro of Palm), cost of 20 aed x person (children above 110 cm. Be counted as a person) or by taxi. The tickets cost 100 aed for di adults and 70 for children. The visit lasts just over an hour. It is super, architecturally interesting and the fish and their display are unique. From the large Windows of the Aquarium, there is seating/lounge areas (great idea). I found the information for the fish (Multilanguage) great our whole family but found it a bit too small... At this price and the long journey you expected something more... Otherwise a nice trip.

    Amazing place to visit. The collection of salt water fish is enormous. And we witnessed the live feeding of sting rays at 3:45 pm. New cushion mattresses are provided at the large viewing windows within is wonderful allows visitors to spend some time resting on it and taking in the views.

    For shopping freaks as well as for luxury fans, Dubai offers innumerable opportunities. As I love nature, the aquarium is always the best escape. The whole concept of Atlantis - the world lost in the sea - is perfect. It's convincing showing (artificial) artifacts, such as pieces of buildings, constructions, statues, etc., under-water with fish and other sea creatures moving around and through them. It's soothing, calming the mind and inspiring imagination. Visitors' interactions are interesting to observe. Immerse in the lost Atlantis, admire the sea life and relax; this is the mission of this lovely place.

    Very nice immersive yet educational experience. Be sure to download the Lost Chambers App which will walk you through the place and let you read about the species. Also if you are staying at the hotel try and watch the fish feeding at 10:15 AM. They intentionally do it close to the glass pane to give you a good view.

    Really nice aquarium and worth the visit after you've been to the water park next door. It really calms you down after a busy at the park

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.
