  • Free leisure 2:00, visited the Aquarium and marine Museum, because the hotel was in walking distance. The Aquarium was dedicated to the local inhabitants of the sea. At the end of the road opens a big reservoir with stingrays, large fish and aquatic turtle. There is a souvenir shop, a café, the street children's playground and restaurant. When buying a ticket to the Aquarium (25 dirhams), visit the Maritime Museum for free.

  • Went to this Aquarium because in one place have the opportunity to visit two sites: opposite the Museum of shipbuilding. An interesting Aquarium, probably suitable for visiting with children, but after the aquarium at the Dubai Mall is not very impressive).
