Dubai has two big Malls. The Mall of the Emirates has a ski-slope of all things (with real snow), and the Dubai Mall has a wee fish tank. First - the ski-slope.
This is the tank in the Dubai Mall. It has a few ‘biggests’; it’s the biggest shopping mall in the world, it is the biggest suspended fish thank in the world (whatever that is), and is next to the biggest (well, tallest) building in the world (more on that later).
You can walk through the tank in a glass tunnel for £5.
Mall directories don’t usually impress me, but this cool touch sensitive Star Trek like one did – it lays out a trail of how to get to your favourite gadget shops, etc.
I’ll end with some pictures of the Burj Dubai – the tallest building in the world. In front of it is a ‘Bellagio’ style fountain that performs for 5mins every half hour.
Hope you enjoyed the blog!
My final post on this blog, a long overdue link to the GPS trails we left as we travelled round China.
