A real tourist trap in an amazing Mall. It's pricey, but an amazing experience whether adults or for the kids. It's a experience that residents go back time again!

Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa,
the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city

Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in
Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure
area housing not only the world’s tallest building,
but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide
marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with

In my opinion no. The average time to visit the Aquarium Tunnel is approximately 15 to 30 minutes. Underwater Zoo located on Level 2 takes approximately 45mins – 1.5 hours.
