How to see the aquarium with the world’s largest glass area in Dubai
Would you like to see a really large aquarium? Take a trip to Dubai Mall, which hosts an aquarium with the largest glass area, which shows an incredible scene.

The visible part of the aquarium is 32.9 meter long and 8.3 meter high; its actual size is 51 meters long, 20 meters wide, 11 meters high. The aquarium hosts over 33 thousands of fish and sea animals. A unique lighting system, which simulates alternation of day and night, is installed inside. A unique acryl glass, which holds all that water mass, has even made it to the Guinness World Records.

You will be able to get an eyeful and even take a picture on the background of Aquarium & Underwater Zoo dwellers, which also include such predators as skates and several shark species, all for free, just as all guests of Dubai Mall.

Would you like even more special something? Buy a ticket and take a trip to a huge 270-degree tunnel under the aquarium. Hundreds of sea animal species will drift above you literally at arm’s length. This picture is really fascinating.
