The second largest and most loved water park in Dubai, Aquaventure WaterWorld, belongs to the Atlantis Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. This water park itself is an attraction with a special atmosphere of a water adventure: there is something to ride, what to see and what to be delighted with.

In the water park, you can test your courage next to live sharks, fly into the pool at the speed of a car, overcome water obstacles and rapids, enjoy double slides.

The water park offers many water adventures for the whole family. Everyone can use the water park. A ticket to the water park at the box office of the water park – 320AED for adults, 275 AED – for children below 120cm Dream Land Water Park is located outside Dubai. We even thought about whether to include it in the rating of Dubai attractions, because the water park was built on the territory of the emirate of Umm Al Quwain.

Dream Land is really the best water park for families with kids and is loved by everyone who is vacationing in Dubai with children. This is a huge water park with water adventures, a green shady recreation area, a children’s amusement park, and a magical mini zoo.

Each animal in the mini-zoo “Mini Pet Land” can be picked up and photographed. The entrance fee to the water park is 160AED for adults, 100AED – for children, kids under 2 years old are free.

The park covers an area of ​​two Vatican cities – about 1.2 km2. Dubai Safari Zoo consists of several natural areas – Asian Village, African Village, Open Safari Village, a children’s park, and a huge lake valley with a waterfall, streams, fish, and bridges. Each of them is built in its own unique style.

It will take 7-8 hours to see the entire zoo. You can move around the territory of the new Dubai landmark by electric vehicles. The zoo will have about 2,500 animals and birds.

Dubai Opera

The Dubai Opera is not a simple tourist attraction. Emirates swung at European culture. The grand opening of the Dubai Opera on August 31, 2016, was broadcast on all world channels.

The Opera building was designed by the Dutch architect Janus Rockstock in the style of the Arab sailing boat dhow. The opera is located near the Burj Khalifa with a facade directly to the world-famous dancing fountains of Dubai. 

The legendary Placido Domingo consecrated the opening of the Opera with his performance.

Tours of world stars, the best productions, the loudest premieres – the Dubai Opera collects the cream of society. Sydney nervously smokes on the sidelines. We recommend booking tickets for the Opera in advance, and for premieres – right in advance.
