Aquaventure is simply amazing. The prices are very high and to go through every attraction in a day you need the fast pass which does cost a fortune but is worth it. Can recommend it to anyone who is willing to pay a very high price for an unforgettable experience.

The aquarium was too crowded and such a short tunnel for a long queue. The queue to burj Khalifa was extremely long but was worth the wait at the end of it. The view was amazing

Went to Burj and DAUZ immediately after landing. Both are must sees and this made it very easy to knock them out on our first day of a short trip.

Really fun thing to do inside. Low key and can enjoy at your own pace.

Had an awesome experience at the Dubai Aquarium and underwater zoo
