In the evening, visit the largest shopping mall – the Dubai mall. The mall in itself is not much different than any other mall and if you are not interested in shopping then head straight to the aquarium.
Standard tickets cost AED 55 and allow access to both the aquarium and zoo. The Platinum Aquarium Package costs AED 80 and, in addition to admission to the aquarium and zoo, also includes the Behind the Scenes Tour.
I recommend starting off with the Aquarium which is a nice slow pace activity to do after the adrenaline rush of a skydive. You can buy tickets on the spot and spend an hour or two. They have an amazing collection of Sharks and Rays.
Okay so I never really fancied aquatic life but the “underwater thing” pulled me in and it was really a different experience
