Dubai is known for its tourist attractions especially when it comes to luxury hotels.

The aquarium is equipped with a lighting system that cyclic changes the hue depending on the time of day. To learn more about the marine world you can immerse yourself in the aquatic zoo and go through the tunnel inside where it really has the feeling of being on the bottom in the company of fish of all kinds. The novelty of 2013 is the Paradise Island, the tropical underwater zoo where you can see the new species of fish and animals arriving from the warm seas around the world. You can visit the new area until February 5 and you can enter the contest and win a stay of three nights for four people in the Maldives.
