The Dubai Mall features the world-class Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo featuring thousands of aquatic animals and a 270-degree walkthrough tunnel.

and enjoy the world’s largest dancing fountain. The Dubai Fountain features water that jets as high as 450 ft (140 metres), which is equivalent to a 45-storey building. Designed by California-based WET, the creators of the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas, The Dubai Fountain is 900 ft (275 metres) long, has five circles of varying sizes and two central arcs.
The Dubai Fountain performs daily, with a performance repertoire of approximately 35 songs, including Sama Dubai; Baba Yetu, an award-winning song in Swahili; classical songs from the Arab world; and the signature piece of world-renowned Andrea Bocelli, Con te Partiro (Time to Say Goodbye).
Set in Burj Lake, right outside The Dubai Mall on Lower Ground Waterfront Promenade in the heart of Downtown Dubai.
To top it off, set sail on the ultimate ride at The Dubai Fountain Lake Rides and enjoy front row seats to the world’s largest performing fountain. With the iconic Burj Khalifa as your backdrop, hop aboard a traditional Abra and enjoy the breathtaking sights and sounds.
BABYMOON® TRAVEL TIPS :
Due to the laws on sex outside marriage, if you become pregnant outside marriage, both you and your partner could face imprisonment and/or deportation. Doctors may ask for proof of marriage during ante-natal checks. An unmarried woman who gives birth in the UAE may also encounter problems when registering the birth of the child in the UAE and could be arrested, imprisoned or deported. To get a birth certificate from the UAE authorities, you must provide a marriage certificate and the authorities may compare the date of the marriage against the estimated date of conception. The UAE is in many respects a tolerant society and private life is respected, although there have been some reports of individuals being punished for sexual activity outside marriage, including homosexual activity, particularly where there is any public element, or the behaviour has caused offence. This applies both to expatriate residents and to tourists.
