New family attraction: The Green Planet, Dubai

There is a new family destination in town! With high temperatures still going on in Dubai, you will be happy to explore this new indoor attraction with the children. It's the region first indoor tropical forest. The Green Planet at Citywalk is a fantastic recreational and educational bio-dome. We had a sneak peek this week before the grand opening on September 1st. Lucky us, we took a tour of the lush tropical forest featuring over 3,000 stunning plants and animals. We loved it!

A great intimate and unique sensory experience for the family. The Green Planet will take you on a journey into the very heart of a tropical forest, to give a glimpse of the inner workings of an ecosystem. From the ‘Flooded Forest’ for a first look of the extraordinary forest floor, complete with a giant aquarium filled with species such as arapaima, arowana and stingrays. Visitors are then guided to the top of the bio-dome where they are presented with a magical panoramic view of the largest indoor, man-made and life-sustaining tree in the world. As visitors slowly descend through the biome, via a winding path alongside its periphery, they will have unique encounters with exotic and tropical animals. From magestic South American toucans and crocodile lizards to pre-hensile tailed porcupines.

Horticulturist Rob Halpern added, “The Green Planet is an ecology museum, and we want visitors to both have a good time, see something beautiful, but also learn something important about nature, and the way nature works. There is a great deal of life, a great deal of diversity, and that’s why this ecology museum in Dubai centres on the tropical forest as it is to best tell the story of an ecosystem.”

Children will love exploring into the fascinating flora, exotic insects and animals while as parents we can underline the importance of nature preservation and raise awareness for the delicate balance of nature and the preciousness of our planet.
