These pictures are from the Dubai Aquarium and Atlantis. Both are relatively recent additions to the Middle-Eastern metropolis' tourist map. The Dubai Aquarium is located within the Dubai Mall near the Burj Khalifa. Meanwhile, Atlantis is located at the very tip of the artificial Palm Jumeriah island.
Both aquariums are magnificent in their own right. The Dubai Aquarium and Under Water Zoo features a main tank that towers 27+ feet over the mall interior. The tank is so large that they offer glass-bottom boat tours and SCUBA diving excursions. Hidden away from view, the aquarium also features an imposing Austrailian Crocodile named "King Croc."
The "Lost Chambers Aquarium" at Atlantis evokes the ruins of a long-lost civilization buried under the crystal clear waters of the Persian Gulf. The aquarium hosts over 65,000 fish and sea creatures, and the main tank visible throughout the resort holds over 3,000,000 gallons of saltwater.
