Dubai Mall's Aquarium Tunnel in VR / 360!
Take a stroll inside Dubai Mall's iconic Aquarium Tunnel in this immersive 360-degree video
The Dubai Mall is not just a mall. It houses an indoor theme park, an ice skating rink, a 22-screen cinema and the world-class Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.
At the Dubai Aquarium, expect to see thousands of aquatic animals, comprising more than 140 species. No trip is complete without a stroll through Dubai's iconic Aquarium Tunnel. A walk through the 157-foot tunnel transports you to what feels like the depths of the ocean. You’ll glimpse giant groupers, schools of fish and all manner of rays and sharks.
Divers feed the sea life several times per day, and if you’re lucky enough to be there during a feeding, you’ll find yourself right in the middle of the action. At the Aquarium Tunnel, you’ll see far more underwater creatures than you would with a traditional scuba dive. And, you’ll never have to change into your swimsuit.
For best results, check out the 360 video below using the YouTube app and your Google Cardboard or Daydream headset.
