My uncle who arrived from Dubai some days back had told me about this mall.

Especially about the Aquarium.

Looks like the builders there want to give an Underwater experience to the visitors.
There is a similar Aquarium in one of the restaurants in Burj-Al-Arab?

Yup SRK the pictures from the tunnel would give you the underwater experience as it sourrounds you from all sides..just like the aquarium at Singapore..Its amazing how they manage to come up with these things. Where else can you stand a foot away from a shark in a desert? LOL!

Right at the bottom of Burj Dubai, the tallest structure in the world today.

As with all other wonderful developments in Dubai, they have thoughtfully provided only one entrance/exit to this extra-large development to ensure that traffic gets even worse than before.

For those not in the know, Dubai has the fetish for creating large residential/commercial developments spread over a few square kms and meant to host a few hundred thousand people - all these developments have ONE common signature: ONE entrance and ONE exit for all those hundreds of thousands.

Nice pics nitroxx. I am yet to see the Dubai Mall. Guess I shall wait for sometime for the initial rush to reduce.

That Supra which you posted is in the Greens right? Was a depressing sight to see the car standing there for months together. It finally disappeared a few weeks back. Hopfully up and running now.
