It has an Award-Winning Architecture

In a city where the temperature could go as high as 50-degree Celsius, The Green Planet Dubai keeps it cool with adequate sunlight for the ecosystem to exist and flourish. It is an engineering marvel and an award-winning park for kids’ edutainment. It offers a breathtaking visual where the wildlife roams against the picturesque waterfall.

How many Zones does The Green Planet have?

The bio-dome of The Green Planet is made up of four levels: the Canopy, the Midstory, the Forest Floor and the Flooded Rainforest. Each level has a unique characteristic and tells its importance in the rainforest. In the centre is the 82-foot tall man-made tree wrapped with vines and figs — that creates a thriving environment for a range of animals, right from snakes and sloths to geckos lizards, bugs and toucans.

You will be glad to know that none of the animals here are caught from the wild; they have been mostly shifted from Zoos and private breeders.

You can snow ski as well as feel the thunder in Dubai— isn’t this already an exhilarating tour? It’s once in a blue moon that you get caught in the rains of Dubai.
