Today was the final day of the GITEX Exhibition. Right after the exhibition, we took some group photographs at the booth before it was set down by the logistics company.

The exhibition finished earlier than other days today i.e. at 5pm local time. Hence, I headed back to the hotel, placed my bags and refreshed quickly. I had all my mind set to visit the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo which is in Dubai Mall. We did not visit this place the other day as the others were not too keen on this so I kept this for the last night in Dubai, i.e. today. I was thinking if I should take a cab or take the train. The cab would cost me RM 50 but the train should be much lesser than that. So I decided on taking the train. Walked to the train station and got the train heading to Dubai Mall Station. The train does not stop near the Mall. We would have to walk out of the station and get another feeder bus which cost RM 7 one way to go to the Mall. From the feeder bus station, I could see the Burj Khalifa clearly except that the day was very hazy. Esle, this would have been the best spot for a good photograph. In the bus, they basicly had a divider whereby all women had to be in the first half of the coach and the guys on the second half of the coach.

Once I alighted at the bus halt, I went towards the Dubai Aquarium. They had few types of tickets for sale. I bought the single entry pass for both the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo which cost me RM 90. This place was magnificent, no other words to describe. I have been to the underwaterworld in Singapore, in Kuala Lumpur, in Langkawi and few other places, but this was the best and it is the largest in the world. Worth the ticket price and it took me almost 4 hours walking around this place.

Finally, after spending four solid hours here, I went out to the Food Court at the other end of the mall to get my dinner. Thursday nights are the happening nights here and all malls close only at midnight.

After dinner, being satisfied, headed back to the hotel. Finally, I have seen all places that there is to see here in Dubai.

I agree with the previous commenter. The photographs are simply marvelous. I observed that in some pictures, you had played with various aperture settings. Good work! Cheers Venoth
