Visitor Adventures: The Atlantis at the Palm

From the historical Cultural Centre to the sparkle of the Atlantis hotel on the Palm Jumeirah pretty much sums up the dichotomy that is Dubai. One minute we're taking pictures of traditional village housing and the next, we're inside one of the largest and most decadent hotels in the world. And to think, all this in only 40 years!

We visited the Atlantis just to take a look around (God knows we can't afford to eat there, let alone stay there for a night!) One of the attractions is a large aquarium which is built on the theme of the animated kid's movie, Atlantis (Disney? can't remember). Anyway, we had a coupon so decided to check it out. Photos below are of the hotel itself and our walk through the aquarium.
