Today is Saturday. Thousands of people are shopping in the mall, but there aren’t only shops and restaurants at the Dubai Mall. Some people are watching the fish in the giant Underwater Zoo. There are more than 33.000 fish and marine animals there, including sharks. Other people are skating on an Olympic-sized ice rink. Outside the mall the temperature is 45 degrees in summer, but inside the rink it’s a cool 1 degree. 

The mall has even got its own theme park, the Sega Republic, with 150 games and rides inside. And that’s not all. At the entrance you can see Dubai’s Dancing Fountain. It’s 152 metres high! At night there’s an amazing light show, and on a clear night it’s visible from space!
