At the Green Planet, you can discover an incredible indoor recreation of a tropical forest, right in the center of City Walk, one of Dubai's busiest districts. During this immersion in a unique environment, you will have the opportunity to see an amazingly rich flora and fauna, with more than 3,000 species of plants and animals. 
In this impressive Biodome, you will be able to visit a cave inhabited by bats, discover the most amazing species of the rainforest (boas, porcupines, toucans, insects, exotic fish...), and enjoy the colors and the song of the birds that live in freedom in this reconstituted jungle.

You will be amazed by the size of this place, so much so that you will soon forget that you are indoors. This indoor park includes the largest indoor tree in the world.

The Green Planet is a great place to visit with your family and learn about animals and plants. The Biodome is separated into four different areas, which represent the tropical jungle from bottom to top: the underwater part, the forest floor, the trees and the canopy.

In addition to simply visiting this eco-museum, there are many experiences waiting for you at the Green Planet:

  • Swim with piranhas with a mask and snorkel
  • Discover the nocturnal activities of the rainforest animals
  • Experience a tropical storm in the jungle
  • Go camping and spend a night in the tropical jungle
  • Become a zookeeper for a day


Dubai is often criticized for its excessive tourism and its lack of respect for the environment and for nature. Here, we are far from the huge air-conditioned shopping malls or the excessive luxury hotels. The Green Planet is a rea ecomuseum that aims to raise awareness of the beauties of nature and the importance of doing everything to preserve it.

A first trip to Dubai 8 years ago – and a first love. I created this blog about Dubai to share with you my good deals and my recommendations about visiting this emirate. Ever since my first trip, I try to go back to Dubai at least twice a year, alone or with family!
