Dubai – Dubai is opening a new theme park with a difference – it will be based entirely underwater.
The holiday hotspot wants to capitalise on the popularity of scuba-diving and snorkeling by opening the world’s largest underwater tourism site which will be called Pearl Of Dubai.
The five acre site, located in the shallow waters off The World Islands development, has been designed to look like an ancient lost city, by teams who were also involved in the Hollywood blockbusters Avatar and Pirates Of The Caribbean.
Guests of all ages will be able to explore the stunning scenes underneath the sea by scuba-diving or just admire from the surface by snorkeling.
It’s hoped the ambitious new project will help Dubai attract new guests from the global £1.8 billion ($3 billion) dive and snorkel market.
An opening date has yet to be announced.
