One of the best places for kids as well as elders at the Dubai Mall! Although there is an option to view the Aquarium from outside at the Dubai Mall, but purchasing a ticket and going inside is a treat to the eyes when you watch the sea life nearby. I purchased this combo for my parents since they wanted to only visit the Penguin Cove and watch the Gentoo Penguins from a distance. After the Aquarium, they headed straight to the Penguin Cove which is a separate line from the Penguin Encounter and is located on the floor above the Aquarium. Don’t forget to collect your family photograph (a pricy affair in the whole of Dubai!) at the Aquarium along with the photo souvenir which costed us AED 220 together (discount of AED 80 when bought together). Next was the visit to the Underwater Zoo and the nocturnal species which you can quickly cover lazing around the place. At the end, you have an option to buy soft toys and then take an exit to the Dubai Mall. Overall, it was a 5/5 experience and I would like to thank Headout for arranging this combo so well. Disclaimer: Make sure you have your mobile data on to get the QR code scanned at each attraction in Dubai. The booking ID simply doesn’t work for anyone!

Loved the experience and recommend to buy your tickets with headout. Very convenient and their package is cheaper than buying at the store. Definitely will use headout again.
