Feed some real hungry critters at the Dubai Aquarium: Okay, to be fair it’s the divers that do the feeding. But would you really want to go into the water and hand-feed a pack of hungry sharks? Thankfully, the experts are on hand in their special chainmail suits, so no digits get digested in the process. In the meantime, though, you can get yourselves into a prime position by watching feeding time in the aquarium tunnel.
Dhs50 per person for a tunnel pass, including a ticket to the Underwater Zoo. Daily 4pm. Dubai Aquarium, The Dubai Mall, www.dubaiaquarium.com.
