Dubai – you would have thought about uber-luxury, desert safari, very high temperatures, endless fun, and shopping. But, can you imagine a tropical rainforest in Dubai? On second thoughts – if Dubai can have a Miracle Garden, Ski World in the desert – then a rainforest – why not?

Today in this blog – the focus is on the Green Planet in Dubai! It is an indoor rainforest set up; right in the heart of the desert! You could say that it is an indoor paradise focusing on sustainability, nature, and biodiversity. It is based on the unique and innovative concept of the Bio-Dome. Tourists can get close and personal with nature in this desert land. A visit to the Green Planet Dubai with our Dubai tour packages will teleport you to the Amazon!!

Highlights of the Green Planet in Dubai

The model of the Green Planet

One of the fascinating things about the Indoor rainforest is the Green Planet complex itself. Its green canopy is home to around 3000 creatures and plants. One of the attractions of this place is a massive 25-meter artificial tree that serves as the centerpiece and a symbol for a tree that sustains life.

There are four levels to the Bio-Dome of the Green Planet in Dubai. The four levels are categorized as the Canopy, the Forest Floor, the Flooded Rain Forest, and the Midstory. Each of these levels explains the value of rainforest and its place in the natural world. All animals at the Green Planet are imported from private breeders and zoos. For the park, none of the animals were ever captured in the wild. Every animal has its own open space to walk around freely inside the facility. The vast array of flora at the Green Planet is selected so that they live peacefully with one another. It is a refreshing approach to the Middle Eastern ecosystem. The superb service and interactive digital displays work to provide a distinctive educational experience.
