A dose of virtual reality or a massive aquarium and underwater zoo filled with creatures from the deep blue sea? Both are activities that make for a brilliant family staycation, especially when you can do them completely for free. Those looking to experience some of the Downtown Dubai’s best features can book a stay at Address Downtown, Address Dubai Mall or Address Boulevard and get free access for two people to The Dubai Mall’s Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, as well as two Super 7 passes to VR Park. All three hotels are five-star resorts and placed right in the heart of Dubai,
so you won’t be far from the two star attractions.
