1. Dubai aquarium


The Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is one of the city's most popular attractions. Located in the Dubai Mall, the world's largest shopping mall, this attraction provides a thrilling voyage into the world of the sea. Dubai Aquarium is one of the world's largest indoor aquariums, with a capacity of 10 million litres of water. It illuminates the wonders of the ocean floor, showcasing one of the most diverse collections of aquatic life. The Underwater Zoo, located immediately above the aquarium, allows guests to get up close and personal with penguins, piranhas, crabs, water rats, sea horses, jellyfish, and more. The King Croc, recognized as nature's uncommon phenomena and one of the world's largest, is an intriguing new addition to Underwater Zoo.


 2. China glass bridge


The Zhangjiajie Glass Footpath is a skywalk bridge above the Wulingyuan region in Zhangjiajie, Hunan. The bridge, which was designed as a tourist attraction, has a glass bottom and is transparent. When it first opened, it was the world's longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge.


3. Aburi botanical gardens

Aburi is a town in Ghana's Akwapim-Togo Range. Accra, Ghana's capital, is only a three-quarter-hour drive away. Aburi's chilly highland temperature makes it a popular location for those who enjoy the cool side of life. The Aburi Botanical Gardens are located in this cool, peaceful location. The garden encompasses a total land area of around 160 acres. Only three (3) acres have been developed, with the remainder being used as a botanical reserve.


In 1842, the House of Commons in London recommended that a garden be constructed on the Aburi mountains. But, despite their best efforts, this first attempt failed miserably. Another attempt to establish the garden in 1865 failed, perhaps because the powers that be at the time did not see the necessity for such spending to create a garden so far away from home, or because there was a general lack of enthusiasm. However, after a third attempt in March 1890, the plan was accepted, and a garden was established in Aburi. It's unclear why Aburi was chosen over sites like Amedzofe, which had similar colder weather but was captured by the Germans.Could it be that they picked Aburi over the other hilly locations of the Gold Coast because the British sanatorium was already there? Plausibly! This is because, prior to 1890, the Gold Coast government built a sanatorium on the location in 1875 for recovering government officers. The British colonial masters used this location as a vacation getaway later on.
