While traveling, a trip to the zoo is not only a fun activity but an education in local wildlife. The Emirates Park Zoo has created a wonderful home for their menagerie of animals. The first private zoo in the UAE, their space has over 600 animals and interactive exhibits to explore. Make sure you see the majestic pair of white tigers, Siberian bear, and the sea lion show. There's a park-wide ‘misting system’ that keeps animals and visitors cool. Entrance to the park is less than $10 a person.
