Hi, my name's Marcy, and I'm your personal guide. Along with MyWoWo, I'd like to welcome you to one of the Wonders of the World: The Green Planet in Dubai.
The Green Planet is a genuine corner of tropical forest right in the heart of a country with a predominantly desert climate!
If you've already listened to some of the other files on Dubai, you'll probably have guessed that nothing here is impossible or ordinary, and The Green Planet is no exception.

The modern, elegant exterior of the building is composed of a load-bearing structure that appears to support the cylindrical plant nursery, from which all the necessary light filters through.
The landscape climbs up around a large tree in the center; as you make your way up, you'll have the chance to discover the different habitats that have been brought to life on the various levels.
