Dubai – the world’s tallest tower with an exaggerated city, in many respects, Dubai Is now Deep pool Of the planet. A true “sunken city” for divers to explore, the new attraction begins as the Gulf Emirate seeks to attract new tourists amidst epidemics.
With its doors open to international visitors since July 2020, the city is showcasing new skyscrapers and new man-made islands.
“This is a 60 meter deep pool, 15 meters higher and twice as large as any other pool in the world,” said Jarot Japlonski, director of Deep Dive Dubai, which manages the project.
The director explained that the pool, which opened to the public on Wednesday and is themed in the submerged city, has a volume of water equivalent to six Olympic swimming pools, or 14.6 million liters. Guinness Academy confirmed the new record for the company France Press.
Against the backdrop of lights and music, Gravity has two underwater habitats. Divers can explore the depths of the rebuilt lost city, filled with everyday objects and covered in lush vegetation.
“We wanted to remember the diving tradition in the Emirates and pearl fishing, so the oyster shape of the outdoor structure,” explained an American citizen director. An hour session costs between 500 and 1,500 dirhams (approximately US $ 140 – $ 400).
In 2019, more than 16 million tourists visited Dubai. But the epidemic, like many other countries, has dealt a major blow to the tourism industry.
Dubai spent billions of dollars to organize the 2020 Universal Exhibition and was counting on the event to attract 25 million tourists. Planned to launch in October, the international exhibition had to be postponed, and the United States now hopes to fill the audience with a resumption of the event next October.
For seven months, Dubai has been accumulating one of the fastest vaccination campaigns against the corona virus in the world. As of June, the most populous of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, Dubai vaccinated about two-thirds of the population eligible for the vaccine campaign against Govt-19 in two doses.
With the coronavir vaccine developed by China’s National Pharmaceutical Group (Synopharm), the Emirates’ population began to be largely immunized. Later, vaccines were purchased from Pfizer / Bioendech, Oxford / Astrogeneca and later Russia-made Sputnik V./ AFP and REUTERS
