18 January, 2016
Dubai-based Meraas on Monday announced the launch of The Green Planet, the region’s first bio-dome that recreates the world of a tropical forest with its rich biodiversity of over 3,000 plants and animals. The enclosed ecosystem, located at Dubai’s City Walk, will offer visitors an immersive expedition into the tropics, the company said in a statement. The building also includes a giant 25-metre tree, which is the largest indoor man-made and life-sustaining tree in the world. Scheduled to open in the first half of 2016, within The Green Planet, a green canopy will cover the lush tropical vegetation, recreating the natural habitat of an abundance of species and giving visitors glimpses into the beauty of another world.
