The Green Planet, a new indoor attraction in Dubai, brings a rainforest to the Arabian Desert.
The attraction, which opened in early September, functions as a real ecosystem and boasts over 3,000 species of plants, insects, and animals, according to The National. Its centerpiece is an artificial tree – the largest of its kind in the world – that creates a living environment in which the animals and plants can thrive.
The indoor rainforest is located at a retail complex called City Walk, and tickets cost $25 for adults and $19 for children. Take a look inside.
The Green Planet is located inside a 150-foot-tall glass building.
In the middle of the indoor forest is an 82-foo-tall tree with an artificial trunk.
The humidity is set at 70% higher than normal levels, and temperatures stay between 77°F and 82°F.

To get to the tree, visitors need to cross a rope bridge from an outer platform.
Many kinds of animals live in the indoor rainforest, including South American toucans …
… three-toed sloths …
