 Kim Kardashian lights up the aquarium on working holiday in DubaiSplash

Kim Kardashian's curvy rear is almost as famous as the reality TV star herself - and she couldn't help showing it off for her holiday snaps album on a trip to Dubai with her mum Kris.

Kim, head-turning in a brightly-coloured pencil skirt and blouse combo, posed for some tourist pics, taken by make-up artist Joyce, at Dubai's amazing aquarium.

It is one of the largest tanks in the world at 51m x 20m x 11m and boasts the world's largest viewing panel at 32.8m wide and 8.3m high.

It has has more than 33,000 living animals, and represents more than 85 species, including over 400 sharks and rays combined.

Kim was accompanied by her manager mum Kris, who is supporting her daughter while she launches Dubai's new Millions of Milkshakes store.

Kim has been staying at the Atlantis The Palm Hotel, which is a shrine to glitz and glamour, and so makes the perfect spot for Ms Kardashian's Dubai digs.

Kim Kardashian lights up the aquarium on working holiday in Dubai

A simple eight hour flight from Heathrow (or Manchester) and you arrive in a whole new world.

There are bejewelled fishy murals everywhere you look, there is gold, there is some more gold and there is a gold bullion vending machine. Leave the puritan in you at home.

Jaw-dropping opulence. Chic and understated, Dubai is not.

Installed in the main lobby of The Atlantis is a huge glass installation by US artist Dale Chihuly, you’ll walk past it every day, and it will still take your breath away.

If you wondering what could possibly be inside the huge archway that separates the two towers of Atlantis, then yes it’s one suite.

The Bridge Suite is the most luxurious of them all with wall-to-ceiling views of Palm Jumeirah, huge sun terraces and more opulence than you can imagine.

If you’re lucky enough to stay here you’ll have your own butler, a designated chef and hand soap made with real gold leaf.

For families. Your kids will be in raptures at the site of the 11 million litre aquarium (complete with sharks, massive sting rays and the odd diver).

There is a Kids Club and a Teen Zone (where parents are strongly forbidden to enter), and then the waterpark, the famous waterpark...

Aquaventure is the Middle East’s largest waterpark and is set into a backdrop of 42 tropical acres.

If you think you’re one of those people who “don’t do waterparks”, then you’ve got a surprise in store.

Whilst everyone else is charging about on water rollercoaster’s that weave in and out of the landscape and through tunnels of fish, or riding waves that reach swells of a metre high, or even plunging 27 metres in a near vertical drop, you could be lazing along in a rubber ring watching the world go by. Or, you could just go out there, and get involved!

You’ve got to swim with dolphins.  It’s everyone’s childhood wish come true right?

At Dolphin Bay you are led into the water and taught about these amazing creatures, next minute you’re having a hug, then an actual kiss.

If you want to take this holiday romance one step further, then you can swim into the deep waters of the lagoon and get taken for a ride.

Because this is Dubai, every taste is catered for. Pick a mood and there is a restaurant to suit it.

Ronda Locatelli is Michelin star chef Giorgio Locatelli’s rustic little Italian place; there is the award winning Seafire steakhouse (TimeOut Dubai  Restaurant Award 2011 ‘Best Steakhouse’) where the meat is imported from Australia on a daily basis, and Nasimi Beach where you can hang out in private cabanas and be served seafood platters and cocktails as you lounge in the sun.

If you’re really going to do it in style, then you should treat yourself at the gastronomic orgy that is Nobu.

The miso black cod is what everyone talks about (so obviously you’ll have to try that), the yellow tail tuna sashimi with jalapeño will knock your socks off (so dress smart), and the Kobe beef is so delicate that whenever you eat steak again, you’ll feel sad.

There is also a famous Nobu cheesecake that will transform your idea of what a cheesecake should be.
