Bahrain is set to open the world’s largest underwater theme park with a submerged Boeing 747 aircraft.

The 70-meter long plane sunk and transformed into an artificial reef will be one of the several attractions for divers and tourists from all parts of the world.

The eco-friendly park stretches 100,000 square meters in Diyar Al Muharraq which has seven artificial islands. It will be open for the public in August.
