The 30-year-old made her way to the city's aquarium wearing a bright yellow top and green skirt that accentuated her famous behind.
And, ever the show woman, she pulled some silly poses as she observed the exotic fish swimming around in one of the many huge water tanks at the Atlantis The Palm Hotel.
Kim's outfit, seemingly inspired by Brazil's national colours, comprised a sleeveless yellow shirt, with a green skirt that clung to her every curve.

Kris, 55, went for an all-in-black ensemble with a silky shirt, tight-fitting trousers and heels.
The group then headed inside the Nobu restaurant.
She reportedly asked the waiter for a special Midori melon cocktail (Kim is a spokesperson for the brand) as she did a toast with her group at the table to kick off her first full day in Dubai.

And, though she has a huge following of her own, she was quick to compliment Dubai's female population.
She wrote: 'Seriously the woman in Dubai are sooo gorgeous!!! I'm sure @RobKardashian is so jealous he didn't come with me! WOW these woman are beautiful!'
While Kim has already respected the ritual of covering up her curves upon her arrival, it seems she will also have a chance to go the whole hog when it comes to embracing the country's culture.
