Well connected with the Dubai Metro, the Monorail is a fast and efficient way to go around these localities.

If you have some spare time, this is an activity you could opt for. Specially when you are traveling with friends. Nice view of the palms during the day time.

The monorail is a must visit for anyone coming to Dubai. It offers great views of Marina and the Palm Jumairah. Gateway station offers plenty of parking spaces for commuters going to Altantis and aquaventure. Return ticket is priced at 25 AED. See attached image for time tables.

Been on the monorail twice during visits to Dubai.It is super-clean, efficient and gives you great views of the Palm.As it moves fairly slowly you can take great photos especially of the beautiful Atlantis hotel and on the return of the impressive Dubai skyline.

If you want to get a better view of the Palm then this is for you. The cost is 25 Dhs for a return journey, that's about £4.50, and it will take you less than half an hour there and back. Compared to all other forms of transport in Dubai, this is really expensive. Note that the Monorail does not... More

We simply selected to view Palm Jumeirah through this private monorail ride. We went to Atlantis Hotel (outside photo shoot area) via cab from Bur Dubai for 70 AED Then saw Atlantis Hotel & Aquaventure from outside. Later selected one way ride by Monorail for 15 AED pp. This in turn is connected to Tram and Metro so we went... More

The Palm Monorail is the most fast and convenient mode of transport to the the Atlantis hotel. The price is on the higher side and it becomes expensive if many people are travelling together.However the view obtained is extremely beautiful.

It is worth the trip but it is short and you do have to pay for it, your regular Metro fare card is not accepted. The trains do not run very frequently either, but its not a very long wait.
