Taking the monorail is a good way of seeing Hotel Atlantis from a good view. The problem with the monorail is that it starts 400 meters from the nearest tram station and costs 15 AED for a single fare ticket. it is in most cases cheaper to take a taxi. We took a taxi to Atlantis and returned by Monorail.... More

Very clean and comfortable train to discover the city. The helpful hostesses at the main entrance of the Dubai tram. The chance you have to recharge the ticket already used once, instead of throwing away the ticket, this i found really practice. At a really cheap price!The best way to see the city from "high".

The ride with it is excellent, but the price is as high as the pillars of the track. Unfortunately you cannot use the NOL card for this and the walk through the park deck to change between tram (public, NOL card can be used) and monorail gives you not a welcoming impression.

I quite enjoyed the short trip to the Atlantis hotel on the Palm Jumeirah but found it quite an expensive option for what it was. The views from the train were spoiled by the vast amount of construction work that is still going on but the final part of the journey, nearing the Atlantis, was stunning.

This monorail costs AED15 per head for one way and AED25 for return. This is in no connection with the normal RTA or Nol card. You need to pay here separately. From the Atlantis station to the gateway station you can go back form the palms. The advantage is that you can see the palm developments from a height and... More

We travelled one way on this to Atlantis Palm. As up high get a very good view of the Palms construction. We just missed a train and had just over 20 minute wait for the next one. We sat on the left side of the train and got a good view of the Atlantis as we approached.

One catches the monorail to connect with the Dubai tram to head down to Dubai Marina hotels or if you where going from the trunk of the palm to Atlantis. Do note there is part of the footbridge to and from the monorail to the tram that isn’t air-conditioned, so when you cross it during summer, be prepared for a... More

Good place to overview the Palm Jumeirah. If you drive through Palm jumeirah till Atlantis, You cant really feel the creativity of the Island. Try to get the return ticket from Atlantis till Palm Jumeirah Station. Get down at Palm Jumeirah Station and you can walk till Tram station. Have a round trip on tram to enjoy marina's view. Use...
