If you are planning on going to the Palm from the mainland (or vice versa), the monorail is the quickest way of doing so. It's clean, efficient and the service is regular. The journey provides good, elevated views of the coastline and of the Atlantis hotel. You are also far more likely to get a seat than you are on... More

The monorail is way better than the metro in terms of the interior design.. However it is more expensive than the metro itself and it only goes back and forth on Palm Jumeirah.

Not that great of a view. Still okay for one time journey. Goes to the Atlantis hotel, nice area to walk around the shore once after reaching there.

The monorail trip is not expensive and it is a good way to see the palm area from above. Just be careful there is no taxi at the city end yet.

This must be the best way to see the Palm. You're high up and get a good view of the streets with their nice houses. If you sit at the front like we did, you'll love the added bonus of the feeling of being on a roller coaster ride. At times it seems as if you're hovering over the sea.... More

I lived in Dubai for 2 years and if you are a tourist and look at the monorail as a "scenic ride" then I am sure you will be happy, but otherwise it is a waste of time and money. Just grab a taxi if you actually want to be going somewhere

We, I and my husband were staying in Atlantis and we decided to take the monorail, up and down, just to enjoy the view! That was amazing in all senses! The monorail is comfortable and the view is wonderful!

this is without doubt one of the highlights to visiting Dubai, on the monorail you can see the palm fronds and the layout of the palm compared to just driving along the road to it. this is always the first stop that I take my visitors to, brilliant
