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

I enjoyed the views while riding the Jumeriah Monorail. The monorail was located near the Atlantis Hotel. They only accept cash no cards. You will not be able to see the palm shape of the island on this monorail. You are able to see beaches and the neighborhoods of Jumeriah. The monorail is a worthwhile ride.

As a public transport fan i had to take the Pulm Jumeirah monorail. The monorail is only reachable by taxi from the Internetcity metro station. Arrival at the monorail was very unattractive in a construction site. No business at all in the station. All possible shopspaces are empty, no advertisements. Tickets are 25 AED for a return journey. Only one... More

It's a means to get to the Atlantis Hotel. Why this is an attraction beats me? Have used the mono rail several times but only for the purpose of getting to Atlantis. It's a good way to see the Palm but it is a short ride and not really worth it if that's your aim. Take a taxi and ask... More
