A nice way to see the palm fringe from another angle. Not very busy and easy to get around. We did a return trip.

We booked our stay in Dubai in an Hotel on the East side (right) of Palm Jumeirah. So this was an excellent different journey from our Hotel to the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall. Apart from the fact that it offers a wonderful view from above of the island, and the Atlantis hotel including Aquapark, we decided for an alternative... More

Although the 2 stations in between weren't open for operations yet, the last station was the only one ready. I needed that to easily go to Aquaventure waterpark and thanks to this monorail, I honestly think it's much more cheaper to take this than to hop on to the taxi from the entrance of the palm. I'd recommend everyone who's... More

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
