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

We really wanted to see the palm and the astonishing project. We choosed to use monorail to go to palm and back. Unfortunately monoral is partially build and has only two stations; entrance and Atlantic hotel. Also the entrance is in the middle of construction site. After arrival to monorail station ( they don't accept cards, only cash). We bought... More

It's a car park at one end and the Atlantis at the other. It's actually easier and cheaper to simply taxi. A good idea but poorly executed. I'm all for sustainability but I don't feel like this transport system works. A tourist may enjoy the higher views of the apartment blocks on the Palm.

The easiest way to get to The Palm Jumeirah, it`s pretty fast and gives opportunity of watching this luxury residential area. It plays every 30 minutes and is not crowded I suggest to sit on the front, the best place for taking photo.

While on the monorail, you can get a nice view of the palm form a slightly elevated spot. But thats the only good thing about this monorail. The building where you will need to board the Train from Dubai city looks hideous (in comparison with other buildings). there is nothing there. You will have to cross a big busy road... More
