I'm not sure what everyone saw - but aside from the monorail, lots of hotels, lots of construction and traffic what exactly was there to be seen on this palm island. The sidewalk was built so that you could stand across the street and take...More

Something you cannot find somewhere else, so get there to spend a while or book some airborne tour for the best experience.

Leaving Jumeirah beach, I quickly moved to the monorail train to go straight to Palm island. The island was shaped like a palm tree. It was a really luxury place for rich people . From the monorail train, I could see Ferrari, many of them....More

Going to the Palm Islands to marvel at the engineering is definitely worth a visit. I would suggest renting a car/driver for a few hours one day and have the driver drop you off so that you can take the monorail from the start of...More

I can think about Observatory Bar top floor which can provide you a beautiful view of Palm. Enjoy the experience :)))

You can reach a station near the palm and then take the monorail to Atlantis Hotel, but it is much easier and better to take a cream colored cab. They are inexpensive. Do not use any other cabs, or vans. They call the... More

Palm Islands in Dubai (3 Replies)
We are planning to spend 2 days in Dubai. We want to hire a tour guide for a private tour on one day and have free time on the second day. We want to identify places that we want to visit ourselves and others where we need a guide. Palm Islands are three artificial islands, Palm Jumeirah, Deira Island and Palm Jebel Ali => which one shall we visit AND WOULD IT BE MORE EFFICIENT TO HAVE A GUIDE THERE? Thanks for the input!

Work on the Jebel Ali Palm stopped in 2008 and isn’t likely to start again any time soon, if at all!
Turtle Island in South Lebanon? (2 Replies)
Hey I've heard rumors that there is an island around the south thats famous for masses of Sea Turtles nesting there. Does anyone know about this, could anyone direct me on how to go there and when to see the turtles? I've also heard that lots of sea turtles nest at the Palm Islands Heritage Site around Tripoli, does anyone know if I can see the turtles nesting there? Thanks

Hi, Sea turtles nest at the Tyre Nature Sea Reserve not far from the Rest House hotel and Tyros restaurant. They also nest at the Palm Island Heritage Site just around half an hour by boat off Tripoli coast, visiting those group of island is only allowed between June and September. Regards

Hello :) My family and I will be in Dubai in June this year (staying two nights).

I would very much appreciate it if I could get some advice regarding how much time we should leave aside for each location, and whether the following plan I have made will work or be too much...More

In my view 2 days is just not enough time to do Dubai and Abu Dhabi - it is at least 90 minutes there and 90 minutes back through some very boring flat desert scenery and that is 3 hours when you could have been doing something else. You can tour Jumeirah Mosque in Dubai at 10am every day except Friday and whilst it is not as spectacular as Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, it won't waste as much of your time. When you describe your hotel as 'Jumeirah location' can you be a bit...More
