Magnificent view from the top. I especially liked the viewing scopes (free) which not only gives you a magnified view of the area it is directed at ( with the important buildings tagged), but options of a night view, day view, and also an older view taken several years ago i.e when the area was just mainly bare desert. As we did not have a prior booking and the waiting list was full for the next few days, we had no choice but to pay the 400aed fee per person to get immediate access. Thank goodness the day was clear with no fog, so the view was excellent. And to make our money's worth we spent about 2 hours there to appresciate the night view as well, and managed to catch the fountain show from above - which was spectacular!
