About
The UAE’s latest cultural landmark, Dubai Frame is an iconic structure that ‘frames’ impressive views of Old and New Dubai, while serving as a metaphorical bridge connecting the emirate’s rich past with its magnificent present. Dubai Frame celebrates the story of Dubai from its early establishment to its ambitious plans for future development. Launched in January 2018, the project comprises a 150-metre-high, 95-meter-wide structure being built to resemble a huge picture frame, through which landmarks representing modern Dubai such as Emirates Towers and Burj Khalifa can be seen on one side, while from the other side, visitors can view older parts of the city such as Deira and Karama. Exterior design of Dubai Frame was inspired from the logo of EXPO2020 and it is world's largest picture frame by Guinness World Records. According to Dubai Frame general policy, guests are requested to wear respectful clothing: shoulders and knees to be covered.

    Dubai Frame
    Its a unique structure probably in the world, brilliantly built in a strategic position to separate new and old Dubai, the views were amazing. If you visit just before sunset, you get an excellent view of day and night lights and off course the magnificent sunset view. Tickets are easy to book from Headout and quite reasonably priced.

    Wow factor!
    The views are spectacular and the glass floor weird and wonderful! ! Now the downside.. the organisation in the mornings when I suspect they are busy is pretty lacking! Long queue with NO shade!! 2 lifts on each side take 15 people roughly and this is excruciating going up and unbearable going down!! There should have a little water and drink kiosks outside.. I should think some customers would have had health issues with this lack of fluids! Up at the top 2 extortionately priced kiosks for warm (!) water and coffee and some poor overworked solo member of staff at the till! Management need to address these issues! Interesting and reasonably priced for Dubai!

    Well worth a visit
    Less expensive than visiting the big name towers. A fun experience, good views including glass floor! We had to queue for about 40 minutes, part of which was outside in the sun which may not be much fun in hotter months!
    Dear Luxtraveller88, Greetings from Dubai Frame and many thanks for this review. Your opinion is valuable and we appreciate your post at this portal. Yours faithfully, Dubai Frame Team

    Dubai Frame: The Only Time You'll Want to Be Framed!
    The Dubai Frame is one of the most unique and interesting attractions in the city, offering visitors a chance to see the old and new sides of Dubai in one fell swoop. But let's be real – the real reason to visit the Dubai Frame is so you can snap that perfect Instagram shot and show all your friends how cool you are. And let me tell you, this place does not disappoint when it comes to photo ops. From the gold-plated elevator to the glass floor bridge to the stunning views of the city from the top, every inch of the Dubai Frame is a photographer's dream come true. But be warned – this place is not for the faint of heart. If you're afraid of heights, the glass floor bridge might send you running for the hills (or in this case, the desert). And if you're prone to motion sickness, the elevator ride to the top might leave you feeling a bit queasy. But if you can stomach it (literally), the Dubai Frame is worth a visit. Not only will you get some great photos, but you'll also learn about the history and culture of Dubai in the process. And who knows – you might even convince your friends that you're cultured and well-traveled (even if you only came to Dubai for the 'gram). So go ahead and get yourself framed at the Dubai Frame – just make sure you're wearing your best outfit, because this place is all about the photo ops!

    Amazing architecture.
    Worth a visit if you have time. Too many crowds though and too long a queue to get in. Took us almost an hour in the queue but we were on top for like 40mins. Good views from the glass floors.
    Dear guest, Many thanks for your kind feedback, your time and efforts are very much appreciated and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon at our premises. We frankly hope that you will recommend Dubai Frame to all your friends and family members. Looking forward to welcoming them all here at Dubai Frame. Sincerely, Dubai Frame Team

    A interesting experience if you are passionate of unusual structures
    It's only when you stand underneath this frame that you really understand what it's all about. Probably one of the most interesting structures ever made since you keep wondering how that horizontal top part of the structure can hold itself. Once you go up, there are some glass floors that make you feel dizzy if you're afraid of heights. The entrance fee has a relatively fair price. An interesting experience.

    Couple Hour Visit
    Book your ticket in advance so you don’t have to wait in line and note that you gain free access to Zabeel Park afterwards if you start with the frame. Plenty of parking on site though you must pay for it (pay into the machine once you are ready to leave). Hours change during Ramadan (opens later). Total time needed at the top is perhaps 30-45 minutes and then another 15 minutes at the base that further explains the frame.

    The worth place to visit
    One of the most iconic buildings in Dubai. Once you visit it will provide you with a detailed history of the UAE. On one side of the Frame, you see old Dubai, and on the other side is the future of Dubai. An interesting attraction must visit if you are traveling for the first time.

    Cool experience and worth doing
    Cool experience. We arrived around 11am just as a slight queue was beginning to form. We spent about an hour here in total - got some great photos. The clear platform to walk on was fun. As we were leaving queues we starting to get much bigger. God value for the money.

Definitely worth visiting, amazing views! Just around AED60 and fab views on lift ride up and very informative too, take lots of photos but pricey snacks so take your own drinks/snacks if needed. Great visual displays and a fab museum display downstairs too, glad we went!

The view from the top of Dubai Frame was extremely beautiful from both sides. On one side we were able to have a panoramic view of "Old" Dubai and on the other side modern Dubai. There was also a glass walk which allowed us to see the spots below on ground level. We made this visit with an elderly senior who needed wheelchair assistance and from the moment we got the wheelchair until we returned same, the arrangements and service from the entire staff to provide extra assistance were simply outstanding. The prices for the tickets were however a bit pricey with no concession whatsoever for seniors!

Good experience. I'm glad we did it because it was on my bucket list of things I wanted to do in Dubai. The line was fairly long to get up to the top, but once there, you could spend as much time as you wanted. The clear panels were an experience to walk over, and the view was amazing. Worth doing.

A truly stunning piece of architecture. The views at the top are incredible, and there's also a glass walkway you can walk across, where you can see directly below you, not for the faint hearted.

Before you get to the top, there's a screen which plays a brief video on the history of Dubai which was very interesting.

Wasn't too busy and only had to wait 25-30 minutes to enter.

I had a great experience at the Dubai Frame! I purchased my ticket ahead of time, which made the entry process very quick, easy and seamless. The Dubai Frame was a lot of fun to visit! Its size is pretty insane and mind blowing, and going up to the top was a must-do experience while in Dubai. Walking on the clear flooring while looking down at the ground was definitely very memorable and I'd highly recommend a visit to the Dubai Frame!

It is not my first excursion of this attraction but this time something special has happened. Due to my mother's recent operation, who came there for her first visit, she wasn't able to stand a queue that was quite long as we came in the afternoon. I informed the ground staff about this situation and they and their indoor collegues let us in through the priority line. I sincerely haven't expected this but it was so thoughtful of them and so kind that I felt like I needed to thank them and share this gesture online. It makes me truly understand that UAE is not only about technological progress and viewing the future today but it is always about people and attitude. Thank you for creating a safe, proactive place and spreading this positive energy to the world. With all my respect,

Another amazing visit in Dubai with this massive frame that gives you views of new Dubai on one side and old Dubai on the other side with a glass bottom floor at the top.

Situated within Zabeel Park, the Dubai Frame serves as an integrated observatory, museum, and monument. Garnering distinction as the world’s largest frame, it stands at an impressive height of 150 meters and spans 95 meters in width. Principally conceived as an observatory, it provides sweeping panoramic vistas of historic Dubai to the north and the modern urban landscape to the south.
