Skyview of Palm Jumeirah

A must to do while in Dubai. At least one way travel is suggested for a wholesome view of Palm Jumeirah habitat and Atlantis Hotel. Occupy front seats in first cabin for best view.

My Monorail trip was part of a sighseeing tour, we took the train from Atlantis.

We took this out to Atlantis the Palm and back . It's easy to use , clean and quick - nice smooth ride. Also you can get good photos of Atlantis the Palm if you have your camera ready on approach / depart

one way of going to the atlantis the palm. 25aed return tickets. good view of the sea and antantis. bad view of the buildings being constructed going there, lots of it. because the train was only attached to a single rail it was a bit worry some riding it above land. it is little bit leaning when turning.

This is one of the mode of transportation on Palm Jumeirah which is man made island. However, it is costly as well as time consuming when tourist are generally booking palm atlantis water park. as such one can avoid it.
