Dubai has been the hot spot for tourists to flock to every year. With cutting-edge infrastructure and
new world innovation, Dubai is a star city in the UAE. Amidst this beautiful extravaganza of
jaw-dropping architecture lies the island of Palm Jumeirah. Dubai’s tropical experience starts here with
glitzy posh hotels and upmarket restaurants made to pique your love for luxury. But now, you can enter
through the Palm Gateway and access an experience
like never before using
– The Palm Monorail.
The palm monorail opened for the first time in 2009. However, in the last decade, it's come a long way. Take the scenic route riding the Palm Monorail across Palm Jumeirah’s engineering marvel. Every stop will treat your eyes with a fiesta of the sheer brilliance of humankind itself.
The 5.5 km long monorail is the only public transportation system that can be availed by residents, visitors, and tourists alike. Additionally, this beautiful piece of engineering is sustainable and has significantly low impacts on its surrounding environment. The fee to get around on the monorail is quite affordable, with a single trip costing you 10 AED and a round-trip 15 AED.
The palm monorail offers a one-of-a-kind experiential journey starting across five wondrous stations:
Each station opens a gateway for you to an experience of a lifetime. You’ll find attractions for all ages and all types along the course of this journey. Let's dive deep and check out what they offer to lovers of the high-life.
