The Palm Jumeirah is one of the most iconic attractions of Dubai. Known to be the biggest manmade island in the world, the Palm Jumeirah is shaped in the form of a palm tree. Each of the 16 fronds of the palm island is home to luxurious hotels, beautiful villas, high-end boutiques and malls, pristine beaches, etc. Moreover, there is the Hotel Atlantis the Palm, which is the crowning glory of the island. Up until now, the only ways of seeing the aerial view of the island is by going on a helicopter ride or opting for a skydiving experience. However, with the opening of The View, viewing the aerial view of the Palm Jumeirah has become one of the most popular attractions of the city.
The View is the observation deck on the 52nd floor of the Palm Tower, next to Nakheel Mall. The entrance to the building is on the roof of the mall, from where you take the elevator to the observation deck that in 240 meters above the palm island. Before you take the 3 minutes journey up to the deck, you can visit the interactive museum and gallery that will tell you the story about the creation of the Palm Jumeirah. Once you reach the deck, you get to see a 360o view of the Palm Jumeirah, the Dubai skyline and the Arabian Gulf.
The View has both open and enclosed viewing sections that give a panoramic view of the Palm Jumeirah. It also has a VIP lounge, café and a retail store where you can buy souvenirs for your family and friends.
