When you’re done luxuriating from some of the best hotels in Dubai, step out and go for a jolly jaunt aboard a seaplane. Let your dreams take flight and spirit soar with glee as you take in the sights of Dubai’s remarkable skyline. Here are some of the breathtaking wonders that you can witness aboard a seaplane tour of Dubai:
Dubai is known for megaprojects that make the global community drop its jaws in awe. One of these world wonders is the Ain Dubai, touted to become the world’s tallest observation wheel when it finally opens around October in time for Dubai Expo2020.
Located in Bluewaters Island, Ain Dubai is a sight to behold with its giant wheel spanning 2,400 kilometers – the same distance between Cairo and Dubai. It stands proudly at over 210 meters and weighs a whopping 9,000 tons. It is said to be double the height of the London Eye and 80 meters taller than the current record holder, the 167-meter-high Las Vegas High Roller.
Lording it over on one of Dubai’s artificial islands, Burj Al Arab is a towering beauty with its iconic design reminiscent of a ship’s sail.
This jaw-dropping landmark is actually a luxury five-star hotel. Aside from being one of the top ten tallest hotels in the world, it is also considered one of the most expensive.
With its gold and marble adornments, top-notch customer service, and over-the-top offerings such as a personal butler, chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce cars, and Hermès toiletries, one cannot help but be impressed at such opulence.
Among Dubai’s most notable landmarks is the Burj Khalifa, an 828-meter-high towering structure that has earned numerous world record titles including the tallest structure and building in the world. Other record-breaking feats include World’s Highest Nightclub, World’s Highest Restaurant, and World’s Largest Lights and Sounds Show Staged in a Single Building.
You can see this glimmering structure while onboard the seaplane as you traverse through the picturesque Dubai airspace. At its foot, you can also gape at the colorful spectacle of the Dubai Fountain, just outside the The Dubai Mall shopping megacenter.
Along the seaplane course is a respite from the glitzy giants and skyscrapers. You can train your eyes along the labyrinthine splendor of the Dubai Creek. This estuary is a nod to the beginnings of this cosmopolitan hub as a fishing and pearl diving economy.
Feast your eyes on the calming grandeur of its waters, with traditional abras floating around, passing by the Dubai Museum and the impressive Al Bastakiya quarter. You can also take time to visit the famed gold, spice, and textile souks for a truly immersive excursion into the colorful culture and heritage of Dubai.
Adding to Dubai’s seemingly unending list of global novelties is a man-made island shaped like a palm tree. The Palm Jumeirah is another world record-holder, proud of its title as the largest artificial island this side of the universe. From way up in the air, you can gasp at how intricate the planning and architecture of this island is.
A triumph of human ingenuity, the islands are home to some of Dubai’s most notable hotels, shopping centers, and tourist spots. You can also find the fifth-best waterpark in the world in this artificial archipelago.
Take a more unconventional route to drink in the sights and sounds of Dubai.
With your amphibious vehicle, you can delight in the destinations both on water and high up in the air. Whether you book a private tour or wouldn’t mind sharing with other world wanderers, a trip to Dubai wouldn’t be complete without a seaplane escapade.
