Up in the air
With architecture as large and inspiring as Dubai’s, the best way to take it all in is from the air, whether that’s by helicopter, seaplane or from the top of the world’s tallest building. You can book romantic trips to the lofty heights of Burj Khalifa’s 122nd floor to sip cocktails at the contemporary At.Mosphere Bar and get a different angle on Dubai’s renowned Fountain Show from up there.
Of course, Dubai being Dubai, simply taking a seat to look at the views would be too boring, which is where sky diving over Palm Jumeirah comes in. You’ll jump out of a plane to take in all the glory of the world’s largest manmade island, laid-out in the shape of a palm frond, while travelling at 120mph.
