Sky Views Dubai

At 219.5m above ground, Sky Views Dubai sweeps visitors off their feet with mesmerising perspectives of Downtown Dubai below and the sublime city skyline beyond. Perched atop the Address Sky View hotel, this architectural marvel comprises three distinct offerings for thrill-inducing escapades — the Observatory, Glass Slide and Edge Walk.


At The Top, Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa at the Top

Standing high above the city, you can enjoy breathtaking views when you reach At The Top, Burj Khalifa. The observatory is located on the 124th and 125th floors of the world's tallest building, while the premium At The Top Sky is on the 148th floor – a staggering 555m above ground. Equally amazing views are available at At.Mosphere, one of the most renowned restaurants in Burj Khalifa.


The View at The Palm

Enjoy incomparable views of one of Dubai’s most iconic landmarks at The View at The Palm. Located 240m high, the observation deck presents 360-degree panoramas of Palm Jumeirah alongside the sparkling waters of the Arabian Gulf and Dubai's skyline in the distance. The View at The Palm is located on level 52 of The Palm Tower, which also houses a café, a creative exhibition that showcases the development of the island, interactive aquarium-themed tunnels and a gift shop.


The Viewing Point


Whether you're after a romantic moment, a stunning social media snap or a spot of quiet contemplation, The Viewing Point at Dubai Creek Harbour is the perfect place to go. The innovative new structure projects 26m over the water and 11.65m above it, offering unobstructed views of both Dubai Creek and Downtown Dubai.


Dubai Frame

Dubai Frame is one of the city’s most beloved attractions for visitors and residents alike, and the landmark's location in Zabeel Park ensures panoramic views of Dubai. At 150m tall and 93m wide, with a bridge connecting the two towers, Dubai Frame is a unique structure that guarantees incredible sights of the city's old and new neighbourhoods.


Garden in the Sky

Step into the Garden in the Sky observation tower in Jubilee Park which lifts you 55m above ground for panoramic views of Expo City Dubai – a bird’s eye view that can’t be found elsewhere. The awe-inspiring rotating structure has an oasis in the sky, with a verdant upper deck filled with lush greenery. It also offers air-conditioned lower floors which provides equally spectacular and 360-degree views of Expo City. Day or night, the tower aims to provide an enchanting experience for every visitor. As the sun sets, the base of the tower lights up, providing an ethereal ambience to the structure.


The Dubai Balloon

Atlantis Palm Jumeirah Balloon Dubai

Enjoy unbeatable panoramas of Dubai's coastal sights and glittering skyline from The Dubai Balloon, a tethered helium balloon which takes guests to heights of up to 300 metres. During your 10-minute trip into the sky, you’ll get the best possible view of Palm Jumeirah, witnessing the full extent of this manmade marvel. On a clear day, you can even see as far as Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai.
