This tree-shaped iconic man made island known for its upmarket apartments and restaurants marks 20 years of existence today. Founded in 2001 this marvel is nothing but an engineering masterpiece. Dubai is a city recognized for its world firsts, and Palm Jumeriah is one of its golden creations.
Home to Dubai’s most luxurious resorts and restaurants, including one of the best hotels in the world, Atlantis. Palm is a city on its own. Its not just a trademark location in Dubai, but also offers several fun and one-of-a-kind experiences. Looking two decades back, nobody could have imagined that a dessert can turn into this marvelous sight. Palm Jumeriah also brought monorail transport system to the Middle East, which runs driverless and leaves you amazed with its scenic island waters all around.
The latest addition to Palm Jumeriah is the newly launched Palm Tower. The View at Palm Tower is the brand new tourist attraction in the city. With a viewing deck at the 52nd floor, that offers a 360-degree exhilarating view of this man-made island. This view point has got the internet ringing! Palm Tower is an interactive space with an aquarium tunnel and a theatre that displays the history of Palm Jumeriah and how it came into existence. You can spot the Dubai landmarks from the top, with Dubai Marina on one side and Bluewaters Island on the other. A totally new and exciting experience for UAE residents and tourists to explore!
