Flying High Over Dubai

Atlantis Palm Jumeirah

I hadn’t realised just how fast helicopters go.  We zoomed our way from one end of Dubai to the other and back again in no time at all.  Which is a welcome change to the traffic that we’re usually stuck in!

Phil decided that the celebration of our ninth wedding anniversary was the perfect time for me to go on my first helicopter ride.

The views were of course incredible, despite it being a rather hazy day.  We looked down over the Palm Jumeirah and the huge ships in the port.

And even though we were high up in the sky, we still weren’t level wth the Burj Khalifa.  From above the incredible skyscrapers look even more impressive.  But it also highlights just how much of Dubai isn’t in fact made up of giant shiny buildings.

It was a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. Although I really want to go up again now!

Oh, there’s video too if you want to see more of our Dubai helicopter ride:

    Beautiful! You got such a wonderful vantage point overlooking Palm Islands! I happened to see a helicopter set off from near Atlantis’ open carpark and was impressed, now I can see that it’s the helipads over there! =)
