Follow the Dubai coastline and admire the Palm and World Islands as they were meant to be seen, forming their distinctive shapes in the crystalline waters of the Arabian Gulf.
You will then fly inwards towards the mainland so you marvel at the tallest building in the world and a jewel of modern Dubai, the Burj Khalifa. Cruise past the buildings that build the remarkable city skyline, like the JW Marriott Marquis and the Jumeirah Emirates towers before your helicopters maneuvers you over the distinctive Dubai Creek and Business Bay.
