With one of the most recognisable and most admired skylines in the world, Dubai's sights and sounds are a delight to the senses. Residents and tourists alike will find themselves easily mesmerised by the many landmarks that dot the landscape, from the tallest building on the planet to man-made islands in the Arabian Gulf. Every corner of the emirate has something spectacular to offer - be it Dubai's historic districts or the modern icons outlining the coastline. Instagrammers, especially, will find themselves in for a treat with the massive structures that define the city's rapid development. But taking it all in from ground level doesn't do justice to the wonder that is Dubai. For the complete picture, an aerial view is sure to give you a whole new perspective on the city. And as a myconcierge member, you can book yourself a seat on a seaplane flight with Seawings to view the emirate from the sky.
While Seawings offers multiple sightseeing options, the 20-minute Snapshot Tour is great for those looking to grab the best of Dubai's spectacular sights in a short span of time. After you're welcomed on board the nine-seater Cessna Caravan plane and strapped in, experience the thrill of a water takeoff from Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.
The flight path covers the islands dotting the Arabian Gulf, a glimpse of the World Islands and then moves on to the Jumeirah coastline, where you can enjoy a bird's eye view of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah as well as the Palm Islands. From here, you make your way back to the urban heart of Dubai, where you can enjoy panoramas of the city's Downtown district including Burj Khalifa, before you land at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.
The one thing that definitely stands out is watching Dubai's older neighbourhoods transform into a landscape of skyscrapers, and how surreal it all gets from this up close angle. So be sure to carry your camera along to capture memories of this thrilling experience.
