Hubby really, really, really wanted to ride the monorail so on Friday afternoon we took the metro to the tram, the tram to the monorail and the monorail to the Atlantis resort. We could not use Silver NOL card so we paid AED50 round trip. From the tram, there is a shortish walk to get to the parking garage, a... More

Basically this connects you from the city to the entrance of the Palm Jumeirah and when you get there, there is still a lot of walking you have to do because this Monorail doesn't really take you anywhere.

I used this system again and find that it is the best in Dubai. Trains constantly on time snd all is totally automated. Cheap and worth every penny. 3 class to be find the gold cabin, the women car and the general public cars

Its a must to travel in monorail to see the palm view while going towards atlantis and seeing the fonds that makes the palm shape like a palm tree which we see in pics . On road we cant see this beautiful view but can be seen only when we take the monorail to go to Atlantis . Recommend all... More

The best way to enjoy the view of UAE's artificial archipelago and largest man made island Palm Jumeirah.

The Monorail gives you good views of the Palm, Atlantis and Burj Al Arab. Cash only, so come prepared. If you are going to the Atlantis, worth going on, but doesn't merit a special trip.

While you are visiting Palm islands or Altantic, this gives a good opportunity at AED 15 to get a partial view of how its made. The station where it drops you is the only place in dubai where you need to bargain with a taxi driver and they are not keen to go on meter. It also gives a super... More

It was a nice experience to travel on monorail. Though not different from metro, but still overhead enjoyment of scenes around was very nice.

Having watched these little 'trains' move up and down The Palm for years I finally boarded one for a visit to the Atlantis. And it was popular. The journey is relatively short and pricy compared with the metro and tram, but The Entertainer app gives you two-for-one on a return journey. With the main road on and off the Palm... More

We thought this would be an easy way to see Palm Jumeirah. It was "relatively easy".... There is free parking on the landward side - just follow the pictogram signs for the monorail. Unfortunately with all the new technology on display at the monorail, they only accept cash. The monorail we were on was very busy with the contents of... More
