Amazing seaplane tour pictures of Dubai and Abu Dhabi

Posted by Seawings team on Sep 13, 2017 9:43:00 AM
We have been flying across the Emirates for a decade and have seen some amazing seaplane tour pictures. There’s so much to capture from stunning cityscapes, to future-forward architecture to dramatic natural scenes. We have looked through our collection and selected the very best - from the Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, World Islands and Yas Marina. We’re sharing our collection of world-famous icons as well as some lesser known attractions.

Here are some of the most amazing seaplane tour pictures of Dubai and Abu Dhabi taken from our scenic flights:

Impressive architecture

Burj Khalifa: Perhaps the best known landmark in Dubai, the Burj Khalifa not only lights up the city during the day with its glimmering facade but it also brings the night skyline to life. We just love how the wing tip gently touches the world’s tallest tower in the heart of Downtown Dubai.amazing seaplane tour pictures

Burj Al Arab: How’s this for perspective? This iconic hotel designed in the shape of a sail is perfectly set within the window frame and wing. We think this is one of the most amazing seaplane tour pictures of Dubai.

Yas Marina Circuit: Truly appreciated from the sky,this picturesque circuit set within the marina makes this destination a fitting finale for the Formula One Season each year.

Dubai Frame: Perfectly positioned to create a window between historic and new Dubai, this new attraction is sure to be a hit with locals and visitors. Taking on the shape of a gold plated picture frame, when finished the 150 meter high landmark will provide visitors with access a new observation deck as well as an exhibition space.

Emirates Palace Hotel: At the time it was built, to the tune of $USD three billion, it was the most expensive hotel built in the world. Featuring more than 100 domes spanning 1000 hectares, the architecture and grounds of this resort is gorgeous.

World Islands: Lying four kilometres offshore, this network of islands designed to represent the globe is fascinating to see from the air.

Palm Jumeirah: The Palm Jumeirah is home to world-class resorts, beach clubs, theme parks and exclusive homes. While it’s well recommended to visit, you can only fully appreciate the magnificence of this incredible man-made island from the sky.

Jebel Ali Palm: The Jebel Ali Palm, which is designed to be 50 per cent larger than the Palm Jumeirah is an expansive project that is still to be completed. The view from the air shows the impressive scale of the development.

Natural beauty

Eastern Mangrove Forest: The expansive 110 square kilometre mangrove lagoon is an essential ecosystem, supports wildlife and helps keep the waters surrounding Sir Bani Yas Island clean and clear.

Emirates Hills: This neatly organised neighbourhood of villas, lakes and golf links looks gorgeous when you’re 1500 ft. high. It’s definitely one of the more unexpected, yet amazing seaplane tour pictures of Dubai.
