Best aerial photos of Dubai

Posted by Seawings team on Sep 24, 2017 2:09:36 PM

We have been flying across the Emirates for a decade and have seen some of the best aerial photos of Dubai during this time. We have looked through our collection and selected the very best - from the Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, World Islands and Burj Al Arab. Take a look through and see if you can recognise world-famous icons.

Here are some of the best aerial photos of Dubai from our scenic flights:

Burj Al Arab: This iconic hotel designed in the shape of a sail is a standout subject for pictures capturing the beautiful Jumeirah coastline. We love how the Burj is framed in this image!

Burj Khalifa: Do you see the way the wing tip 'touches'  the world’s tallest tower in the heart of Dubai? This is a very cool shot of the Downtown area from the sky.

Dubai Water Canal: Winding through Business Bay, the water canal is a common passage for water taxis, ferries and private charters.  The canal is lined with walkways so you can also explore it from the ground.

World Islands: Lying 4 km offshore the only way to appreciate this ambitious project is from the sky! Stretching across 9 km this project is still in progress.  This is shot from up front right next to the pilot!

Emirates Hills: This neatly organised neighbourhood of villas, lakes and golf links just off the back of Dubai Marina looks gorgeous when you’re 1500 ft. high.
