If one wants to see the Awesome skyline ,the best looking buildings, the sea ,the view of the palm island,the beaches ,sun rise with clear views ,I recommend to consider going early and reach by 6 am to experience it. The views are Awesome, traffic is negligible on the roads. It is located inside Nakheel Mall. This is very important . One has to ask for Taxi drop location or main entrance of Nakheel Mall ,enter the building and ask for view from the Top. In the Night view one will only see the glittering lights and not able to experience the Architectural beauty of Dubai.

The entry point was not very clearly signed but at the building you have to go to is very obvious as it is considerably taller than any surrounding building. The view from the top over the Palm was excellent and worth going to see.

The view, animation, and staff are all amazing. I think it is better to visit here than Burj Khalifa or The Sky View

Great flight.Enjoyed every minute. Great pictures and video available to purchase.

Just great. Getting up early is worth it! We loved it.
