Where the rolling dunes of the desert meet the rolling waves of the sea, for countless centuries sat a little sleepy fishing village. How times have changed. Now bursting forth from the sand in futuristic glass and steel shapes – and trying its hardest to touch the sky –Dubai is a metropolis like no other. It has to be seen to be believed.
Taking in the man-made wonder of the world’s tallest skyline from the ground level is breathtaking, taking it in by helicopter is simply unmissable. Soar high as the Burj Khalifa, swoop low over the dunes, and hover above the miraculous Palm Jumeirah.
Flights can be on a shared or private basis with a range of helicopters on offer. Transfers between sights, hotels, the desert or neighbouring cities like Abu Dhabi are easily arranged. Preset heli-tours of the city can be selected from the list below:
