The most spectacular excursion we did in Dubai was a flight by seaplane over Dubai. The seaplane departed from Jebel Ali Golf Resort and from there we flew over Palm Jebel Ali, Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, The Wold, Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa. The photo above is a view over The World archipelago. In 2009 The World was already created, but the World Islands were still undeveloped, except one island with a show house. Nowadays the Royal Island Beach Club at Lebanon Island opened and construction started at Taiwan. Furthermore Nakheel Group announced a plan to connect the islands with a road. For us the view over The World was amazing, despite that it was still undeveloped. It was an expensive, but unique excursion and definitely worth the money! More photos can be seen here.
