So you’ve seen Dubai from the top of Burj Khalifa? Well, there’s an even better view of the emirate, believe it or not, and from much higher.
A Seawings scenic flight offers a perspective of a city that almost needs to be seen from the sky to be understood, soaring high above the emirate’s past, present and future.
As we take off from Dubai Creek, on a perfectly clear day, the greenery of Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club quickly gives way to Old Dubai and the city’s bustling Port Rashid, which shows just how important the sea trade has been, and still is, to the city.

To our right, the World Islands project glistens in the distance as we follow the stunning beaches of Dubai up to Burj Al Arab, the luxury hotel that juts out from the coastline like a giant sail.
Just past this comes the highlight of the journey, a lap above Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah. From the ground, it’s difficult to get a good perspective of this audacious project; but from a Seawings flight, one gets a real glimpse at how ambitious, and remarkable the Palm is.
The world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa stands out from the skyscrapers of Downtown Dubai on our journey back, and it’s only then that I realise just how smooth the flight on the nine-seater Cessna Caravan has been – not a single bump from take off to touch down at Dubai Creek.
With its comfortable seating, an air-conditioned cabin, large glass windows for every seat, and of course, those remarkable views, this is one luxury Dubai experience not to be missed.
