--BENEFITS OF GOING--
Take some stunning family photos with a spectacular backdrop of panoramic views of the city. The Dubai Frame is the largest frame in the world (according to Guinness World Records), and celebrates the story of Dubai from its early establishment to its ambitious plans for future development.
You can do more than simply looking through the frame. In fact, the glass, aluminum, steel, and reinforced concrete structure also doubles as an observation tower that boasts fantastic panoramic vistas. If you're brave enough, step onto the glass floor onto the the 93 metre-long bridge, which features a 25sqm glass panel. Stepping onto the crystal-clear glass gives the exhilarating feeling of walking out into thin air, with a drop of 150m visible just beneath your feet. There’s nothing to fear as the clear glass is completely crack-proof and made of the highest-quality materials. If you have kids or grown ups that are terrified of heights, we suggest you skip that part.
