UAE residents have one more reason to look forward to the New Year as they can see the city from an entirely new perspective the Dubai Frame which is thrown open to public today.
People can access the newest landmark that stands tall in Zabeel Park from 10am on Monday - the first day of the new year- till 7pm for Dh50 for adults and Dh20 for children children between 3 to 12 years old. People above 60 and people of determination will get free entry along with two companions.
Speaking to the press on a media tour inside the Dubai Frame, Eng. Hussain Lootah, director general of Dubai Municipality, said the frame is the New Year gift to the public from Dubai.
The frame visitors can pick up their tickets at Zabeel Park Gate 4 based on time slots. An integrated online platform will be launched, in cooperation with Etisalat, in the next two weeks to allow people to purchase tickets for Dubai Frame and Dubai Safari Park.
“The frame will only accept 200 visitors per hour with groups of 20 per slot. The ticket will mention the date and time, so people who purchase their tickets must note the date and time of their visit to avoid delays and jams,” said Lootah.
The Dh260 million project tells the story of the past, present and future of Dubai. The two 150-meter high transparent glass towers are connected by a 93-meter bridge where visitors can get a 360-degree view of the city: the North shows the landmarks of old Dubai, including Deira, Umm Hurair and Karama, while the South portrays the modern shopping malls, Sheikh Zayed Road skyscrapers and Burj Khalifa.
The golden structure is expected to attract two million visitors a year
