Every time one visits Dubai, one finds another brand new marvel which astonishes and gratifies the senses. The massive picture frame, Dubai Frame, is Dubai’s latest eye-popping attraction, which will soon be complete and ready to stun visitors. What’s the idea behind building a giant picture within a city? It’s simple, really. Dubai is picturesque, with its magnificent skyline and amazing landmarks. So why not frame all this magnificence within a grand picture frame? What’s really great is that you can climb to the top of Dubai Frame and enjoy awe-inspiring views of the entire city’s sights – both old and new – from a single frame. It’ll be your moment in time, framed for life, on the very special Dubai Frame tour.
The Dubai Frame Concept
The incredible Dubai Frame is coming up next to Star Gate in Zabeel Park. It’s a rectangular structure that’s constructed using two monumental towers that 150 meters high and 93 meters wide. These two towers are linked by a 100-square-meter bridge, which forms the top portion of the frame. The space between the towers literally ‘frames’ the city from a high altitude, forming an unbelievably rich picture that will stay in your memory for ever. To the north are great views of Old Dubai with Dubai Creek, Bur Dubai and Deira, Karama, and Umm Hurair areas. To the south, there’s New Dubai with all its incredible landmarks. The Dubai Frame is meant to be a bridge between the past and the present – in this sense, Old Dubai and New Dubai.

When Is Dubai Frame To Be Launched?
Dubai Frame is almost in completion stage and the launch date will be announced shortly.

When it is completed, the Dubai Frame will become perhaps the most famous tourist destination in the city. It’ll be that incredible landmark that tourists simply must see, just like the Burj Khalifa and the Burj Al Arab.
The Dubai Frame is so tall, you can compare its height to that of a 50-storey building. The pending launch of the Dubai Frame has created a great deal of anticipation worldwide.
