Dubai Municipality launches new system for attraction that has so far seen 466,000 visitors since opening earlier this year
An e-ticketing system for Dubai Frame, the emirate's latest tourist attraction, was launched on Wednesday by Dubai Municipality.
Dawood Abdulrahman Al Hajiri, director general of Dubai Municipality, announced the new way to book tickets in advance and ensure their preferred time of visit to Dubai Frame.
The new system offers a wide range of e-services, including detailed information about Dubai Frame to help visitors plan their visit to it with ease.
Dubai Frame allows the visitor to have a 360 degree view of Dubai’s old and modern city and has received more than 466,000 visitors since its opening at the beginning of this year.
Hajiri said the new system will reduce the rush at the ticket counter at Dubai Frame, which will make the visitors' experience easier and more enjoyable.
Mohammed Mubarak Al Mutaiwei, assistant director general of Dubai Municipality for Communications and Community Sector, added: "The launch of the new Dubai Frame portal is in line with Dubai Smart Initiative's plans to enable Dubai residents to access all the city's facilities using smart electronic systems, including the Frame.
"The technology includes photography, sharing of images immediately via e-mail and social media, as well as providing free Wi-Fi for visitors."
Located in Zabeel Park, Dubai Frame celebrates the city's rich heritage and modern identity, allowing visitors to travel through time. After a panoramic elevator ride to the upper bridge, visitors can see the progress Dubai has made over the past years that transformed the emirate from a trade, fishing and pearl centre into a city with high-rise skyscrapers.
The Future Gallery, located on the mezzanine floor, offers visitors an interactive screen of what the emirate will become in the next 50 years.
Dubai Frame, which is expected to receive more than two million visitors each year, is open every day from 9am to 9pm. The ticket price is AED50 for adults and AED20 for children aged 3 to 12 years. Visitors from the People of Determination category and children under 3 years and the elderly people above 60 years can visit the Dubai Frame free of charge.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
