Arab Emirates – Dubai seems to have no sense of attracting tourists. One of them is by building an icon in the form of the world’s largest gold-plated photo frame, Dubai Frame. Tours in Dubai won’t be complete if you don’t stop by at the Burj Khalifa. Want to attract the world, Dubai then built a new icon called Dubai Frame.
Dubai Frame has an unusual shape, which is a picture frame. Accidentally built-in Zabeel Park, Dubai Frame became the boundary between Old Dubai and New Dubai. From the outside, Dubai Frame looks so sparkling because it is gold plated. Built within 5 years, Dubai Frame spent up to 130 million AED or 35 million in USD.
How much is the entrance fee?
This giant photo frame has a height of 150 meters. Its enormous size makes Dubai Frame officially the world’s largest building with a frame shape. Tourists can explore the inside of the Dubai Frame by paying for a ticket of 50 Dirhams. At the entrance to the building, all visitors will be inspected by security officers. Passing a beautiful park decorated with motivational words from Sheikh Mohammed, Ruler of Dubai, tourists can take pictures with the background of the Dubai Frame.
When entering the Dubai Frame, the museum visitors will be examined once again using an x-ray scan. Items such as lighters are not permitted to be carried up. Towards a theater room, the visitors are invited to see the past life of the people of Dubai. Some Dubai residents live in the desert, the rest work as fishermen. Pearl traders and divers are also part of Dubai’s identity. The abundant Arabian Gulf is helping the people of Dubai to reach markets in other countries such as Iran.
After entering Dubai Frame, visitors are directed to take the elevator. In just seconds, visitors can arrive at an altitude of 150 meters. High technology makes the ears don’t hurt when rising to the top.
The main attraction of the Dubai Frame?
Up to the summit, visitors are calmed by 360-degree views from inside the museum. In the center of the museum, a transparent glass looks like a bridge. This ‘bridge’ is made different from other floors. Transparent white glass and extending from the end of the elevator to the elevator exit.
This is the main attraction. Museum officials will invite visitors to walk on the 93-meter bridge. Once the floor is stepped on, the white glass will turn transparent. The view is the pool and the garden in Zabeel Park. You are allowed to take pictures with a squat pose or kneel. But don’t try to pose to sit or lie down, you will be scolded later. This position is prohibited when taking pictures on the bridge because it will disturb the comfort of other visitors.
