Keeping intact its reputation of being an innovative destination, Dubai has once again brought a superlative structure to the front- the Dubai Frame.
An architectural marvel, the Dubai Frame has 2 towers, 150m each joined by a 93m long bridge at the top with a void in the center rising from Dubai’s Zabeel Park.
Now also being called the Frame of Dubai or Berwaz Dubai, the idea behind the Frame was actually to ‘frame’ the evolution journey of the city of Dubai, from a small time fishing village to the glamorous and glittering cultural hub it is in the present day.
So from the top of the Dubai Frame, one can truly see the coming together of all stages of the city – its quaint past, buzzing present, and ever bright future.
Touted to be one of the main tourist attractions in Dubai, after the The Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab, Dubai Frame has gained a lot of tourist attraction since 2018. Dubai Frame was designed by the award winning architect Fernando Donis – previously of Dubai’s Porsche Design Towers, and the Dubai Renaissance Tower fame. The sheer grandeur and opulence of the Frame’s decor, which is studded with stainless gold cladding, is no less than a worthy tribute to Dubai’s reputation as the ‘City of Gold’.
Flaunting over 15,000 sqm of gold cladding, the honeycomb like structures in the golden ring design on the building’s exterior is inspired by the logo of Expo 2020, another major attraction which Dubai is all set to host soon.

Located in Zabeel Park, one of Dubai’s oldest parks – Dubai Frame is set smack dab in the middle of Dubai’s humble town beginnings, and arrays beautifully into its glam and urban cityscape.
Also close to the Dubai Creek, the Frame allows visitors to enjoy aerial views of the abras (the traditional wood boats that ferry people across the Dubai Creek) on the water, a distant glimpse of the Arabian Gulf and other such sharp details. The Dubai Frame also has a state of the art 25 sqm glass bridge connecting the two towers of the frame, and the second you step on it, the mist clears and lo and behold, all of Dubai right under your feet! A sight that would be hard to forget, this tiptoe across the bridge isn’t for those who are phobic to heights.
The Dubai Frame Ticket Prices are quite economical compared to other attractions around Dubai. Adult tickets are priced at AED 50, while children’s’ tickets cost AED 30. Much like the other tourist attractions of Dubai, tickets for senior citizens and children under the age of 3 are completely free of cost.
To see the Dubai Frame in all its stunning glory, one should visit it around sunset. With the sunlight illuminating the Frame, and all of its intricate gold designs, the view is absolutely phenomenal!
One can also visit the Frame at night time, and soak in the views of the glittering skyline and sea, along with a cool breeze blowing, making the setting so much prettier.
There’s even more at the Frame! It also has 2 tiny kiosks on the top – the famous chocalatier Godiva Chocolates and a Japanese bakery named Yamanote Atelier – for those with a sweet tooth! At the exit of the Frame there is a small Dubai Frame souvenir shop, perfect for those small gifts and some great merchandise like mugs, t-shirts, caps and key chains emblazoned with the Dubai Frame icon as a token of your visit, and for your loved ones.
