Get a bird's eye view of the ever-expanding city.

With much of Dubai's sightseeing spent looking at astronomically tall buildings, it's very easy to get a crick in your neck as you peer upwards. A far better way to inspect the city's growing skyline - and to see the tops of the towers - is to look down from the heavens. Based a short drive out of Dubai, Seawings offers a variety of tours in its seaplane that give you just that view. Take in the Burj Al Arab, the Burj Khalifa, The Palm Jumeirah and The World islands from a bird's eye vantage point, with no issues of traffic jams or taxi queues. It's the perfect way to take in almost the whole city in one go and to realise that - just a few years ago - none of it was here. 

Value for money
