The wait for the opening of hotly anticipated tourist attraction Dubai Frame will go on just a little bit longer, as it has been confirmed that the new landmark will open to the public in January.
With Dubai Safari due to open in the coming weeks (we know it will be December, for sure), local reports indicate that the opening date for the Dubai Frame has been rescheduled to make sure the two major openings don’t clash.
“Since Dubai Safari is opening next month, we will inaugurate Dubai Frame in January to avoid opening two major landmarks at the same time,” Khalid Al Suwaidi, director of leisure facilities at Dubai Municipality told Khaleej Times.
While we’re definitely eager to see inside the Frame, the decision totally makes sense, with both destinations (the Dubai Frame and Dubai Safari) having drawn so much anticipation and excitement during their development.
Also known as Berwaz Dubai, the Frame is comprised of two towers measuring 150 metres in height, and connected by a 93-metre-long bridge at the top. Property giant Emaar has signed an exclusive agreement to market and promote the Dubai Frame, which it will do as one of its major tourist attractions, along with At The Top at the Burj Khalifa.
We also know that the landmark will open with no paper tickets, using a mobile ticketing system with bookings made online or on a dedicated mobile app. Prices start from Dhs30 for children, Dhs50 for adults, with children under three, adults over 60 and people of determination getting free entry.
It’s not far away now, and we can’t wait.
