Travellers visiting Dubai will soon be able to enjoy an exhilarating experience from 285 metres high in the sky. The new AYKON City development will have a platform on the roof of its tallest tower where visitors can stand outside before climbing up to a glass-floored viewing box where they will feel like they are floating above the bustling city below.

Soar 285 metres above Dubai City at the AYKON Dare

Dubai’s skyline is one of the most famous in the world with its soaring unique structures and desert landscape backdrop. Travellers will soon be able experience the city from a different angle – from 285 metres up in the sky. The new development, AYKON City, will have a platform on top of its tallest tower where visitors can see the city from dizzying heights.

Spectators will first go outside onto a platform before climbing up a level into a glass-floored box where they will feel like they are floating above the city of Dubai. The experience will be called AYKON Dare, and it has been inspired by the EdgeWalk at the CN Tower in Toronto, where travellers are harnessed to a safety rail and they can walk freely (without hands) around the building’s edge while enjoying stunning views.

An AYKON City spokesperson says that on a clear day visitors might be able to see out as far as the Dubai/Abu Dhabi border. AYKON City is a six-tower development under construction on Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road overlooking the Dubai Canal. The project includes luxury hotels, hotel apartments, private residences, an office tower, as well as the AYKON Plaza, an elevated platform with parks, beach club, the AYKON Spa, restaurants, cafes, swimming pools, a running track, children’s playgrounds, shops, and a yoga lawn.

The development is estimated to cost AED 7.4 billion and construction is underway, with a completion date of 2021.

Dubai is a vibrant United Arab Emirate that is home to some of the world’s most unusual modern architecture. Iconic landmarks include the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, measuring at 829.8 metres high and home to the 15-storey Armani Hotel and an observation deck.

The Burj al Arab is the emirate’s most well-known hotel due to its unusual sail-shaped structure, designed to represent the local dhow boats. It is one of the most luxurious hotels in the Middle East with an aquarium restaurant, award-winning dining outlets, personal butler service, and the top-floor Gold On 27 bar with magnificent views.

Dubai attracts both leisure and business travellers, and its plethora of attractions and luxury hotels is ever-expanding. The city is also home to the world’s busiest airport, Dubai International Airport.
