The destination was the water park adjacent to the Atlantis hotel on the Palm Jameria. A monorail connects the mainland direct to the park, but it itself isn’t yet connected to the metro or public transport, so again the taxi came to the rescue.

The monorail ride along the middle artery of the Palm was quite interesting. Dominating the end of the line was the Atlantis hotel itself, whilst along the route are millionaire mansions and apartments (some of which appeared vacant). The monorail stops along the way were closed as both the Palm Mall and Trump Tower have yet to be built. Like many parts of Dubai, they are still building it.
