Examples of interesting station design:
||The elevated and at-grade Dubai Metro stations combine both heritage and modern designs. They have been modelled on the shape of seashell, inspired from the diving and pearl-fishing heritage of the UAE, while the interior design depicts the four elements of nature – water, air, earth and fire.

||Conceptual design of some stations includes traditional architectural ingredients used in antique Arab buildings such as wind towers, oriels, alleyways or internal arches.

|Most of the metro is elevated and provides breathtaking views of Dubai's spectacular skyscraper architecture as it runs along the very long Sheikh Zayed Road. It is a recommended sightseeing option for tourists, and as the metro is driverless, you can enjoy the views from the front window like in this video: youtube.com.|

|The Palm Jumeirah Monorail is another option for excellent views.|
