Dubai: The latest icon in Dubai is all set for a January opening, but on Tuesday, it opened its doors to receive its first guest – His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The Frame, which is referred to in Arabic as Berwaz, consists of two 150 metre-high towers that are connected by a 93m bridge at the top. The space between the towers gives a pretty clear view of the city from a high altitude.

According to Dubai Frame, entry tickets will cost Dh50 for adults, while children will have to pay Dh30.

Free tickets will be offered for children under three, people over 60 and people of determination.

Gulf News previously reported that the Dubai Frame is expected to attract nearly 2 million tourists a year, and will have a smart ticketing system instead of paper tickets.

A recent video posted by Dubai Municipality also showed how visitors can take a tour all the way from the water fountain located at the entrance, through the museum on the ground floor, and up to the purple and blue installation of lights at the observation deck.

Various elements including holograms and 3D technology are used to depict the past, present and future of Dubai.
