It is worth taking a look at this pristine palace. You can’t go in but there is parking and you can stroll up the drive way towards the impressive entrance gates which are topped by horse statues.

There are normally plenty of peacocks wandering around and an impressive police vehicle on display - it was a police G Wagon on the day I visited.

Recently visited Zabeel Palace with my 2.8 yrs old son to see Peacocks.

It is a beautiful place to visit. You are not allowed near the palace but you can get a magnificent view of the palace and iconic sites from there.
It is green and with open space.
As it has lots of trees around you can view variety of birds. If you would like to see some peacocks taking stroll around best time to visit is from 4 AM - 7 AM or 3.30 PM - 6.30 PM.
Visitors parking available.
It is open throughout the day.

During our day of driving around Dubai, our guide took us the the Palace for a short visit. Not too crowded. In addition to seeing the palace at a distance, the site offered nice views of other landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa and the Frame.

Visited the palace used by the Dubai ruler as part of half day city tour. You can only move upto a point and can't get close to the palace beyond a point. The area is very clean with greenery. The tour was organised by Royal Arabian Tour Destination and the tour guide was very informative. The trip lasted for 30 mins and is sufficient for covering this tourist attraction.

I didn't expect much when our tour bus arrived because we couldn't go in the palace to see how it is. Since we got dropped off there, we might as well just take a look.The palace is surrounded by well maintained lush gardens. From the garden we had a nice view of the Dubai frame tower. The garden has tight security. They placed two vehicles as a border line. The one closer to the palace had a guard on duty inside. If visitors wander past the second vehicle, the guard would talk to you and stop you. Although we can't see the palace close up, but we still can see a bit. Happy travelling!
