Well, its stranded in the middle of the desert, literally.
I read comments about Dubai being called a “ mirage” apparently it kinda is one.
My Dubai consisted of business, a Hummer through the sand and a snapsot of the highlights, oh and a mini desert storm.
1. Burj el Arab and the Jumeirah region:
This is the area where the Emirates-locals and the Royal family lives. Regarding the Burj, conspiracy theory says that the architecture is shaped like a sail if you approach it from the front, and like a cross if you approach it from the sea.
2. Burj Khalifa:
Ok, this building tops any of the skyscrapers I have ever seen. Its menkind at its limits. 824 metres and an observatory at 124th floor... But just one question, who cleans the windows?
3. Hotels and Dining:
b. Then there is the Global Village, the JBR and the Dubai Marina as well.
Here’s a quotation from the Guardian, thanks to a recommendation by my friend Geoff,enjoy!
