This Photo Shows Dubai in a Nutshell / Jumeirah Beach

These Photos Show Dubai in a Nutshell

These photos show Dubai in a nutshell. You’ve seen the city’s futuristic and postcard-perfect skyline many times, perhaps, but you’ve never seen a photo that speaks volumes of contradictions that aren’t really hard to see. At Jumeirah Beach, where these photos were taken, these camels and their master go for a walk along the beach, luring […]

The World's Most Beautiful Starbucks at Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai.

The Most Beautiful Starbucks in the World

A friend (whom I’ve never seen in ages) and I went to Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai with one purpose – to see, try and experience what it’s like sitting in the most beautiful Starbucks in the world. Well, apparently. It’s not just gorgeous but it’s grand and magnificent! The high ceiling dome filled with […]

Mosaic at Wafi Mall in Dubai.

The Mosaics at Wafi Mall

The mosaics at Wafi Mall is one thing that caught my eye. I wasn’t even supposed to be there, but the tour bus that would bring us to the desert for the sunset tour picked us up from here. There’s no doubt that Wafi Mall is the Little Egypt in Dubai. The building itself has […]

View from the Top of Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building.

View from the Top of Burj Khalifa

The view from the top of Burj Khalifa in Dubai shows the fast-growing pace of wherever the city is heading to. Since The Burj is the tallest building in the world, the other skyscrapers you see when you’re overland look nothing but skinny matchsticks from above. It is amazing to see the vast expanse of the […]

Dubai Marina at night is splendid.

Photos: Dubai Marina at Night

Dubai Marina has the world’s longest row / block of skyscrapers. And when this area in Dubai is completely finished, it’s going to beat California’s Marina del Ray as the largest man-made marina in the world. And that’s an additional world record for Dubai who is so obsessed with breaking world records. As a man-made […]

Views of Dubai Creek / The Old Dubai>

Strolling Along Dubai Creek

The life you see around Dubai Creek is a stark contrast of what modern Dubai is known for. On my last morning in Dubai, I strolled along Dubai Creek because someone recommended that it’s the best time and place to stroll and photograph whatever life is there around the creek. I did stroll around for […]

The Divers at Dubai Mall Waterfalls.

The Divers at Dubai Mall Waterfalls

Dubai Mall Waterfalls is spectacular!  Dubai Mall won’t stop surprising you with lots of things to do. It’s a mall not just about shopping but there’s also so much work of art everywhere. There’s one installation art that impressed me most—the Dubai Mall Waterfall where silver-colored sculptures of divers complement the cascading, gentle flow of […]

Atlantis Dubai (aka Atlantis The Palm).

Atlantis Dubai

My plan was to stay at Atlantis Dubai (aka Atlantis The Palm) for the whole afternoon but when I reached the Aquaventure Waterpark ticket booth, I was very horrified. The queue was longer than I had anticipated. I reluctantly joined the line, with high hopes that it would move fast. Forty five minutes later, I […]

Mall of Dubai Aquarium and Underground Zoo.

Mall of Dubai Aquarium and Underground Zoo

The Mall of Dubai Aquarium and Underground Zoo is not for all. It is expensive for the common employee in the city. No wonder why there are more people outside taking selfie than going inside to see the excitement themselves. And you guessed it right—I didn’t go inside. Not only because I won’t spend that […]

Dubai Under Construction - A City Built for Record-breaking Superlatives.
