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 […]

Sunset in Dubai / Dubai Skyline.

This is not really Dubai sunset at its best but these photos were taken close to sunset. I took these while on a bus on our way to a desert sunset safari somewhere 45 minutes drive from the city. Since my camera isn’t that great in moving situations, I had to filter the colours of […]

Arabian Nights in the desert outside Dubai.

Arabian Nights

Arabian Nights is, perhaps, associated with talented belly dancers showing off their dancing prowess to the delight of the crowd (mostly men?) while breathing their hookah in and out. Throw it with an rhythm of the inviting arabic music and the air is filled with amorous desires for mid-eastern beauties with hypnotizing, tantalizing gazes that would stick […]

Burj Khalifa is the building with most floors!

Burj Khalifa Facade- The Tallest Building in the World

Burj Khalifa in Dubai is the world’s tallest building. Or tower. From a distance, it looks like a futuristic spire that goes or points nowhere but up. It is Dubai’s most-famous structure, eclipsing Burj Al-Arab, the world’s first 7-star hotel. It is Dubai’s centre of attraction or the city’s “apple of the eye.” It is the most […]
