Nice view on the Dubai skyline taken from the entrence of the Dubai Mall.
Dusk behind the impressive skyline of Dubai.
One of the many sharks in the giant aquarium at the Dubai mall. Understandable, that he looks kinda pissed off with all the fresh food watching and taking pictures of him.
Sculpture at the entrance of the dragon mall in dubai. You'll get anything in dragon mall as long as its faked. I still regret that I missed the opportunity to buy an original Romex clock.
A must see: A skiing hall in a country with temperatures of 40°C and above. The final stage of megalomania and an unforgettable experience.
Boat trip on the Dubai creek to the old souqe (market).
A small, picturesqueMosque on the way from Dubai to Abu Dhabi.
This one's just a replica of an ancient arab fort. Some photos from inside the museum follow...
Oddly enough, there where only a few visitors at the museum.
Settlement replica at the museum of local history in Abu Dhabi.
Bedouin Tent at an open air museum. Kinda unbeliefable that most people lived in bedouin tents like this before Dubai made its wealth with oil - which started in 1972. According to wikipedia the total bedouin population is about 200.000 in the UAE.
A desert well replica at the museum of local history in Abu Dhabi. Thats how most of the settlements looked like before 1972.
View from the top of Burj Khalifa down to Dubai city. The black pattern inside the pool in front of Burj Khalifa is a huge fountain. Take a look at Burj Khalifa's wikipedia page for some more amazing details.
Burj Khalifa top view is amazing! Standing on the mother of all sky crappers (a.k.a.. Burj Khalifa) and looking down at some of the other sky crappers of Dubai city.
Burj khalifa top view at its best! This one is an even better view of baby sky crappers as you can only see them on top of Burj Khalifa.
One last view from the top of Burj Khalifa down to Dubai.
Hotel Raffles in Dubai. Famous for its pyramid shape. The whole area around it is egypt themed.
Some areas in Dubai remeber on Las Vegas...
The entrance to the Sheikh Zayed grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. With 224 to 174 meters in size, it's the worlds third largest Mosque.
There's space for 40000 (thats 40K!) worshippers to pray inside the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
The court of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque with one of its white marble minarets.
The linking of symmetry is omnipresent at the Sheikh Zayed grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
Thats the same candelabrum as the one in the previous picture, just shot from beneath it.
One last shot of the beautiful candelabrum inside the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
An other swarovski chandelier inside the Sheikh Zayed Mosque at Abu Dhabi. It is 10 m in diameter and 15 m height.
By now this Swarovski chandelier is only the third largest chandelier in the world, but it once was the largest (what else have you expected?).
Hypnotic view up to a perfectly symmetric cupola roof inside the Sheikh Zayed Mosque.
The mother of all luxury hotels.
An other impressive sight inside the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. The carpet on the floor measures 5,627 square meters and is (once again) the biggest in the world.
