Dubai: Pictures & Images
Dubai is one of the 7 Emirates(states) which make the country of UAE (United Arab of Emirates). I got a chance to visit dubai for an office project.
Due to relative scarcity of oil, dubai city is developing a huge, modern business market in middle east which consists of minicities like internet, media, knowledge, festival cities attracting business houses, students and tourists from all over the world. The scale of development is phenomenal. Some of these dubai pictures showcase the phenomenon.
Dubai's land-reclamation projects the three Palm Islands of Jumeira, Jebel Ali and Deira; The World archipelago; and the Dubai Waterfront will be the largest man-made offshore structures in the world, housing villas, hotels, malls and holiday resorts. These structures will be visible from space. Dubai is also planning a travel destination like Las Vegas.
The variety of cars you see is in dubai is a treat. All the latest and greatest are speeding all over dubai highways. Its a treat for photograpy. With clear skies all year round its a treat to do photography in dubai.
