This series of photos will show you Dubai outside the festival walls.


A LOOK AT DOWNTOWN DUBAI’S TOWERING SKYSCRAPERS FROM POOLSIDE OF THE HABTOOR GRAND RESORT, WHERE MOST OF THE MEDIA WERE STAYING.
THE SKYLINE OF THE FUTURE. FOR EVERY BUILDING THAT’S FINSHED, THERE ARE AT LEAST THREE AROUND IT THAT ARE STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
HOW MANY CRANES CAN YOU FIND IN THIS SHOT? ACCORDING TO A REPORT, 30% OF THE WORLD’S CRANES ARE BEING USED IN DUBAI.
GIRDLOCK ON ONE OF DUBAI’S THREE MAIN ROADWAYS, AL SUFOUTH ROAD, CAUSED A LOT OF HEADACHES GETTING TO AND FROM EVENTS.
THREE MONORAILS ARE BEING BUILT IN HOPES TO ALLEVIATE THE TRAFFIC.
IN DUBAI NEWSPAPERS, ADS OF CLOONEY AND PITT ENDORSING PRODUCTS. SOMETHING MANY A-LIST STARS DON’T MIND DOING ABROAD.
A LOOK AT THE ARABIAN GULF COAST FROM THE JUMEIRAH BEACH HOTEL.
THE BURJ AL ARAB.
THE FOUNTAIN IN FRONT OF THE BURJ. AND FOR AN ADDED TOUCH, FLAMES SHOOT OUT FROM SIDE TOWERS PERIODICALLY.
THE SIGHT WHEN LOOKING UP INSIDE THE LOBBY OF THE BURJ. NOTE THE 24 KARAT GOLD RINGS AT THE BOTTOM.
