An aerial view of down town Dubai.

Can you see those tall buildings at the centre of the picture.. that is where the Sheikh Zayed road is!  Those sky scrapers are standing tall up to 60-80 floors or even more! There is Dubai Creek, Bur Dubai, if you are sharp enough, you can even spot Burj Al Arab, the famous seven star hotel and Palm Jumeirah!

    Wooo! Spectacular scene of creek side Dubai and the distant downtown—a new view of Dubai-partially sunlit over concrete builds!
    Having known Dubai sparingly for some time, this is indeed a totally new view for me… 🙂
