I chose a Hostel located close to the Dubai Marina for one reason, to capture photos like these:
The later image is from the rooftop bar at the Hilton Hotel. There are many such bars but all urge you to consume their overpriced goods and it is a little tricky if all you want is a photo.
The only thing that really bugged me in Dubai was the whole city seems to be one giant construction site… Obviously a city grows and at some point a skyscraper building is being built or a street is being repaired. Dubai though doesn’t build 1 or 2 skyscrapers simultaneously but rather what feels like 100!! This is totally crazy! Considering most high rise buildings have been built in the recent 15 years or so this makes me think how the city will look like in the next 5 years. Below you see one of those construction sites at night about at 8 pm still working and making the city to what it is now.
