Hey, it looks quite dusty or polluted. What's that? Pollution?
Nice pics, I've never seen any city in the middle east from this perspective and it looks very very modern

I think Dubai is the best looking city in the Gulf. It has nice skyscrapers and a lot of projects going on. I've never been to Dubai, but it sure looks better than kuwait city or doha ( I've been to both) not to say they're not nice cities but, I like Dubai better. Greaty pictures by the way.
