2 years ago i visited Dubai and i rated the skyline with a 5.
Now i was in Dubai again and i give the skyline a 6.

I am a Dubai fan from the bottom of my heart and i am 100% sure that Dubais skyline will be a perfect 10 in some years but not now.

Dubai has several skylines. The SZR is still without any depth. The Business Bay and the DIFC will change that but right now there is no real depht.

The disavantage of the Dubai Marina skyline is the lack of icon towers. But this will change, too (Almas Tower, The Torch, Infinity Tower).

Many skyscrapers in Dubai are nearly completed but there are still no people, so the windows are dark at night. This will change in the future, too.

Many things will change in the future, so let`s wait before you rate the skyline with a 9 or a 10.

9.5/10! I love Dubai.. But some buildings just aren't my type. Burj Al Arab and the Burj Dubai is awesome though.

This instant city is as good as a noodle soup. It's good while it is hot. I gave it a 3 for filling up my appetite for *****- looking buildings.

8,5/10.

Dubai has a lot of nice skyscrapers, but at the moment the skyline looks a bit to be formed upon a pattern. Because of that the skyline is not so exciting like for instance Hongkong's.
But it will be fun to study the development of the city.
