The previous Sunday (21/03) I walked all the Boulevard, from the corner of Dubai Mall to The Palace Hotel ... and that after I had already spent more then 2 hours around the Burj and the lake promenade ... and ended up spending another one afterword.

Talking about cars, the underground parking of Burj Khalifa is operational, working or is still closed until the opening of the interior areas of BK (Armani residences etc)?

Thank you guys (again). I have many, many more night pics from different angles and locations, it will take time but I'll eventually post many more of them.

Nice one.

4,340,789,952 pixels uploading right now. Incredibly, it only took an hour and ten minutes to stitch.

Annoyingly though, the top of the Burj has been chopped off! I'll try it again with a different projection setting later to see if it helps.

Well he should upload to a file sharing site to preserve the quality. Wait, NVM, you can't upload it any other sites than Gigapan's site.
