Where can I find blueprints/plans for each and every type of apartment in BK (1-4 beds; or even bigger, if it exists...)
I'm not buying any - don't be jealous Just my curiosity, how they look like

The hotel has been open for years now. It's a dry hotel BTW (no serving of alcohol)

UPDATE after 5 years !

Just got this email yesterday, what a joke

Good Morning,

I am emailing you on behalf of the photo department with National Geographic Books Division. We are currently in the process of organizing the files for our book, Atlas of The Middle East 2nd Edition, for which you provided an image. It appears we do not have a permissions form for you on file. Our understanding is that you agreed to provide with us with the image without payment and we would like to confirm this. We will be sending a form for you to fill out but would like to have confirmation from you first for our reference.


Thank you,

Apparently there has been some misunderstanding between you and them (which you should clear years ago if payment delayed) but still ng for me is popular magazine publishing best articles with pictures made by worlds top class photographers and I actually would be very proud if my photo would be published by them.

I'm just little disappointed they apparently have some mess in information department.

Believe me, it was on purpose, every detail in the deal was crystal clear. NG sucks monkey balls
It's just not worth the energy to go after them for such a petty thing...

I'm sure the deal was clear, but maybe it just got lost somewhere in the Grand Bureaucracy It happens. Anyhow, I just feel this is a bit unfair bashing at the institution with most ambitious guys in the business. I just have huge respect for them, and I love theirs work. Maybe business guys behind ng are not that ambitious

I remember I sent them few emails after but never got any answers, its not about the money , they have just lost their credibility.

Anyway , I wont send them anything again without advance payment and I dont really care that my photo is there or not..

Just wondering what kind of Burj Khalifa photo they want to use in the 2012 Atlas from 2007

Also this email after five years was a joke

I was looking through their reservations page and noticed that. There's a bar in the lobby but it only said juices and other non-alcoholic drinks (which for a hotel was a little surprising). I don't drink though so no big deal

When you look at all these pics (some of them really breathtaking) it all seems so quiet and empty, but when I visited Dubai a few weeks back its sooooo busy esp around the Burj/Mall area. Why has nobody captured life around the burj? The multicultural atmosphere and the warmth around it is really amazzzing.....

The area in the workdays is empty in the weekends and in eids are full and thousands at the area to watch the fountain
