You should post your images of Dubai in the Dubai subforum, not here. But nice pictures anyway!

robertaas I'm going to Dubai too and seeing your pictures makes clearer to me how Dubai looks on other places as the Sheik Al Zayed Road. So thanks for them a lot

I enjoyed the photos even if the Burj Dubai was so far away in most of the pictures you could not see it. ;-)

I was amazed by the number of people in the different malls. It seemed to be the prefered evening activity for many. There was people everywhere and for some stores like Carrefour there was even a line to get into the store. And then there was a 1 hour line for the taxi from the shopping mall, where people were forming a line with full shopping carts straight across the mall.

Add huge aquariums with evil sharks and view to the burj and I'm sure the Dubaj Mall will be even as successfull.

Good illumination at top BD and good steel progress over the last 24 hours.

Shouldn't there be more building around the spire at the top? I thought it was supposed to come out of the top of the roof, not go parallel with the building. If you understand what I mean. :P

Nothing more to be added on to the top of the spire and steel floor progress full speed ahead I guess. We'll see more progress on steel floors than past few weeks.
