Hi friends... i was recently in Dubai for 15 days .I romed there and utilised my whole 15 days to see how Dubai is growing.....i saw SZR,Maina,Atlantis Hotel and Palm Jumerah,Burj al Arab,Museum,Deserts ..ect but i pay special visit to Burj Dubai and seen whole construction site ......it was just openig of Dubai Mall over there....i thinck that Dubai is having is having Largest and most no of Malls in the world......

Burj Dubai and SZR was clearly seen from my stay in Diera next to Carlton Tower on Baniyas Road.Every day and neight the gorgeous sky line is looking beautiful and more beautiful.I have about 700 Photos but i will post later cause Internet Speed is lower .
Its seems that speed of Palm Deira is sluggish as its beeen a lot time since it started. i dont know about Palm Jabel Ali as i missed to go to Free Zone.
I also visit Gold Sukh biggest Gold Market in the world...as i found gold hangging in every shop like steel in scrap yard.....

Culwulla: I have stopped taking pics as there has been absolutely zero activity in almost two weeks now, and it would only be a pic of the same same.

The crane on top rarely moves, and very little lift activity to the top.

Is this a major design change for your graphics
