Communication in Dubai is very difficult

It's nice to see some real photos of Dubai, instead of just skyline, airport and 7 star hotel photos. Not that I want to criticize Dubai, but I just want to get a more realistic feeling for the place.

Exactly! Actually my opinions of Dubai have improved after this thread as this is the first time iv ever seen pics of actual Dubai, rather than the tacky disneyland type feel of the usual Dubai pics.

The place is not really empty, i just like to make this pic with no people in it to make the pics more mystic and more nice. If someone with traditional clothes walked truh this area i would make a pic but there were only people with western clothes. So i waited before they left.

Day 2 :)





I like the architecture in Dubai.


But not every building :D


This is near Dubai Marina




Dubai Marina


Someone found his paradise


What`s the big deal with Dubai ?!
My answear


This are the people that give Dubais future the shape.


How will it look in 5 years ?


Some buildings are build and they look nice.


I should be a propaganda photograph :D


I think you know it :D
But i couldn`t get inside even with money >_<


Madinat Jumeirah


You can see The Palm Jumeirah in the background


I took this pic from a forbidden place *g*
But i don`t really care


Look how small the palms are


Back to the SZR

if you post these pics earlier there wouldn't the dicussions like "what's so special about dubai?".

those skyscrapers are REALLY REALLY nice, the yeah, the city is so green, i dont care if it's natural or not, as long as it's green.

it is a little empty though, it doesnt have that kind of hustle feelings , but it's very organized and clean, which i like.

i only saw the some of the pics btw, due to my slow internet connection, and they already impressed me.
