Visual Travel Diary
Dubai (دبي) is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
It is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country.
The city has become iconic for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings, in particular the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
Here’s a selection of pics from my Visual Travel Diary.
“Pilgrims from all over the world were making their way to the place deemed the pearl of the Middle East. The city was reminiscent of a modern-day Persepolis. Its buildings, like towering pillars, tested the sky’s limit. The evenly paved roads belched with the smell of new tarmac, as if a million masons woke up every morning and by hand lay asphalt one grain at a time. People of all colors, ethnicities, creed and social statuses came bearing money, knowledge or experience in order to build their legacies in the new kingdom, sprouting out of the desert. Dubai had arrived.” ― Soroosh Shahrivar,
