Lovely pic Emm an amazing place
Never been there, but I'm sure it's warm.
I think I need a holiday looking at that...If only I had a spare month to laze around! Maybe next year...
I was about to shriek when did u go there!!! Then saw the archives bit :D lol
I love going into my archives -- nice shot.
great shot! beautiful place.
Wow... Burj Al Arab,a famous landmark of Dubai. A luxury hotel in the world. Enjoy your vacation and share with us your trip in Dubai! Fabulous Shot!
It's a spectacular hotel, I once saw it (on TV...) and I can't say I like the inside of the building, but the facade is really nice. Love this photo, it's such a unique view.
Curious what your impression was of Dubai. I would like to go but from its reputation for the rich etc, not sure I'd find much to like.
What a beautiful view! I've always wanted to visit the Burj Al Arab. Did you go inside?
Is that an actual building in the background? Wow, that's awesome.
Fantastic shot, Emm! Nice capture of the first and only 7-star hotel in the world.The weekend is almost here. Looking forward to it?Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!
Totally coincidentally I mentioned Dubai in my post on skyscrapers yesterday. It now has the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa.
And what I *meant* to add was, your shot is a wonderful contrast between modern and traditional styles.
That looks like somewhere I'd like to be - did you actually manage to have a snoop around inside the hotel itself?
Isn't this the place with the hotel with the swimming pool on it's roof?
