Emirates Towers Hotel

Dubai, inside a hotel room in Emirates Towers Hotel overlooking Sheikh Zayed Road. Sheikh Zayed road is lined with high rise office and apartment buildings and quite a few five star hotels. The roads are always busy during rush hour. When it isn't rush hour, the road is like a race track with crazy speedy drivers scaring the normal drivers. Sometimes it's like a scene from Wacky Races.

Dubai, inside a hotel room in Emirates Towers Hotel overlooking Sheikh Zayed Road. Sheikh Zayed road is lined with high rise office and apartment buildings and quite a few five star hotels. The roads are always busy during rush hour. When it isn’t rush hour, the road is like a race track with crazy speedy drivers scaring the normal drivers. Sometimes it’s like a scene from Wacky Races.

But from a view above, you see something different. You see what is hiding behind the high rise towers. A flat area that is dotted with houses, one part with extravagant looking villas and the rest is like a shanty town. Also a great view of the sea, a good escape from the urban madness. From the ground level, one almost forgets all of this, but seeing this from a view above, I’m reminded my city is full of contradictions and contrasts.

So to get this view, you need to stay in this hotel, or know someone staying there, or befriend someone that lives in one of the high rise towers.
