  • Dubai Festival City Marina

    Dubai Festival City Marina
    Living in Dubai has its ups and downs, while the malls will always be every shopaholic's paradise, it can get tiring too. In search of new things to do, I soon found myself...at another mall. This time, at the Dubai Festival City. Thankfully, aside from the usual shops, it also has a lovely promenade and marina where you can see the yachts of the rich and famous.
  • Bastakiya (Dubai)

    Bastakiya (Dubai)
    Away from the hustle and bustle of the modern Dubai lies a small and tranquil area that is filled with wind tower buildings. The area is called Bastakiya and wind towers buildings are the traditional homes unique to the countries around the Arabian Gulf. Wind towers are built on the rooftops to funnel air into the houses to cool them in the summer (basically, an old fashioned air conditioner).
  • Burj Dubai - The highest tower of the world

    Burj Dubai - The highest tower of the world
    The tallest of ´em all. Oil is money and money is useful. The sheikhs in Dubai understood that time is playing against them and that their oil-resources are vanishing sooner then they can count to three. Therefore they started to build the most astonishing buildings and sights to attract more and more tourists. They have the only 7star Hotel with the Burj al Arab. They have the island-groups the palm and the world in the shape of their names. Michael Schumacher and David Beckham will be neighbours on their private islands.
  • JBR Walk: the Place in Dubai to Walk or Be Seen Walking

    JBR Walk: the Place in Dubai to Walk or Be Seen Walking
    JBR Walk, the place in Dubai to walk or be seen walking. It's a must-see place in Dubai where real Dubaians actually live & hang out. Just a few years in Dubai and you can get jaded with the malls and shopping. In our quest to find something new, we always end up at JBR Walk near Dubai Marina. JBR Walk is a shoreline hi-rises adjoining Dubai Marina and faces the Arabian Sea. Along these tall skyscrapers by the beach is the famous JBR Walk.
  • Sohar Fort Musuem

    Sohar Fort Musuem
    This was the first stop on the touristy places that my folks brought me during my stay in Oman over the holidays. It is situated about a 10-minute drive from the city center and a couple hundred meters from the shoreline, or they what the call corniche. I was a bit disappointed when we read the poster on the door that it was closed for renovations. I would just have to settle shooting its perimeter.
  • Emirates Terminal 3

    Emirates Terminal 3
    Colossal. That is how I would describe Emirates’ dedicated terminal in Dubai. After hours in economy class, it was such a delight to see wide open spaces to walk about; The map said that you can walk from end-to-end in about 20 minutes, but I doubt that because of the shear volume of fellow passengers that gets in the way.
  • Al Khalidiya - A Silent Oasis in Abu Dhabi

    Al Khalidiya - A Silent Oasis in Abu Dhabi
    My first location article in Abu Dhabi – a first of many, definitely. In Khalidiya, you can be in close proximity to schools, shopping destinations, hospitals and the beach, and yet feel cocooned in a private community. It's a relatively quiet place with sleek apartment buildings, green parks and a multitude of retail shops of all types.
  • Wollongong Beach

    Wollongong Beach
    This is a popular beach for kite surfers. Lots of great kite surfing
  • Ski Dubai

    Ski Dubai
    The Emirates are too over the top to be comprehended by a simple mind like me. But one thing I understood perfectly so far: deliver entertainment and sensations no matter of the costs. One perfect example for this is the ski Dubai! As we know, Dubai is in the middle of the desert! Desert equals sun equals heat equals no snow equals question. Answer: the sheikhs just build an amusement dome where there is a ski-world.
  • Emirates Towers Hotel

    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.
  • Al Qala'a Handicraft Souk, Oman

    Al Qala'a Handicraft Souk, Oman
    Apart from the usual malls and commercial establishments in Sohar, I wanted to see something unique that the town has to offer, and found this souk after hours on Flickr. One afternoon, I was able to locate it just a 5-minute drive from the city centre.
