Dubai is a city of records. Located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf it is the capital of the Emirate of Dubai, one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates. It is often one of the dream destinations of people admiring its stunning coast and beaches but also its unique architecture.

I tried to capture the essence of the desert, coast and the cityscape of this exotic place. Visiting the highest building in the world, Burj Khalifa, offers probably the most iconic and impressive view of the city with its surrounding natural sites and many skyscrapers. After a day full of dune bashing, enjoying rich local culture and delicious meals, nothing will charm you more than experiencing the sunset at the Jumeirah beach, right by the Burj Al Arab, the only 7 star hotel in the world. Built in the shape of a sailboat, this third tallest hotel in the world stands on an artificial island connected to the mainland by just a private curving bridge.
