Doha, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi

Skyline of "New Doha". None of this was here 10 years ago.

Bored outside the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha.

Inside the control room of Al Jazeera Arabic. Time management was never so important.

Outside the Al Jazeera English building. Al Jazeera was created (and based) in Doha in 1996. Al Jazeera English is even younger.

Al Jazeera English newsroom. For such an international network, their operation is quite small.

Some of the group on the corniche in Doha.

Night view of Doha skyline.

View of the lively Doha souk. A great place to sit, drink tea, eat camel sandwiches, and hang out.

In front of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.

A small view of Dubai Mall, the largest mall in the world.

Walking through the souk in Dubai.

On the edge of Dubai Creek, which cuts through the city and was very important for trade in the past.

View of the sky slope in the Mall of the Emirates from the metro.

Buildings in Dubai.

More buildings.

Close to the city limits of Dubai. It just turns to desert.

Looking at the sky slope inside the Mall of the Emirates. It was too expensive for a college student to go...

The sun sets on the Burj al-Arab, the world's only 7-star hotel. It costs close to $80 just to go inside (also too expensive for a college student).

The Sheikh Zayed Mosque. It can hold 40,000 people and cost $545 million to build.

Outside the mosque.

  1. Going in Abu Dhabi and Dubai woint disappoint you in terms of the things that you would like to see. Buildings are abound almost every corner in the city. Magnificent buildings at that.
