This is a throwback for me- to one of my most varied cultural experiences. I'm fascinated with the diversity of Dubai's urban landscape as a melting pot culminating in the fete of industrial design forged amongst traditional exteriors. 

Was able to witness just how juxtaposed elements of the traditional were with the modern from the view at the top of the Burj Khalifa (below); the tallest building in the world. The monumental presence of Dubai's infamous skyscrapers were dwarfed like miniatures in a sand pit desert. 

This viewpoint encapsulates the city; the weight of industrial progress is unnerving amongst a cacophony of sand and windy heat.

The view is amazing and the site was purely unforgettable.
