Being the worlds talles building with 829.8 meters (2,722 ft). The Burj Khalifa is situated in the Old Town Dubai area.

Dubai Mall has the record-setting choreographed fountain system set on the 30-acre manmade Burj Khalifa Lake. Illuminated by 6,600 lights and 25 color projectors, it is 275 m (902 ft) long and shoots water up to  164 m(500 ft) into the air accompanied by a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music. The Dubai fountain was increased by 275 meters in 2010.

Dubai backdrop

 

Dubai yesterday… this photograph shows how close to the “modern Dubai” you can find very interesting places that are not so shiny as most of this city… this place is a stone throw from Festival City but completely different from the pristine Mall. Here the yachts that are worth millions are build by Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. I love  places like these,  because you can always talk to very interesting people and get invited to have some “chai”.
