While I’m famously not a fan of Vegas, there’s something to be said for a city that can do bright, bold and flashy light displays in a tasteful manner. Dubai is such a city.
It’s oddly reminiscent of Disney World’s Electrical Parade, wouldn’t you say?
And what better vantage point from which to observe said skyline than an aerial lounge on the 63rd floor of one of the city’s most popular hotels? (Thanks to having friends like Johnny Jet who get nobodies like you into the hottest—and highest—table in Dubai.)
We later moved down to the VIP level to watch the fountain show from an outdoor patio and fully take advantage of the balmy Arabic night.
I’m a sucker for a fountain show, and I could have watched Dubai’s go all night long.
Next time, however, I’ll pack a tripod. Little makes me cringe more than blurry photos like these, doing little justice to an otherwise magnificent scene.
