Dubai is the largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf.
My sightseeing begins at Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building. Here I admire the view from observation decks on the 124th, 125th and 148th floors. Before leaving the tower I wait for the sun to set behind the Burj Al Arab Hotel and watch the lights come on in the city.
After descending from Burj Khalifa I admire the world famous Dubai Fountain at the base of the tower.
I enjoy a very scenic seaplane flight over the city.
Throughout the video there are views of this immaculate city from the top deck of an open-top, double-deck bus.
I cross the Dubai Creek on an historic abra and visit a souk in the area.
I visit the massive Dubai Mall which is the largest mall in the world by total area. I walk around beautiful Burj Khalifa Lake outside the mall.
At sunrise I float over the Arabian Desert in a hot air balloon.
My visit to Palm Jumeirah includes a stay at the spectacular Atlantis The Palm Resort.
I enjoy a scenic sunset cruise around the Dubai Marina on a wooden dhow.
I board the Splendour of the Seas for an exotic cruise around the Persian Gulf.
I have dinner at the Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa and enjoy the Dubai Fountain while dining on the restaurant's balcony.
I watch the spectacular New Year's Eve fireworks around Burj Khalifa from my hotel room at the Sofitel Dubai Downtown.
I ride the Dubai Metro to the financial district along Sheikh Zayed Road.
The video ends at the Dubai International Airport where I board another Emirates A380 for my flight back to JFK.
