We are back with the Russian guys who climbed the Great Pyramide in Egypt recently. This time they are in Dubai – no way this city can disappoint anyone especially being observed from the roofs.
These are the First Interchange on Sheikh Zayed Road and Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
Dubai impresses much when you look at it from a plane flying low – you see all these huge highways in the middle of the desert, numerous street networks without houses (they will appear as quarters in future). Everything is so big in Dubai!
One does not need to be a sheikh to experience all pleasures of Dubai!
More than half of the population of Dubai are immigrants. People from other rich countries come here to work. When you come down to the subway you see so many different faces there. But it is so crowded that it’s quite a challenge to use it if you are not used to something like this.
Some tourists come with a single aim – to go shopping to Dubai Mall, the biggest shopping centre on the planet and to see Burj Khalifa, of course.
A man from Europe is having rest with two Filipino women on the roof of the hotel.
People are not allowed to walk hand in hand in the streets, to kiss in public. But a woman is never forced to wear a burqa if she doesn’t want to.
Climbing roofs of Dubai is a rather risky undertaking, laws are stricter than in Russia here.
There are a lot of roofs with pools on top, viewing platforms and helipads. Roofs are not locked just because nobody will ever go up for jumping down, hang an opposition poster or hide with a sniper rifle. People have no paranoia at all.

Dubai is a splendid city. Everything is real here, we mean beauty is real. They think about functionality less when plan to build something new, they are more interested in its exterior beauty.
Quite surprisingly free WiFi can be rarely found in Dubai.
