Burj Khalifa

Thursday 20th October 2016

From whatever angle you look, the magnificent Burj Khalifa is outstanding. It’s architecture, dimensions, finishing, aesthetic all combine effortlessly. Glimmering in the city’s perpetual sunrays, the steel and glass tower stands as the proud centerpiece of the Emirate of Dubai. We residents love staring at it, walking around it, photographing it and when flush with money, eat on its lower levels’ Armani Hotel.

Next door is Souk Al Bahar; an Arabic-style retail, residential and dining destination located in the heart of the Downtown Dubai, overlooking The Dubai Fountain.
Meaning ‘Market of the Sailor,’ Souk Al Bahar derives its name from its souk-style architecture, which features natural stone corridors, high archways, subdued lighting, and a unique waterfront location on Burj Lake.

Today we decide to explore the view up high, simply by walking around Souk Al Bahar, even dipping ourselves into one of its cool pools. For a resident of eight years, what I found up in the Dubai sky was breathtaking…

About Alice

I run, I jump, I sing, I dance. Whether climbing trees, walls or stairs I do it at a clip. When out, my date is always Trusty Nikon (who never lets me down in the attire stakes; so smart in his black, with a pop of red!). Where does it lead, this love affair of mine? Well, its lead me to Dubai, via the matrimonial aisle, thanks to a gorgeous husband who whisked me from Coogee beach, Sydney into the Arabian Peninsula - to my new home, Dubai. I am a freelance writer and photographer and my wish is to snap away, to scribe and to share it all with you. Enjoy.
