Dubai's modern skyline 03 May 2016
About this photo
The calm blue skies of the United Arab Emirates are marked with three of Dubai's most famous landmarks: The Burj Khalifa, Burj al Arab, and the Jumeriah Beach Hotel.
The Burj Khalifa, which is in the background, is the tallest building on earth at 828 metres. To put that in context, 10 Burj Khalifas stacked on top of each other would still be shorter than Mount Everest.
