Dubai 2014 Photo Diary: Cityscapes and Yellow Boats

Dubai is especially famous for its architecture. Right now, majority of the world's most revolutionary buildings stand in this very city and every structure you see leaves you in awe. Now, with this in mind, the people of Dubai found a new way to showcase the amazing buildings and that is through the Yellow Boat! Read more to see the amazing view of the cityscape like no other from the water! :)

We were driven to this small marina and from here, you can already admire all the pretty buildings around you!



We made our way down to the docks and headed for the Yellow Boat Tour.

You can go to their website to learn how to schedule your own Yellow Boat Experience when you visit Dubai! :D



After a short explanation of how the safety gear works, you're off! Unfortunately, the guide doesn't really explain what buildings you're going to be seeing so enjoy the photos I took of the amazing skyscrapers.



The Yellow Boat is nothing if not incredibly fast. I could barely keep my eyes open because of the strong winds. Also, the waves were quite strong at the time and we were basically bouncing around. It got a little nauseating at times, but this only happened in the beginning.

The Yellow Boat stopped right in front of the Atlantis at The Palm in Jumeirah. I'll be blogging about my stay here soon! But as for now, here's a preview of the impossibly beautiful architecture.

Our second stop was the Burj al Arab which is inspired by the sail of a boat. It's actually a seven-star hotel, which I'll also be blogging about soon! Haha!

On to the cityscapes!



My personal favorite is this twisted one that's just so mesmerizing. All I could think of at the time was how difficult it must have been to manually draft this out! #ArchitectureStudentProblems



If you appreciate architecture or just want to see how incredibly developed the city of Dubai is, I greatly recommend trying out the Yellow Boat. I'm sure you'll find yourself in constant awe!

'Til next time!
