Part Three: Amazing pictures from above - the desert
What’s On serialises Wouter Kingma’s book, Dubai Aerial Tour. Part Three shows professional pictures of Dubai and the desert that surrounds the Emirates.
The beauty of Dubai and its architecture isn’t exactly a tough sell; it’s a city of breathtaking, record-breaking buildings stunning panoramas and feats of man-made brilliance unrivalled anywhere else in the world. But what Wouter Kingma has done is package this wonder in a way not previously seen, in his book, ‘Dubai Aerial Tour’, which What’s On is serialising this week.
In Part One we showed you Dubai Marina, JLT and JBR from the skym as well as give you more of the story behind Wouter’s amazing new book.
In Part Two we went out to sea to bring you unobstructed views of the beautiful beaches and vast coastlines, including The Palm and World Islands.
