Virtual Tour of Dubai City, UAE • 360° Aerial Panorama
This panorama can be opened in several different resolutions. High resolution panorama with the best quality is about 7 Mb large and it is suitable for fast internet connections and modern computers. For slower internet and old weak computers we created the smaller low resolution panorama. Some small details have been sacrificed but the size of low resolution panorama is nomore than 2 Mb.
Last time we showed you bird's-eye view panoramas from above Palm Jumeira and The World artificial islands in Dubai. This time we want to show you several panoramas of Dubai City.
So, let us to introduce Dubai City
The origins of Dubai trace back to the VII century, however few people associate the largest city of the United Arab Emirates with ancient times. Dubai is best described as "the City of the Future": nowhere else on the planet you will find so many incredible architectural constructions that are ultra-modern and even ahead of our times.
Here is just a short list of Dubai's attractions: Burj Khalifa skyscraper that looks like stalagmite or a desert flower with thin petals; Seven-star Burj Al Arab hotel, shaped like a sail, rises on a special artificial island (hotel room prices at Burj Al Arab start from one thousand dollars per night!); 150-meter musical fountain that lifts 83 thousand liters of water up in the air while performing Arabic and international musical hits. Breathtaking group of artificial islands: Palm islands (a gigantic tree built off the coast of the Persian Gulf) and World Islands, shaped as the Earth's continents.
All this is just a beginning! Besides its attractions, Dubai is known as a shopper's heaven. The largest shopping and entertainment center in the Middle East - "Dubai Mall" - also features one of the world's largest aquariums. "Dubai Marina" is the largest and the most exclusive yacht harbor in the world.
Note: all interesting things in Dubai either hold a world-record title in size or are pioneers in its areas. Sometimes, both things are true. For example, Ski Dubai, the indoors ski resort is not only the largest in the region, but the first one in the entire Middle East where one could enjoy skiing. One can enjoy skiing in the midst of 30 degree heat in the center of the desert - isn't it impressive? This is exactly what Dubai intends to do: to surprise, impress and bewilder with its novel ideas.
Even the weather in Dubai participates in this race for the "best of the best" title. Due to its average temperature of 35,5ºC, Dubai is one of the hottest cities in the world. Finally, beaches of Dubai have made this emirate one of the most popular resorts in the world.
Turning back to its history, a long time ago Dubai started out as exporter of pearls, but at the end of XX century it couldn't afford to act on such a small scale. Nowadays the Emirate holds a leading position in gold jewelry manufacturing, and gold prices in Dubai are such that very few can resist the temptation of bringing home half of a suitcase filled with jewelry made of this precious metal...
In short, Dubai is a paradise city, a page from a science fiction book, a true picture of how even the most bizarre and ambitious ideas may be implemented into reality. We hope that the panoramas and photos of Dubai will transmit the incredible greatness of the unique and the most famous city of the United Arab Emirates.

"Exeptional photography and presentation. I would not call it 'Dubai City' since unfortunately it only shows a fraction of Dubai . May I suggeest instead of showing so many impressions of the World and the Palm it would be fantastic if you would be able to add the exiciting areas and views around Burj Al Arab and especially Burj Khalifa and additionally the original old part of Dubai around the Dubai Creek. Then people would be blown away by the beauty and diversity of architectural masterpieces and the original historic Dubai. Thank you for this incredible positive experience of beautiful impressions around our beautiful world."
Anita Du Preez, United Arab Emirates
Anna, AirPano: Hello, Anita. Many thanks for your opinion. Regarding your suggestion, unfortunately, it is forbidden to fly over Burj Al Arab and especially Burj Khalifa. Regards.
