Dubai's Skyscraper's Aren't Your Standard New York Fare

Beautiful Vista In Dubai

Don't get me wrong, New York has some beautiful vistas and if you've never taken a bite out of the big apple, I'm all for it, but the view from Dubai is a whole other cup of tea. You haven't really seen what the world's skyscrapers can offer if you've limited yourself to local fare, so why not look out across one of the world's most beautiful cities while you can?

Google has climbed to the top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa skyscraper in an ambitious project to capture views from the giant structure.

The web giant sent its street view cameras 828m above the city to record the stunning images.

Tarek Abdalla, from Google’s marketing team, said: "This is the first time we’ve captured a skyscraper on Street View – making Google Maps even more comprehensive and useful for you."
