Stood at the waters edge, with my back to the Burj Khalifa, this was the view across the lake. The Address is the super tall skyscraper, in the middle of the photograph. This 63 floor hotel dominates the skyline at over 300 metres high. To the left, is the world’s largest shopping mall, Dubai Mall. On the right, Old Town Island. As you can tell from the pattern on the bed of the lake, this is an artificial lake. It seemed more like a giant swimming pool than a lake, although obviously swimming was forbidden.
