Dubai by Mavic Mini 2


Cinematic Travel Footage - Dubai


New contributor dronefate used a DJI Mavic Mini 2 to bring us this fantastic aerial portrait of the Persian Gulf city-state of Dubai.  The video alternates between shots of the city's modern skyline and the Empty Quarter desert which surrounds it.  At the 1:05 mark, there's a nice shot of Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper, and at 1:53 you'll see the Dubai Water Canal Bridge.  Other featured locations include the Marina District skyscrapers at the 2:40 mark and a nighttime timelapse sequence of the city's main highway artery.  

Dubai in the Fog


A Foggy Morning in Dubai


It is hard to appreciate just how tall Dubai's skyscrapers are without some reference point.  One such reference is the clouds which occasionally show up in the form of fog rolling in to the city.  Top content creator and pilot Moadh Bukhash used a drone to show the city immersed in a thick blanket of fog.  The aerial views of the skyscrapers towering above these clouds gives you a sense of the height to which these giants reach; the tallest (Burj Khalif) has been the world's tallest skyscraper since 2010.  

Dubai's Marina District


Dubai 2020


Much of the excitement of Dubai can be found in its ultra-modern Marina District, a development along the Persian Gulf coast a bit to the southwest of the downtown.  It's home to four of the five tallest skyscrapers in the city, the capital of its namesake emirate which is part of the United Arab Emirates.  Construction of the Marina District began in earnest following the Great Recession; only the first phase is complete as of mid-2020.  Check out the Marina District skyscrapers from above in this fantastic drone video by mohit.kingra.  

Dubai's Skyline at Night


Dubai Drop-speed


Possibly the only sight more impressive than the Dubai skyline during the day is the city center of this Middle Eastern metropolis viewed at night.  The brilliance of thousands of electric lights emanating from a forest of some of the world's tallest buildings is truly "electric".  In this video, award-winning contributor and drone pilot Moadh Bukhash combined some amazing night drone footage with amazing editing to produce this brilliant aerial video of the desert city during the Arabian night.  

Skyscrapers in the Desert


Dubai Evolution: From Desert to Skyscrapers


Viewing the skyline of Dubai, one can't help but wonder how this major metropolis was carved out of the desert in the Persian Gulf nation of the United Arab Emirates.  Award-winning content creator and pilot Bachir_Photo_Phactory uses a drone to show us visually the transition from the dry and desolate desert surrounding the city to the urban oasis that is Dubai.  The video includes astounding bird's eye views of Dubai’s most prominent skyscrapers, including the Burj Khalifa, the tallest tower in the world.

60 Seconds over Dubai


Dubai | Welcome to My World


Contributor Moadh_Bukhash used a DJI Phantom drone to create this beautiful 60 second aerial tour of his home city Dubai.  This city in the United Arab Emirates is one of only nine cities in the top two categories of Alpha Cities designated by Globalization and World Cities Research Network.  You'll get some epic top-down views of the downtown streets, as well as some amazing views of the Burj Khalifa tower, the world's tallest building, which is nearly 30% taller than its closest competitor.

Dubai Top-Downs


Downtown Dubai


While the UAE city of Dubai is impressive from any angle, perhaps the most impressive views of the city are of a top-down variety.  The views from a drone flying near or above the tops of the skyscrapers (many of which are over 300 meters, or about 1k ft.) looking straight down on the city's street grid are truly mind-blowing.  Exhibit A is this amazing aerial video edit by contributor Moadh Bukhash, which shows the central business district of the towering desert city from an entirely new perspective.

Palm Jebel Ali: Delayed Artificial Island


Palm Jebel Ali - Dubai


Around the turn of the millennium, the Gulf coast city of Dubai conceived of a plan to create over 500 km (around 320 mi.) of new coastline by building three giant artificial islands in the Jumeira coastal district.  Only the first of these projects - Palm Jumeirah - was actually completed; the other two projects - Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira - have been on hold since the 2008 financial crisis.  In this drone video by Moadh Bukhash, you'll get a nice aerial view of the Palm Jebel Ali project, which was to have been the largest of the three. 

Palm Jumeirah: Dubai's Artificial Islands


Dubai Palm Island 2015


Dubai's Palm Islands project is a tribute to the power of engineering.  The first of these three massive artificial islands, Palm Jumeirah, was built in the early 2000's and sports residential and resort developments.  They are part of Jumeirah, a coastal area of hotels and low rise residential units.  Contributor Danny Batchelor used his DJI Phantom 3 Pro drone to create an amazing aerial view of this civil engineering and architectural wonder, which is built in the shape of a gigantic palm tree.
