Dubai Tower Thompson | In Photos



The Dubai Towers are the most mesmerizing piece of architecture that is to hit the world in this century, at least in my opinion. "The four towers, ranging from 54 to 97 floors, are clustered to form a choreographed sculpture, representing the movement of candlelight", the architect write in their press release from January this year. I love the structure of the building. It looks so complex. I love the curves of the towers and how they look like they are just slightly twisting. The twists and waves are extremely subtle, but you can't possible not notice them. The effect is so elegant it leaves you breathless. Honestly, I'd make a trip to Dubai only to look at these towers (and manage some shopping as well!). The four towers, ranging from 54 to 97 floors take inspiration from a flickering candle flame. The amazingly original and exquisitely beautiful Dubai towers are the project of architecture firm Thompson, Ventulett, Stainback and Associates.


Dubai Towers Dubai is a four tower complex proposed in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The developer, Sama Dubai, intends this to form the centrepiece of The Lagoons, a megaproject located on Dubai Creek which will consist of seven islands. The towers have between 57 to 94 stories[1] and although the heights are not known, it is believed the tallest will top 400 metres (1,310 ft) while two others will rise beyond 300 metres (980 ft).

Orlando Disney | In Photos


Orlando is without doubt my favourite travel place.. You could never run out of things to do in this place. As idea from the theme parks and there associated resorts it is less than an hours drive to the nearest beach, you could take in a basketball game and there are good shopping malls with excellent prices. However the theme parks are the main attraction for most visitors to Orlando and this is what makes it such a brilliant place. The theme parks and water parks at Disney and Universal as well as sea world are not your ordinary theme parks. Present day, the historic core of Old Orlando resides in Downtown Orlando along Church Street, between Orange Avenue and Garland Avenue.

Dubai Hotel Under Water | Hydropolis

The world most famous under water hotel in Dubai Hydropolis. People come to stay/visit there from around the world. Hydropolis will be the world’s first luxury underwater hotel. It will include three elements: the land station, where guests will be welcomed, the connecting tunnel, which will transport people by train to the main area of the hotel, and the 220 suites within the submarine leisure complex. It is one of the largest contemporary construction projects in the world, covering an area of 260 hectares, about the size of London’s Hyde Park.

Hydropolis is not a project; it’s a passion,” enthuses Joachim Hauser, the developer and designer of the hotel. His futuristic vision is about to take shape 20m below the surface of the Persian Gulf, just off the Jumeirah Beach coastline in Dubai. The original idea for Hydropolis developed out of Hauser’s passion for water and the sea, and goes much deeper than just building a hotel underwater. More than just curiosity, it is a commitment to a more far-reaching philosophy. “Once you start digging deeper and deeper into the subject, you can’t help being fascinated and you start caring about all the associated issues,” he explains. “Humans consist of 80% water, the earth consists of 80% water; without water there is no life.”

The land station also includes a restaurant and high-tech cinema screening the evolution of life in the ocean and the history of underwater architecture. As a finale, the screen will open to reveal the real-life Hydropolis. A viewing platform at the front opening of the spanning roof will allow views of the architecture as well as the light shows of Hydropolis.

Hydropolis  located on the famous Jumeirah coastline of Dubai. The underwater hotel designed by Joachim Hauser covering 27 acres will feature 220 suites sitting on the floor of Gulf 20 meters below the surface linked by a submerged transparent 1700 feet long tunnel, marine institute, cinema, cosmetic surgery clinic and museum. It is one of the largest contemporary construction projects in the world. It will include three elements:

Washington D.C | United States


The capital of the United States of America is full of architectural delights and brimming with history that the area cannot be described as anything but beautiful, regardless of in what context and respect. The White House is the most popular piece of architecture, but other notable mentions are the Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument – a stunning obelisk that towers above Washington at just over 555 feet tall.

Most visitors come to the falls from the Argentine city of Puerto Iguazu. Brazil and Paraguay require citizens of certain countries from Argentina to obtain a visa, which takes time. For example, North American visitors to Argentina crossing to prevent falls from the Brazilian side a visa must apply in person at the Brazilian consulate in the city of Puerto Iguazu Argentina. There are two international airports close to the Iguassu Falls Brazil Foz do Iguacu Airport (IGU) Cataratas del Iguazu and the Argentine International Airport (IGR). Both airports are a few kilometers from Iguassu Falls and the towns of Foz do Iguacu neighbors, Brazil and Puerto Iguazu, Argentina.
