This scene was captured from the 124th floor of the Burj Khalifa skyscraper, in Dubai, UAE. Luxury villas, houses and hotels, many of which were built in the traditional Arabian style, surround the base of the tower, as well as the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake. This Lake is home to the world’s largest performing fountain. At certain times, each day, the 900-feet long fountain is used to create a spectacular water, music and light show. It is a 'must see' for all visitors to this amazing city!
