It's just amazing what the UAE is doing with Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Seems like they're really trying to develop a tourist economy.

UGH... call me when that's open.

EDIT: Oh, and when I had first seen some slides of the Atlantis, I touhg, "wow, I want ot go there." After seeing all of these nice pictures, I'm convinced I NEED to go there. Amazing.

Wasn't the Freedom Tower supposed to be completed before the Burj Khalifa?

Fantastic TR guys :)

The Burj Khalifa looks amazing. I'm sure I'd probably have a minor panic attack in the elevator on the way up. But those views are amazing.

The UAE, looks fantastic, and I'll definitely be looking out for the future TPR trip there.

Those waterparks do look amazing, as you said! I might have to get out there in my lifetime.

Were you able to find a Carrabba's there? I know a guy here who had to go over to Dubai and help open an Outback Steakhouse.

^ Haha, it looks nice. It looks "open air" to the mall or whatever building its in. It reminds me of the Outback that used to be at PNC Park here in Pittsburgh. That was the world's largest Outback at the time, but it wouldn't surprise me if this one in Dubai is bigger.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

:lmao: They're FINALLY making progress on it. It took long enough though.

By the way, if Robb's post was directed at me I didn't mean to sound like I was complaining. I was just asking what the upper floors were used for and if there was a second deck. If I were in Dubai I would gladly cough up the 40 bucks to go up there.
