Shangri-La, Dubai

FullSizeRender-106Housed in a 43-floor iconic skyscraper on the famous Sheikh Zayed Road, the Shangri-La Dubai is a modern oasis in the heart of the city that provides the most outstanding view of the world’s tallest building and the centre of Dubai.


IMG_2424While I was still speechless by the glorious tower and its size, the friendly stuff opened the door of my car and with the word “marhabaan” I was already excited for my Dubai vacations.

  1. Hi there, loved your piece about Shangri-La. I have been keen on taking a picture of the Burj Khalifa from there. Do I have to book a room with them to do that?

    Thanks in advance!!


    1. Hello,
      Thank you very much! Glad you liked the Shangri La Dubai article. The best way to take the photos is to book a room. You can also visit the hotel and ask the stuff to take you to a floor with the Burj Khalifa view. They are very friendly and I am sure that they will help you the best way possible.

      Good Luck! 🙂
