A couple of years ago, Dubai welcomed a record-breaking 10 million visitors, according to Gulf News.
And while millions more will undoubtedly visit the United Arab Emirates' manmade city, not all of us will be fortunate enough to make the trip.
But that doesn't mean technology can't deliver a similar experience. In a recent, stunningly shot video by Rob Whitworth, the filmmaker brings viewers along for a wild, three-dimensional tour of Dubai.
The video, which is appropriately titled Dubai Flow Motion, proves that the city is more than just the Burj Khalifa (aka the tallest building in the world). As a matter of fact, Whitworth himself learned more about Dubai while working on this project.
He revealed in the video's description,
My first impression of Dubai was that of super-tall buildings jutting out of the desert sand.
That wasn't the case, though. Well, super-tall buildings and desert sand were definitely a part of his experience, but there was more to it.
After 3 months of exploration, research and filming, my lasting impression is of the eternal wonder of the desert and the importance it holds for the Emirati people.
