The National Bank of Dubai is possibly the building I liked most... it's localted along the creek and its shape - arched - reminds of the shape of a dhow's sail. Mirror-like panels cover the entire facade so that when the sun goes down, the place lits up in flames.. it glitters as if it were made of gold... a truly unique and breathtaking sight.

Some information about the building: it was built in 1998, it's 20 floors and 125 metres high. The materials used in its contruction are mainly polished steel and glass

Directions: Deira side, along the khor

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
