Apparently this is a very popular spot amongst the photography community in Dubai - the 43rd floor of the Sheraton hotel on Sheikh Zayed road, appropriately called "Level 43". I had no problem making my way up here and found the place almost to myself (with another fellow photographer). It was a pleasant day where the skies were clear (i.e. no haze), though not that many clouds. In the distance, you can also catch a glimpse of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
