Monuments


a few weeks ago, my younger brother, who is not so young anymore, went to dubai, n he asked me what do you want me to get you from there? and i thought to myself a landmark or monument would be nice to add to my collection. But whats dubai's landmark??

Kuwait its the towers, paris the eiffel, italy pisa, egypt the pyramids, and so on... bs whats dubai's??

nearly everyone i asked said Burj al3arab, but thats a HOTEL, i dont go to london and buy a tiny churchil!

so im asking u, whats dubais landmark/momument other than burj al3arab ?!

You have a good point there. I remember going to Qatar and asking mom's Qatari freind what to take back home to Kuwait as something specifically Qatari. For example the Omanis have 7alwa 3mania and the Bahrainis have 7alwa shwai6er, we have rahash. But if I remember correctly she couldnt think of anything. I assume it would be the same with the UAE. But they have so many creative small stuff that would be awesome. Even if you dont get something specific to the UAE your brother can probably find you some really funky stuff.

Can't give you any suggestion about a monument in Dubai but I just wanted to tell you how much I liked the banner on your blog :)

I don't think there is anything other than burj el3arab!!
but the UAE is progressing so they may build something that will be as a monnument in the future :)

Burj Al Arab is just reflecting on Dubai as a city, but when you want to compare Kuwait, Oman, and Bahrain, use the UAE. As for a souvenir, we have the old forts, the daggers, and for females..you can get the local style 3abayas or clothes :) Same thing goes for the guys

عندنا في دبي البارجيل يعتبر من اللاند مارك

حتى إنه كثير من المباني والبيوت ماخذينه كعلامه

برج العرب وأبراج الإمارات وقبلهن كان دوار الساعه
كلها بعد تعتبر من اللاند مارك برج العرب مش بس فندق هذا تحفه معماريه

well technically, from an architectural point of view, the typical landmark is either a structure/sculpture standing alone, or an office building, or a hotel.
Burj al 3arab is dubai's most recognized landmark not only in UAE but internationally as well. And hey they wanted that so who are we to tell them anything:p
