From old souks and fishing villages to identikit villas, skyscrapers and vast roads, there’s no denying that Dubai’s landscape has evolved over the years, but a stunning new video produced by Ammar Al Khnsat has helped to really put it all in perspective.

Dubai is an amazing city and a new video posted on My Dubai My City proves just that. Using a helicopter provided by HeliDubai, and filming with a Canon 30-300 cinema lens, the production team, including Cineflex Elite, Aerial Filmworks and GoAerials, managed to captured the stunning cinematography that reveals how the old town contrasts with the new state-of-the-art building that has helped Dubai become one of the top cities in the world for its architecture.


Majestic hotels and modernised desert plains prove how advanced the city has become while piercing structures from the Burj Khalifa and the minarets highlight the grandeur of the design that the emirate boasts. Spanning from cargo boats in Diera to super yachts in the Marina, the video reveals the various and beautiful facets that the region has to offer.


Without further ado here’s the video. Enjoy and prepare to be captivated.
