In a relatively short time, Dubai's skyscrapers have become icons - distinct markers of a futuristic air-conditioned metropolis in the middle of an otherwise arid desert.And while the city continues to change drastically from month to month, with new skyscrapers seeming to grow from the ground overnight, the weather is actually quite homogeneous, with long days alternating between being either hot or exceptionally hot and skies varying between shades of blue or bluer.Most of these 15 to 20 buildings are private apartments or hotels, so it can be tricky to talk your way to the top, especially if you're carrying professional camera equipment. The Princess Tower, Burj Khalifa, Index Tower, Rose Rayhaan (known as the Rose Tower) and Cayan Tower all reach higher than 70 floors.
