The newest landmark in Dubai is Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the World. This view is from Dubai Mall, the largest mall in the world, and across the pond which holds musical fountains, also the largest in the World. A must see in Dubai :)
That Luang stupa in Vientiane is the national symbol of Laos shining in gold and covering a smaller stupa with a relic of Buddha himself - from 300 AD.
The Blue Mosque in old Istanbul is one of the finest buildings I've seen in the World, almost magical at the blue moment just after sunset.
