Trip Moments

JOJO’s wonderful trip   
Although the size of the white mosque can only be ranked eighth in the world, the cost is far ahead. All the outer walls are made of the highest quality white marble from Greece. The minaret of the minaret and the dome are also made of gold. Finally, After accounting, all the gold used 46 tons.
Follow the crowd into the referral hall, which is another place to show the beauty of Arabian decoration. On the wall, the flowers and vines on the walls and the flowers and lanterns on the glass doors and windows. . . The lingering branches and leaves, the multicolored flowers inlaid with various gemstones, all make people look lingering.
Enter the main hall, the most striking is the seven sets of Austrian custom Swarovski crystal chandeliers.
Each group consists of more than 11,000 Swarovski crystals, gorgeous and colorful, to see people's mood.
The shocking not only in the air, but also in the main hall, this Persian carpet is the world's largest hand-woven carpet, costing 5.8 million US dollars, imported by 1200 Iranian workers from New Zealand with 38 tons. The wool was woven for one and a half years, with 220 million knots and 9 pieces, with a total area of 5,627 square meters and a total weight of 35 tons.
When my barefooted bare feet and this tens of millions of soft sisters are in contact with each other, I really can't walk. I want to use every cell on my feet. Feel the luxury and feel the exquisite craftsmanship of this ancient Persian. Even if you travel to the streets because of travel, there is a moment to recollect.

Abu Dhabi Louvre See humanity in a new light

is the first world museum in the Arab world. It is also a modern maritime museum. After reading the collections from different countries, come out. Surprised by the beauty of the building.

Although I have not been to the Louvre in France, the feeling of being in the Louvre in Abu Dhabi is that it puts different civilizations in the same space. It fully reflects the spirit of the UAE's inclusiveness and openness.

has not entered the Louvre, the scenery outside is enough to make people intoxicated. Must take two!

This new museum was designed by the famous French architect Jean Nuer. The venue was built from pure white and grey lines. The dome of the Louvre in Abu Dhabi is built by the interlacing of layers of hollow metal. The sun shines through the roof and creates a picture of light and shadow on the ground. After checking the information, I realized that the design was designed to show the effect of the palm trees under the branches, because the Ain Oasis near Abu Dhabi is considered to be the beginning of the birth of the Arabian peninsula. It is the oasis dominated by palm trees. In the Arabs, the use of rainwater and groundwater to build a water conservancy system allowed the population to thrive and grow rapidly, so palm trees have special significance for Arabs. This design is similar to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

Seeing the light distributed by these dots is also like the starry sky at night. Just like a dream of beauty and dreams, we went to the ultimate dream overnight. That sentence said "a visual feast". There are not only the precious cultural relics left by the Arab civilization, but also the artistic treasures that have been transported by air from France. Really an art landmark. I did not see the self-portrait of Van Gogh and was said to have been borrowed for exhibition. The classic portrait of Napoleon seems to have seen the cover of the high school history book. Here, a shot is a fashion blockbuster.

Devotional luxury Sheikh Zayed Mosque

In the UAE, perhaps you are tired of taking photos with the blue sky and white clouds and seascape deserts, then you should check out the most beautiful buildings in the UAE. The

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is also a landmark attraction for the UAE must-have card. Still have to choose the time when the sunset is sinking. At this time, the mosque is extraordinarily feminine. The mosque at night is also exceptionally beautiful.

[Viewing experience]
Sheikh Zayed is named after the late chieftain, and now everyone calls it the Grand Mosque. But I like the name Sheikh Zayed, and I have a strong Middle Eastern atmosphere when I hear it. The seven-story chandelier in the hall is studded with Swarovski crystals on the basis of gold plating. The chandelier in the worship hall is the world's largest crystal chandelier. The most expensive cost, the largest crystal lamp, the most dazzling white, the most gold pillars. All of these are the reasons that attract us to this. There is a clock in the temple. Foreign tourists take pictures and know that this is not an ordinary chronograph. This timepiece shows different prayer times, morning rituals, rituals, rituals, faints, rituals. After visiting, I don't think about its ho, but their beliefs, their spirit. During the visit, many staff members will remind you to wear a headscarf. In order to deepen the understanding of Muslims and non-Muslims, Sheikh Zayed is open to all visitors, no matter where you are from, regardless of your skin color beliefs. Come in and visit. Walking into Sheikh Zayed, it will really be deeply shocked, not only visual, but also the soul. The white and innocent appearance, the colorful interior, grand and solemn, solemn and holy. It makes people feel awe. Tolerant, open, restrained, quiet.

[Photography process]
Don't rush into the mosque. You may wish to take a more panoramic view of the mosque by turning around and avoiding the crowd. You can take a lot of details when you walk in. The one column, one brick and one light can make a sense of charm. If you have a girl with you, you may wish to take a look at the model.
