Tips

When to go

Best season

All months

Best time

Morning, Mid-day, Late afternoon
You can photograph this view of the Khalifa International Stadium from The Torch all months of the year.
For clear skies, like in my photo, visit during the day. That said, I recommend visiting at golden hour. The view will be much more stunning.

Field tips

If you're not staying at the hotel, be a patron and ask an employee nicely if you can photograph from the 19th floor.
For this shot, you'll be outside and safeguarded by glass. I recommend bringing a polarizer filter so you can avoid reflection.
The Khalifa International Stadium is extremely photogenic and colorful. Try to pop up the colors in your post-production and reduce any harsh shadows.
The swimming pool on the 19th floor is also wonderful to photograph.
