Dubai knows a thing or two about stunts; the emirate just oozes wow factor, from Jetman to jewellery in the Gold Souk.
But it's latest large-scale eye-catcher is perhaps it's most beautiful yet. For the past few days, residents have woken up to the stunning site of near-on hundreds of hot air balloons floating majestically in the sky over the Dubai Marina end of town.
Social media was, rightly, ablaze with images and comments about the show, which was orchestrated as part of the World Air Games 2015, taking place in and around Skydive Dubai.
Here we showcase some of the best and most popular shared images.
