Let's all take a vicarious vacation to Dubai (through time-lapse video)

(CBS News) The summer is slowly but surely coming to an end, and I don't know about you, but I did not get to go on vacation to some exotic locale this year.  Or last year.  Or the year before. Sigh.  I suppose it's a good thing we live in the era of the Internet where we can still take a moment out of our day to go on a vicarious vacation through amazing online videos. So, without further ado, let's all take a trip to Dubai!

The breathtakingly beautiful time-lapse video of the city of Dubai was done by Vimeo user Geoff Tompkinson as part of a larger project to take a trip around the world in time-lapse.  To check out more work (and go on other vicarious vacations) by Geoff Tompkinson, you can visit his Vimeo page by clicking here.
