The manmade lake that popped up (you may have seen it on Time Out Dubai’s Instagram account from photographer @lostmagpie earlier in March) was made by Dubai Municipality, made using a lake, trees and sand to resemble the Expo 2020 logo.

Fancy taking a few snaps of the lake yourself? It’s near Babs Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa and Last Exit Al Qudra by Meraas.
The best way of getting there is heading along the D63 route, past Last Exit and by turning right on the road that also leads to Al Qudra Lakes.
You can see it on Google Maps here
Once you’re there it’s time to take out the camera and get exploring.
Other man-made lakes including the Al Qudra Lakes (close by) were created by the Dubai civic body, the office of the Engineers of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
