Dubai – Burj Al Arab

Dubai – Burj Al Arab

Sunday 8th October

We took a few hours of respite in the afternoon before venturing out again to take a tour of the Burj Al Arab hotel. It’s a spectacular building. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s  vision was a building that would be as instantly recognizable as the Sydney Opera House or the Eiffel Tower: an international symbol of Dubai.
The hotel is built on reclaimed land and is 321 mts tall (amongst the tallest buildings in the world). It has 199 suites.

All suites have 2 levels

The one chair that I was allowed to sit on

A bedroom

A lounge room

Another lounge room

One of the bathrooms

One of the dining rooms

The office

The fabric swatches

…and at $40,000 per night I guess I am not staying here anytime soon!
