Sights of Dubai - by Craig Hill


August 23rd 2007 19:50

The World's Tallest 7 Star Hotel.

Guess where it is ..?? Again in Dubai, the City of Wonders..!!

The Burj Al Arab is one of the rarest of jewels that can be found in the world. One of the most luxurious hotels in the world, it has earned the name of being the first 7 star hotel; and so far the tallest Hotel in the world.

The name Burj Al Arab in Arabic, meaning "Tower of the Arabs"; has become an iconic symbol of Dubai. The hotel resembles a dhow (Arabian sea vessel) with a billowed out sail. Construction of this massive hotel, began in 1994 and was opened to the public in 1999; after 5 years. These five years saw the taking shape of the first of its kind, hotel built out into the Arabian sea, which was to become the symbol that the Emirate of Dubai, would be eventually identified with.

I'm sure most people will have heard of this famous 7-star hotel.

An engineering marvel from the outside and uber grand on the inside - fantastic!

Charles is one up on me, I think this concept and the picture are just so imaginative. I found what you told us very interesting.

I'm seriously considering eventually getting my CA (Chartered Accountants) qualification just so I could get guaranteed work in Dubai.

Well that's a bit extreme but it sounds like the ideal place to live in. Looking forward to learning more about Dubai through your blog!
