Today: Destination in transformation – Dubai.
Start the tour with the “tower of the arabs”. On the coast of the United Arab Emirates you will find this 321 m high buliding which the fourth tallest hotel in the world.
The price for a suite 1.000-30.000 US$ per night.
The hotel Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m out from Jumeirah beach and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. It is an iconic structure whose shape mimics the sail of a ship. The Burj Al Arab is a 5-star often referred to as 7-star hotel, it was designed by Brit architect Tom Wright and opened in 1999.
If you do not want to check in I can highly recommend to have a tea during day time or a cocktail in the bar on floor 27.
Several features of the hotel required complex engineering feats to achieve. The hotel rests on an artificial island constructed 280 m offshore. To secure a foundation, the builders drove 45 m long concrete piles into the sand.
The hotel is managed by the Jumeirah Group and they are running also a nice hotel complex 300m nearby.
Dubai is special, besides all the luxury things like “Rent a Ferrari” you can also travel by the Dubai metro.
The train is divided into three classes. The first, or the gold class, is for the rich and businessmen, while the second is for women and children. The silver class, or the third, is the cheap tickets.
Emiratis prefer the golden class, as the seats are limited and there are hostesses who receive them and meet all their demands and create a comfortable atmosphere for them. Businessmen hold their morning meetings with their employees on their way to work, and they can hold an online meeting using the wifi.
In the other two classes, wifi is offered as well. Air conditioner and information screens inside the trains helps to enjoy the trip.
Enjoy the look out off the window.
Its worth it to check in here.
Perfect, style at its best – Burj al Arab.
