Burj Al Arab

Recommended
It is not a religious or historical monument that symbolises Dubai's excesses, but a hotel shaped like a sail. Shooting up 321m into the air from the man-made island on which it is built, Burj Al Arab, designed by British architect Tom Wright, is the tallest hotel in the world, and the first to have seven stars!

Our reports

Dubai, multi-ethnic metropolis of the Middle East

A star on the international scene, Dubai has left behind many remnants of its past. Still, its mercantile multiculturalism reveals the human diversity of an Emirate that is now one of the hubs of the Arab world. A world apart from the luxury hotels and insolent architecture of its triumphant economy.
