Burj Al Arab – The Landmark of Dubai

In recent years Dubai has stunned the world with its wonders.

Burj al-Arab is the icon of Dubai and the most popular landmark for tourism. Known as “the Sail” Burj al-Arab is the first and the only 7-star hotel and the most luxurious on in the world, refinished in gold, where you can enjoy the most expensive drink on the globe with its price of 27,321AED, served with gold cups.

Burj al-Arab, 27 floors and 321 meters high, is one of the tallest hotels in the world, inaugurated on the tenth day of the third millennium. The cost of construction has been never revealed. During the night, the outside lights change color every 30 minutes, providing a stunning show.

Burj Khalifa – The Roof of the World

4 January 2010 was a memorable date for Dubai. The opening of Burj Khalifa was meant to be unforgettable. It turned out to be one of those nights that would go down in the history of this nation as a grand testimony of the spirit of unity in the UAE.

By renaming the Burj, the most prominent milestone in Dubai’s long list of achievements, after President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, reminded the world, and the residents of the UAE, of the basis on which this country was founded – seven emirates, but only one people.

Unveiling the nameplate, Shaikh Mohammad said: “We built the high-rise for people with strong will add determination. The highest point in the world should be linked to the big names and I announce today the opening of Burj Khalifa Bin Zayed”.

The 828 meter tower, now officially the world’s tallest free-standing building, is seen by many as concrete proof of the resilience of the Dubai economy, the technical skills of its people and the fulfillment of Shaikh Mohammad’s vision for its economic and social development. Despite a global economic downturn, the building was finished in time to commemorate the fourth anniversary of the succession of Shaikh Mohammad as ruler of Dubai.
