Dubai: Burj Al Arab

Burj Al Arab
The green light at the entrance means we can go!

The Burj Al Arab (Arabic: برج العرب‎, Tower of the Arabs) is a luxury hotel located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. At 321 m (1,053 ft), it is the fourth tallest hotel in the world. The Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m (920 ft) 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 hotel rests on an artificial island constructed 280 m (920 ft) offshore.

Prices of rooms vary from approximately $1,000 to $27,000 per night.  The hotel is officially rated Five-Star Deluxe. However, it is frequently described as "the world's only seven-Star hotel."

This "7 star hotel" was unbelievable.  I understand many parts are made of gold.  The rooms and design were so embellished.
