Dubai Burj Al Arab

Dubai Burj Al Arab
One of our destinations on our list of Dubai was the Burj Al Arab – the most luxurious hotel in the world. The hotel is built on an artificial island and only accessible by one bridge. You must have a reservation of some kind (room, drinks, restaurant) to enter the hotel. This is checked just before you can enter the bridge. We chose the least expensive reservation: Afternoon tea in the Skyview Bar. The Skyview Bar can be seen in the top left part of the building.

The interior of the Burj Al Arab is decorated with gold leaf and bright colours, and of course extravagant.

Later that day, we could see the Burj Al Arab from the  Souk Madinat during the sunset – a beautiful end of a nice day.

Jumeirah hotel guests can enjoy free abra rides on the water canals of the Madinat Souk. During the exposure of the photo above an abra passed by. You cannot see the abra itself, just the red and white lights on it.
