Another thing that I would add to my Bucket List is to stay one night at the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. This magnificent structure resembles a sailboat which is situated atop an artificial island off the desert coast. There are 202 suites, the smallest one being 1820 sq. ft and the largest being 8,400 sq. ft! The structure stands 1053 ft. I would like to visit this unique hotel just to say that I have been there. It is definitely not the desert heat that would attract me to this location or the fact that I have to fly there (I hate to fly). It would probably be too hot to even sit on the beach. Out of curiousity, I searched this hotel to find some rates for a room and if I went there today I could get a deluxe king one bedroom suite for just $2,046! You can check out the amenities here. This is a room for just 2 adults. Sorry, but I would not be taking the kids here. I can't imagine what it would cost to eat in one of the restaurants. There is also a helipad at the top of the building, if that is how you would rather arrive.
If you would like to see some pictures of the inside of the hotel, please click here. The decor is very flashy but what else would you expect?
