  • A restaurant with a view..
  • Construction started in 1994. It was built to resemble the sail of a dhow, a type of Arabian vessel. Two "wings" spread in a V to form a vast "mast", while the space between them is enclosed in a massive atrium
  • The hotel is officially rated Five-Star Deluxe. However, it is frequently described as "the world's only Seven-Star hotel", although the hotel management claims to never have done that themselves.

Burj Al Arab, Dubai - برج العرب، دبي

One of the easiest subjects I have ever captured. You know, sometimes there are places where it is impossible to find the right angle for a good picture. Burj Al Arab was easy in that sense: any angle was good for a great shot. Hope you enjoy. EXPLORED.
