The Insides of the Burj Al Arab – Stuck in Customs

The Insides of the Burj Al Arab

Hot Dubai Tip

There is a nearby beach hotel that you can stay at for much cheaper and it’s part of this same network of hotels. If you book there, then you can eat at the restaurants here in this “7-star hotel” or visit the upstairs bar that juts out over the sea. This is what Rene and I did and it worked out great. They also let us use tripods in here for a while with no issues…

That hotel is the Royal Jumeirah Beach Hotel. Check it out! Note I paid full price for the hotel… not a product placement just a good recommendation! 🙂

Daily Photo – The Insides of the Burj Al Arab

What a building! Some people find it not-so-attractive, but I think it’s kinda fun in a glitzy-vegas jewellery-box kinda way. Hey, I like colorful stuff, what can I say? There’s a very interesting documentary on this you can find on YouTube and it shows how the whole thing was initially painted white. The royal family came in, hated it, and demanded more colors. It ended up like this!
