Afternoon Tea at Burj al Arab

Burj al Arab is a luxury hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

It is the third tallest hotel in the world and stands on an artificial island, connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. The shape of the structure is designed to resemble the sail of a ship.

The Burj al Arab is the worlds only 7 star hotel.
