Shopping is great too as huge discounts are everywhere. Bargain-hunters take note.
Speaking of Christmas decoration, if you are in Abu Dhabi, UAE, I suppose this is one Christmas tree not to be missed.
The glitzy Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi, UAE, has done it again!
At the hotel lobby stands what has been named the Most Expensive Christmas Tree in the World.
Though it has yet to be certified by Guinness World Records as the Most Expensive Christmas Tree, this 43-foot Christmas tree is decked with USD11 million worth of 181 items of jewellery of bracelets, necklaces, earrings and watches studded with diamonds, pearls, emeralds, sapphires and other precious stones along with the traditional baubles and such.
The Emirates Palace Hotel still holds the Guinness World Record they set in 2010.
This hotel also holds a few other 'firsts', one of which is the installation of the world's first gold vending machine. Another record recently set in June is when Capital Gate, the tilting glass tower, was named the “World’s Furthest-Leaning Manmade Tower” by Guinness.
