Burj Al Arab or Tower of the Arab is the one and only 7-star hotel in the world. It stands on a man-made island next to the Jumeirah beach with a staggering height of 312 m. This iconic structure symbolizes a sailboat. The main purpose of developing a 7-star hotel was to attract tourists and make the city more well known.
