World's Most Expensive Christmas Tree Nov 15, 2011
located at the The Emirates Palace hotel, Abu Dhabi, dome-topped hotel sitting amid fountains and carefully manicured lawns.

The hotel, which bills itself as seven-star, in February introduced a package for a seven-day stay priced at one million dollars.

And in May, the hotel opened a gold vending machine, becoming the first place outside Germany to install "gold to go, the world's first gold vending machine"

The Christmas Tree :)

The 13-metre (40-foot) faux evergreen, located in the gold leaf-bedecked rotunda of the hotel, is decorated with silver and gold bows, ball-shaped ornaments and small white lights.

But the necklaces, earrings and other jewellery draped around the tree's branches are what give it a record value.

It holds a total of 181 diamonds, pearls, emeralds, sapphires and other precious stones.

The tree itself is about 10,000 dollars. The jewellery has a value of over 11 million dollars

Indeed it is odd to have a Christmas tree in a dominantly Muslim sheikdom and the seat of the Arab Emirates. But then again, they are increasingly becoming the favorite shopping and luxury travel destinations. I should love to see the tree.

What an odd place for a Christian holiday emblem to be. Very pretty though, cool review and GREAT title.
