Check Into the 7-Star Burj Al Arab

To be honest, most of us will never really check into one of this 7-star hotel's 2-story opulent suites, complete with spiral staircases, but that doesn't mean you can't get a glimpse of the gold-leaf and glamour in person. The only other way to get past the gate is to make a reservation in advance at one of the hotel's 8 restaurants and bars -- all with exorbitant prices. We recommend dining al fresco at poolside restaurant Bab Al Yam followed by after-dinner drinks with panoramic views at the Skyview Bar (included in the dining experience). Even more affordable? Pick a beach bar at a nearby hotel and gaze upon the sail-shaped hotel and Arabian Gulf, as the most impressive view of all is of the exterior.
