    I saw Dubai on an episode of Amazing Race and would love to go. I was just reading about the Burj Al Arab the other day:

    So expensive was the hotel's design and construction that it is estimated that to reach breakeven, it must be entirely booked for 400 years. The full amount it cost to build the hotel and furnish it is not publicly known, but some estimates suggest it easily cost over US$ 1 billion.
    I also liked this:

    The Burj al-Arab features the tallest atrium lobby in the world (180 meters, or 590 feet), and the volume of the atrium can accommodate the Dubai World Trade Center building, which, at 38 stories, was the tallest building in Dubai from the late 1970s to the late 1990s. The Statue of Liberty, along with its pedestal, could fit into the atrium.
    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burj_Al_Arab

    I've also got to see Wild Wadi. It's supposed to be the largest water park outside the US:

    Fun stuff!

    There was this thread here talking about what would you do with your first million. I would add a weekend at Burj Al Arab as one of the things I would do.
