A Christmas tree that costs $11 million (£7 million) and is thought to be the most expensive ever decorated has been unveiled at Abu Dhabi's Emirates Palace hotel.
The hotel's general manager, Hans Olbertz, was quoted on Thursday as saying the 43-foot (13-meter) faux fir has 131 ornaments that include gold and precious stones such as diamonds and sapphires.
It is the latest extravagance at the Emirates Palace hotel, which boasts its own marina, heliport and a vending machine for small gold bars.
Mr Olbertz told Dubai's Gulf News that he worked with one of the jewellers in the hotel to create a "unique tree and experience for our guests this year". The hotel may later contact Guinness World Records for a possible bid as the world's most expensive Christmas tree.
The Guinness web site lists a $10.8 million tree erected in 2002 in Toyko with 83 pieces of jewellery from Piaget Japan.
Still, back in the real world where Christmas tree's still cost £25.00 from B&Q you can still grab yourself a Christmas bargain on holiday accommodation. Just visit Bargain villas for a cheap holiday villa
