The most prominent is the world famous Burj Al Arab hotel, which sits offshore on a man-made island and the architecture of which has become an iconic symbol of Dubai. Burj al-Arab hotel is worth a visit if 7 star hotels are your kind of thing for afternoon tea, or a refreshment. Entry to the hotel requires a reservation which will be confirmed at the entry gate, although residents of adjacent Jumeirah hotels may be able to visit by arrangement. “Jumeirah City,” consists of three luxurious five-star hotels, a shopping mall, and a pier that extends into the Persian Gulf. There is also a public beach and park and plenty of restaurants. Jumeirah also has a mosque, the Jumeirah Mosque, which is open to non-Muslims for tours at 10:00 am on most days other than Friday which gives visitors an insight into Islam. Dubai’s Grand Mosque is very impressive however, it is not open to non muslims.
