Abu Dhabi unveiled world's most expensive Christmas tree

42776.jpegAbu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates is home to the world's most expensive Christmas tree ever. The Emirates Palace hotel has erected an $11 million Christmas tree in their lobby. It will remain on display until the end of the year.

The tree itself is an artificial fir Christmas tree that cost $10,000.

What adds to the expense of the tree are the ornaments. There are 131 of them that have diamonds, sapphires and other gemstones. Oh, and don't forget the gold - lots and lots of gold, Examiner reports.

The hotel is trying to gain a listing in the Guinness World Records for having the most expensive Christmas tree in the world. 131 different jewellery pieces, including gold and precious stones, were provided by a local jeweller. Tourists and visitors stopped for their picture to be taken near the unique tree or just to gaze at it in awe.

"What we are trying to do is to give everybody who visits and everybody who is staying here the chance of to be part of something really special and unique," Janet Abrahams said.

For Abu Dhabi's Emirates Palace hotel, where royalty and billionaires come for cappuccinos topped with gold flakes, the tree almost seems part of the furniture, ITN informs.
