Pic(k) of the week 29: The unknown highest tower
Pretty much the whole world knows where the worlds highest tower, Burj Khalifa stands!
What most people don't know is that the highest hotel can also be found in Dubai, just a few blocks away from the 828m skyscraper.
The Rotana Rose tower (333m) which opened officially end of 2009, is presently the worlds tallest hotel. However it is planned to be overtaken end of this year by the Emirates Park Towers (not to be confused with Emirates Towers!). 365m, Will be the new limit. The dynamics of Dubai.
