Burj Al Arab

Burj Al Arab is the fourth tallest hotel in the world. Burj Al Arab is a luxury hotel situated in Dubai. Burj Al Arab situated on an artificial island 280 m (920 ft) out from Jumeriah beach, and is linked to the mainland by a private curving bridge. The shape of the arrangement is designed to imitate the sail of a ship. Sometimes illustrated as “the world’s only seven-Star hotel”, its star ranking has been often argued.

The beachfront area where Burj Al Arab and Jumeriah Beach Hotel are located was previously called Chicago Beach. The beachfront area where Burj Al Arab and Jumeriah Beach Hotel are situated was formerly called Chicago Beach. The hotel is located on an island of reclaimed land 280 meters offshore of the beach of the former Chicago Beach Hotel. The locale’s name had its origins in the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company which at one time welded giant floating oil storage tankers on the site.

The old name persisted after the old Hotel was demolished in 1997. Dubai Chicago Beach Hotel remained as the Public Project Name for the construction phase of Burj Al Arab Hotel until Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced the new name.

Burj Al Arab was designed by British architect Tom Wright of WS Atkins PLC. The design and construction were managed by Canadian engineer Rick Gregory also of WS Atkins. Construction of the Island began in 1994. It was built to resemble the sail of a dhow, a type of Arabian vessel. Two “wings” spread in a V to form a vast “mast”, while the space between them is enclosed in a massive atrium.

Burj Al Arab is an iconic building of Dubai. Whenever one hears of Dubai, picture of Burj Al Arab immediately comes into one’s mind. Burj Al Arab is 1050 high and the only one, 7 star hotel in the world. His extravagant hotel attracts public attention with its superb interiors, spacious suites and world class luxurious facilities.

Dubai Radio Stations

Dubai is well served by terrestrial radio (AM & FM) with a enormous variety of stations distribution in the languages usually spoken in the city; Arabic, English, Hindi, Urdu, Malayalam and Filipino. The FM band is particularly crowded, with a new station every 2 or 3 MHz apart, some from neighboring Emirates and countries in the Persian Gulf. Due to crowding of the FM band, there is often interference between stations.

General standards have improved greatly in the past few years and many stations are now at par with leading stations in major metropolitan cities in the world. However, the media in Dubai and the UAE is still heavily government regulated. Most stations, even those privately owned, are often still government controlled. In particular, all radio stations must cease normal broadcasting in the event of the death of a Sheikh or close relative of a Sheikh. This normally happens for a period of 3 days to a week, or more, depending on the standing of the deceased.

Dubai radio is the essential guide to surviving Dubai’s hectic traffic with most stations placing importance on frequent traffic updates during the day, mostly from listeners. The use of SMS as a communication is also common in Dubai radio and TV stations in events such as competitions.
