All three in Dubai

I dont know of any other tallest hotel towers in the pipeline but I'm sure 333m can be beaten easily... by Dubai itself hopefully
will the No.4 be the burj dubai lake hotal?

Indeed it will be. Burj Dubai Lake Hotel will be 306m - 2 meters taller than the current 3rd tallest hotel in the world, Baiyoke Tower II of Bangkok. So here's what the list will look like:

1. Rose Rotana, Dubai - 333m
2. Burj Al Arab, Dubai - 321 m
3. Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel, Dubai - 309 m
4. Burj Dubai Lake Hotel, Dubai - 306m
5. Baiyoke Tower II, Bangkok - 304m

Thats right, I'm a troll. Oh wait. I've been at this website since its inception---two years longer than you, bud.


I'm not trolling, I'm stating an opinion. I said it was impressive. But any noveau riche country that feels it needs to prove itself by building such gaudy monuments to ostentantion is being very very tacky. I mean, look at that picture! Hundreds of high rises in the middle of the desert. Not my cup of tea. But like I said, very impressive, nonetheless.
