Sneak Peek: Al Qasr at the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai

If you visit Dubai, you have to go check out the spectacle that is the Madinat Jumeirah.  The Madinat is actually two separate resorts and courtyard villas, with a giant modern souk (made to look authentic) in the middle with tons of restaurants and shops.

Here's a sneak peek at Al Qasr, a gorgeous mock-Arabian resort that is part of the Madinat.  I think it's worth it to pay more and get a view of the Burj Al Arab, which has become the symbol of Dubai and is an uber-luxury hotel also operated by Jumeirah.  If you see Dubai in the news, you see the Burj Al Arab.
