Golden View by blackchallenge

Beautiful decoration just after the main hall, coffee tables area with golden painted ceiling, amazing lighting colors and set up, The Emirates Palace is a luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Built as a landmark showcasing Arabian culture, Emirates Palace has created a niche in luxury hospitality. Situated on 1.3 km of private beach and surrounded by 85 hectares of gardens and lawns, with 114 domes that are 80 meters high, Emirates Palace comprises 394 rooms and suites carefully designed and furnished to offer guests superior comfort and luxury. Based on its luxury, it describes itself as going “beyond 5 stars” being a palace instead of just a hotel. Although a journalist has described it as a seven star facility, it falls officially in the 5 star hotel category. Emirates Palace was operated by the luxury hotel group Kempinski Hotels & Resorts. The world’s most expensive
hotel was built and is owned by the Abu Dhabi government. The city, which is the United Arab Emirates’ capital makes a great impression on the Middle East corporate tourism being the biggest rival of Dubai. The 3 billion $ cost hotel was opened in 2005 and is a colossal standalone itself.

Hohenwerfen castle by bverbrugge

Hohenwerfen castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley, approximately 40 km (25 mi) south of Salzburg. The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 atop a 155 m (509 ft) high rock. From here you have an excellent view at the surrounding mountains. Worth a visit I would say. That’s what I did myself, but before climbing to the top I had to take this photo, when the sun was still a bit low.

King of the Hill by cvbphoto

New York, the mother of all modern cities.
This is the view from the top of the Rockefeller Center, where you can see all of Manhattan.
On the left, the Chrysler building is a slightly hidden; in the very middle, the famous Empire State building; and far far behind it, the newly built Freedom tower. And if you look close enough, you will even be able to see the Liberty Statue.
