Yup - I can't wait to see all that art....providing it doesn't go against the religion, culture and morals of the UAE of course

have you checked out Herny Cartier-Bresson's work on display at the Palace?
I think today is the last day it runs - well worth the visit

I see someone finally took a walk around Emirates Palace.

That exhibition has been open for a year but it is very good.

I saw that exhibition when I was staying there last summer at the time of the Picasso show. This one was way better.

A stroll around Emirates Palace? It's so far from reception to the rooms that you need a supply of Kendall mint cake!

I've not been to Emirates Palace itself (only the grounds for concerts)...haven't gotten around to it yet.
