Decorations hang on the $11 million Christmas tree, standing at 13 metres tall and decorated with necklaces, watches and bracelets with more than 180 diamonds, pearls, emeralds, sapphires and other precious stones, in the lobby of the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi December 16, 2010. The Emirates Palace, a high-end hotel in the United Arab Emirates, has issued an apology for its over-the-top bejeweled conifer just a few days after it was boasting about having the world's most expensive Christmas tree.
