A hotel in Abu Dhabi decided to go extravagant this holiday, erecting a bedazzled Christmas tree valued at more than $11 billion.
The tree is filled with expensive jewelry from diamond necklaces and earrings, to pearls emeralds, and rubies.
The 43-foot artificial tree is in the lobby of the Emirates Palace hotel.
The tree alone -- without decorations -- is worth about $10,000.
Emirates Palace has a track record of over-the-top stunts.
The hotel installed a gold ATM near its lobby, where customers can buy bullion, and holds a Guinness world for the most expensive alcohol.
