Atlantis Palm Jumeirah officially opens - the most lavish opening ceremony ever?

If you were in Dubai last night, you would be hard pressed to believe there was a global financial currently taking place. Kylie Minogue –  along with the world’s most rich and famous – performed at a £20m party that marked  the opening of the Atlantis Palm Jumeirah. Among the guests were 2,000 celebrities and billionaires who had flown in from around the world for the lavish occasion.   A firework display costing seven times as much as the largest display ever before (at the Beijing Olympics) made for a spectacular finale.
