Behold Atlantis Rising

You missed out on an invitation to the opening of Dubai’s Atlantis Hotel the other night or you wish to relive the experience?

See the most expensive fireworks display in history, a smattering of the celebs, learn what Janet Jackson likes about the Atlantis and see Kylie grooving on stage for her handsome pay cheque.
