Among the regions, which own the majority of records in the hotel industry today, are countries of Southeast Asia and the Middle East. In modern history the United Arab Emirates is an unequivocal leader according to the number of record breaking hotels. In the UAE, in the city of Dubai the famous hotel Burj Al Arab was built.
