Dubai bags another Guinness World Record…

Dubai is no stranger to Guinness World Records, currently boasting feats such as the world’s tallest hotel – Gevora hotel, and “largest flower arrangement or structure” for a floral Airbus A380 at Dubai Miracle Garden.

And now Dubai has added another impressive feat to its ever-growing list, for the world’s largest Christmas Bauble Ornament – and you won’t be able to miss it if you’re heading to The Dubai Mall to do some Christmas shopping.

Weighing an astounding 1,100 kilograms, the metallic bauble ornament was made bespoke for The Dubai Mall this year by American design firm Venue Arts.

Measuring almost 6.597m in height with a diameter stretching 4.689m wide to create a perfect sphere, it took two days to assemble and hoist into pride of place within The Dubai Mall.

Visitors can see the Guinness World Record awarded bauble ornament in the mall’s Star Atrium, alongside a further four huge ornaments.
