Capital Gate Building: The Leaning Tower of Abu Dhabi

 Abu Dhabi's 160 metre-high Capital Gate skyscraper leans a gravity-defying 18 degrees to the west and has been verified as the world's furthest leaning man-made tower by the Guinness Book of World Records.

It has more than four times the lean of the Leaning Tower of Pisa at about 3.99 degrees. The 35-storey tower, which opened less than a year ago after five years of construction, is fast becoming one of Abu Dhabi's most famous landmarks.

A visit to the skyscraper requires a switch of elevators along the way, because the lifts can't operate all the way up the leaning building in one go. The flashy lobby features an enormous glass chandelier that screams luxury.

The extravagance continues high up in the building: the five-star hotel Hyatt Capital Gate occupies the 18th to 33rd floors. It includes 189 guestrooms including the Presidential suite, which costs from approximately $3500.
