The location? In Emirates Palace (UAE) in Abu Dhabi was displayed from 16 to 29 December 2010 and since then was not another tree that expensive.
Want more extravagance? This 13.1 m (43.2 ft) tree was covered in 181 items of jewelry: diamonds, pearls, emeralds, sapphires and other precious stones. Items of jewelry studded with scores of precious stones are draped on the tree’s branches, along with more traditional baubles and lights.

The  Guinness World of Records gave the tree a spot in their records for the World’s Most Expensive Christmas Tree.
“While the tree alone is worth a mere $10,000, the jewelry adds more than $11m to the value”, said the hotel’s general manager Hans Olbertz.
The vast majority of the population of the oil-rich UAE is Muslim. But Mr Olbertz said he did not think the tree would offend local sensibilities. The tree sits in the sumptuous lobby of the 302-room hotel, which is reportedly decorated with gold leaf.
If you think you can go there and steal the jewelry, think again, because of the 24/7 security, four security guards closely monitoring the space plus the security cameras.

Now you have an idea on how you decorate your Christmas Tree this year: with a lot of jewelry but watch out the thieves may still them.
