Dubai is all about gliz, glamour and gold. From machines that actually dispense real gold to camel parking facilities at the supermarket, we bring you the best of ‘only in Dubai’ moments from across the web.
Yes, you are seeing this correctly, it’s a machine that distributes gold just like a CoinStar but for really, really rich people!
The machine itself is also gold-plated and is designed much like a vending machine dispensing 320 items made of gold. This includes the obvious: gold bars and coins but also includes more unusual items like gold gift boxes containing symbols such as the maple leaf or a kangaroo. You can find one of these strange machines in the Emirites Palace Hotel.
