NEW RECORDS IN THE MID­DLE EAST

Trav­ellers who roam the planet in search of su­perla­tives should high­tail it to the UAE, which has just added two en­tries to the Guin­ness World Records: the world’s tallest ho­tel (the Gevora in Dubai, with 75 floors), and the world’s long­est zip­wire (the Jebel Jais Flight, at 1.7 miles).

IS THIS THE BEST PUB ON EARTH?

A pub in Bel­gium has been voted the best beer des­ti­na­tion in the world by rate­beer.com – de­spite only open­ing on Sun­days. The niftily ti­tled In de Verzek­er­ing tegen de Grote Dorst (‘In the Guar­an­tee Against Great Thirst’) ser ves over 250 brews. Eleven bars in Bel­gium made the top 50; a mere two in Bri­tain made the cut.
