    Dubai: Wealthiest Country in the World?

    (The Dubai Waterfront. When completed it will become the largest waterfront development in the world.)



    (All of this was built in the last 5 years, including that island that looks like a palm tree.)



    (The Palm Islands in Dubai . New Dutch dredging technology was used to create these massive man made islands. They are the largest artificial islands in the world and can be seen from space. Three of these Palms will be made with the last one being the largest of them all.)



    (Upon completion, the resort will have 2,000 villas, 40 luxury hotels, shopping centers, movie theaters, and many other facilities. It is expected to support a population of approximately 500,000 people. It is advertised as being visible from the moon.



    (The World Islands . 300 artificially created islands in the shape of the world. Each island will have an estimated cost of $25-30 million.)



    (The Burj al-Arab hotel in Dubai . The worlds tallest hotel. Considered the only ‘7 star’ hotel and the most luxurious hotel in the world. It stands on an artificial island in the sea.)



    (Hydropolis, the world’s first underwater hotel. Entirely built in Germany and then assembled in Dubai , it is scheduled to be completed by 2009 after many delays.)



    (The Burj Dubai. Construction began in 2005 and is expected to be complete by 2008. At an estimated height of over 800 meters, it will easily be world’s tallest building when finished. It will be almost 40% taller than the the current tallest building, the Taipei 101.)



    (This is what downtown Dubai will look like around 2008-2009. More than 140 stories of the Burj Dubai have already been completed. It is already the worlds tallest man made structure and it is still not scheduled to be completed for at least another year. )



    (The Al Burj. This will be the centerpiece of the Dubai Waterfront. Once completed it will take over the title of the tallest structure in the world from the Burj Dubai.)



    (Recently it was announced that the final height of this tower will be 1200 meters. That would make it more than 30% taller than the Burj Dubai and three times as tall as the Empire State Building .)



    (The Burj al Alam, or The World Tower . Upon completion it will rank as the world’s highest hotel. It is expected to be finished by 2009. At 480 meters it will only be 28 meters shorter than the Taipei 101.)



    (The Trump International Hotel & Tower, which will be the centerpiece of one of the palm islands, The Palm Jumeirah.)



    (Dubailand. Currently, the largest amusement park collection in the world is Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando , which is also the largest single-site employer in the United states with 58,000 employees. Dubailand will be twice the size.)



    (Dubailand will be built on 3 billion square feet (107 miles^2) at an estimated $20 billion price tag. The site will include a purported 45 mega projects and 200 hundred other smaller projects.)



    (Dubai Sports City. A huge collection of sports arenas located in Dubailand.)



    (Currently, the Walt Disney World Resort is the #1 tourist destination in the world. Once fully completed, Dubailand will easily take over that title since it is expected to attract 200,000 visitors daily.)



    (The Dubai Marina is an entirely man made development that will contain over 200 highrise buildings when finished. It will be home to some of the tallest residential structures in the world. The completed first phase of the project is shown. Most of the other high rise buildings will be finished by 2009-2010.)



    (The Dubai Mall will be the largest shopping mall in the world with over 9 million square feet of shopping and around 1000 stores. It will be completed in 2008.)



    (Ski Dubai , which is already open, is the largest indoor skiing facility in the world. This is a rendered image of another future indoor skiing facility that is being planned.)



    (Some of the tallest buildings in the world, such as Ocean Heights and The Princess Tower , which will be the largest residential building in the world at over a 100 stories, will line the Dubai Marina.)



    (The UAE Spaceport would be the first spaceport in the world if construction ever gets under way.) http://www.architecturelist.com/2008/03/05/351/

    Beautiful!

    I wonder who bought all the bankrupt businesses that built all this when the recession hit?

    It is a good strategy. They are depending on oil and building all that stuff for tourism for the time when it is all gone (no more oil).

    Seems reasonable and what this guys are doing is absolutely amazing.
    The men's and fathers' movement needs to make sure it never sees females as the enemy,
    but only misandry--whether from females or from males.
    If not, we'll become like the bigoted feminists that this movement was formed to oppose.

    Fascinating yes

    I found this info on wiki

    Tightwads!

    Risking their necks for $10 a day on a high-rise skyscraper. Yes of course males are just born privileged. Some gal on the net said all men were born with silver spoons in their mouths. No ma'am, some women are just born with shit4brains and will say anything.

    Re: Dubai: Wealthiest Country in the World?

    I would not like to be staying in an underwater hotel. What's the word for it? It's a phobia...

    But anyway I'd love to visit all those places...but I imagine the cost to be totally out of my range of capability.

    Zuberi,

    Do you really have to continuously rain down apocalyptic messages on nearly every thread....it's so damn depressing

    Dude...! I don't know about you, but I would prefer NOT to think about apocalypses on a constant basis!

    You can thank our Vatican controlled politicians and power hungry elites for what will come!!!!

    I've already grasped the fact that obscene wealth isn't power! Some day those greedy bastards who are taking our jobs and destroying the economy will have to learn the hard way!!
