Palm Jumeirah: The World on Water
They say, the Arabs can do anything: constructing the tallest building in the world? Check! Developing man-made islands? Of course! Yes, we are talking about the Burj Khalifa and the magnificent Palm Jumeirah, both in Dubai. While the Burj is truly an engineering marvel and steals most of the limelight, the Palm Jumeirah is no less a feat. Consider this, the Palm Jumeirah is an artificial archipelago created using land reclamation (comprising Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira) and extends into the Persian Gulf. In addition, the archipelago also increases Dubai's shoreline by a massive total of 520 kilometers or 320 miles. That said, there is nothing you cannot find here that is there in the mainland city of Dubai: restaurants, malls, monorail, everything! Don't believe us? Look for yourself.
