Sights of Dubai - by Craig Hill

The World Islands in Dubai

December 2nd 2008 10:33
The World Islands is a man-made archipelago of 300 islands constructed in the shape of a world map, four kilometres off the coast of Dubai, UAE. Like Dubai's Palm Islands, they are built mainly using sand dredged from the sea.

All the artificial island projects are being developed by Nakheel Properties and were originally conceived by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai.

This is fascinating stuff. I don't know whether to be impressed or appalled. Either way, it's good to learn about it. Many thanks! P.
