Interesting and Extreme Displays of Wealth That Can Only Be Seen in Dubai

The Palm Jumeirah Can Be Seen From Space

Palm Jumeirah is a group of artificial islands located on the Persian Gulf in Jumeirah, Dubai. It is the largest manufactured island and is home to pristine private stretches of white sand, lavish luxury villas, and luxury hotels. When viewed from above, the island is shaped like a palm tree.

The islands were made through the land reclamation process, with engineers creating the foundation using rock blasted from the nearby Hajar Mountains. The process of creating the islands is arguably one of the most audacious engineering feats ever undertaken. The $12 billion project started in 2001 and was completed in six years.
