United Arab Emirates
The United Arab Emirates is a constitutional federation of seven
emirates; Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al-Qaiwain, Ras
al-Khaimah and Fujairah. The federation was formally established on 2
December 1971. The United Arab Emirates (UAE)
occupies an area of 83,000 sq km along the south-eastern tip of the
Arabian Peninsula. Qatar lies to the west, Saudi Arabia to the south
and west, and Oman to the north and east. The capital and the largest
city of the federation, Abu Dhabi, is located
in the emirate of the same name. Four-fifths of the UAE is desert, yet
it is a country of contrasting landscapes, from awe-inspiring dunes to
rich oases, precipitous rocky mountains to fertile plains. The United Arab Emirates,
one of the world's fastest growing tourist destinations, has all the
right ingredients for an unforgettable holiday, sun, sand, sea, sports,
unbeatable shopping, top-class hotels and restaurants, an intriguing
traditional culture, and a safe and welcoming environment.
The Palm Island, Dubai UAE - Megastructure Development
An awe-inspiring engineering feat, Dubai Palm Islands is definitely the
largest artificial islands on earth. These Islands are three man made islands in
the form of massive palm trees connected to the beaches of Dubai. The first
island is the Palm Jumeirah, Jebel Ali Palm second and the third is the Palm
Deira which is the biggest of them all. This artificial archipelago located off
the coastline of United Arab Emirates in Persian Gulf.
project was commissioned by Sheikh Mohammed in an effort to maximize beachfront
property. Dubai's palm tree-shaped resort island on land built from the sea will
contribute 120 km of beaches. Aside from the construction of the ambitious
expansion, there is also the problem of constructing a mini city, which consists
of 4,500 high-end residential homes, miles of roads, luxurious hotels and many
amenities that will require basic human resources including electricity, safe
drinking water and many more. This enormous project will position Dubai as one
of the top tourist destinations in the world.

islands have appeared and that they must satisfy. Dubai is an emirate that open
sea about 50 km (an estimate) and the sites required for building projects are
on the beach. To view course and especially to "park" in front of the yacht's
property or even assembly.
Well when the beach was not available, and
demand persists, the beach had invented. And it appeared artificial islands.
Hence so sophisticated forms of the islands: they had to provide a larger
opening to the ocean.

product 'high-end, the latest wrinkle in the most creative developers
metropolis. A new source of land, location of the trick of the planet Earth! The
job went, the two islands were settled immediately, with mixed development,
spectacular, exorbitant, and finally in Dubai's specific style ... In parallel
to the World archipelago started building and other projects are still on the
drawing board Nakheel, developer. But crisis compels us to winter a little ...
Where is the dream of similar islands: In Lebanon, wants to build a cedar
shaped islands, the symbol of this country. Russia wants to try an island / an
archipelago in Black in Sochi at the 2014 Olympics, at least that is speaking
through the past years. Also in Japan there are several large airports built on
The Palm Islands are artificial peninsulas
constructed of sand dredged from the bottom of the Persian Gulf by the Belgian

The sand is sprayed by
the dredging ships, which are guided by DGPS, onto the required area in a
process known as rain-bowing because of the arcs in the air when the sand is
