Dubai’s Palm Islands

An awe-inspiring engineering feat, Dubai’s Palm Islands are the largest artificial islands on Earth. There are three man made islands in the form of massive palm trees connected to the beaches of Dubai. The first island was the Palm Jumeirah, the second was Jebel Ali Palm and the third was the Palm Deira which is the biggest of them all. This artificial archipelago is located off the coastline of the United Arab Emirates in the Persian Gulf. Watch the video to learn how Dubai strived to treble its visitor numbers.

  1. Wow! These are absolutely amazing! Definitely a place I need to put on my bucket list, as you don’t find beautiful “man-made” island like this just anywhere. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I understand the luxury in it, and the beauty it holds. However what I cant seem to understand is that are we not in love with the raw and real nature without man having to create out of money? The world is filled with UNESCO heritages and beaches and islands and cities that we as humans are slowly destroying. To me, this message only sends out ” Hey, destroy anything, man kind can rebuild it, never mind history.”
    Im just saying…:)

  3. WOOOW..Its awesome video. Its like behind the scenes move. I saw the developing architecture of this, they were doing all efforts to put him in unique pattern. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Beaches of Dubai are all spectacular feat of engineering for each person to witness. I hope someday I can personally witness the Palm Islands brilliance.
