Dubai’s Man-Made Islands: An Elegant View from Above
Dubai’s second entry on this list proves that it is a marvel of elegant, lavish architecture. It took Dubai only eleven years to create these magnificent and unique man-made ‘palm islands’. The islands also help to explain why Dubai has in recent years become such a popular destination for tourists seeking luxury.
The creation of the three palm islands began in 2001 and took only seven years to complete. The islands aren’t just an aesthetic addition to the city, but they are sites of exclusive private residences and luxurious hotels. However, while tourists and local might enjoy the islands, their construction resulted in changes to wildlife in the area.
