Dubai Mega-Projects

Dubai is THE boomtown in the Middle East. The Sheikh family started early to liberate the Emirates from oil dependency and to diversify the economy. The Emirates are running out of oil by the end of the century, so they have been concentrating on tourism, real estate and commercial projects.

Dubai has become one big mega-project. The tallest building of the world, the first underwater hotel, artificial islands in the shape of date palms and the world, a whole new business district, the largest man-made marina, etc. etc.

The dream of Dubai is to become the Arab center of the modern world.
