The Infamous DXB series - pt 3 of 3 - The Palm - #173


The final iconic infamous addition to any city... The Palm. A man made expanse of real estate meets beach. An ecological nightmare? A financial boon? A shimering white elephant? All is yet to be seen.

The one thing I can say is it looks like nothing else I've ever seen...

and you're right, I think nobody has seen anything like that before!
A really cool series!

I think I'm going to save some money to buy an island... ;)

People are dying to get one place there. I can not imagine, how it would be like, living there

It's beginning to take shape now. It's what having 24 hour working can do.

It's definitely like nothing I've seen. I don't know what I think about it exactly yet. Although I just showed a coworker your photo, and it sparked a whole conversation about whether or not this kind of opulence of buying your own island is a good thing or not. Surprisingly there were a couple of strong opinions about it here!

Congrats on your nomination for the Photobloggies. I am fascinated with this new complex of islands. Have you set foot on it yet?
