Dubailand a/k/a Coming Clean - #340


As promised, a space rocket... however I have to make an admission (and even feel a little guilty) - this shuttle, the skier, the giraffes and the fine elephants are all fakes, props or indeed adverts for the stupidly huge mega project that is simply called Dubailand.

It is too big to comprehend - it will actually be bigger than the current size of Dubai city. It will also be twice the size of all of the Disneyland/DisneyWorld resorts put together, currently the largest collection of amusement parks in the world.

Dubai - The Logical Conclusion To Sim City...

and here is the area around the as yet developed Dubailand... all a little Truman Show and how closely will Dubailand resemble Westworld where's Yul when you need him?

And they say everything's big inTexas! I've no doubt Dubailand will happen. I wish them luck. Will there be a men's side and a, er, family side?

Much amused. I didn't tumble 'till yesterday...

And don't forget Dubai World Central, the 6-runway airport complex down the road from DubaiLand that'll be twice the size of Hong Kong. Not Hong Kong airport - Hong Kong full stop...

Dubai really is growing very fast.
It has everything!

And all build right in the dessert too!

I guess when money is no object, every whim and fancy can easily become a reality. I have no doubt that Dubailand will happen.

Perhaps it will be a monstrous reality, but a reality none the less.

The sheer scale of Dubailand is hard to comprehend...
