Go Dubai

I have been to Dubai but that was only for a few hours in transit on the way to UK. In case you didn't know Dubai is one of the seven emirates (the 2nd largest) that make up the United Arab Emirates(UAE). Dubai city is a vibrant city and is fast emerging as a world business hub.

My architect friend who resides there was telling me of the property boom taking place there. This resulted from it's government's decision to diversify from the traditional oil based economy to one that is service and tourism oriented.

You should check out the newly developing Dubai properties in IMPZ. It stands for Dubai's International Media Production Zone, which seeks to create a unique cluster environment for media production companies from across the world.

The Palm Islands, also referred to as The Palm Dubai and The Palms consists of three largest man-made islands in the world, which are being built on the coast of Dubai. It's an amazing work of engineering.

Those Palm Islands certainly look interesting... I wonder if they have any effect on the wildlife?

Lilian: Thanks. She already has one.

Walter: I read somewhere about some damage to the underwater wildlife and some erosion problems. But I guess that comes with any new development.
