Dubai world islands, The World archipelago is consisting of 300 islands that have been constructed in the shape of the earth and featuring the different countries of the world. This is situated about 4 km off the Dubai coastline and composed mostly of sand that has been dredged on the shallow waters of the country.
Each of the manmade island will have a size that will range from 250, 000 – 900,000 square feet, with about 50 -100 metres of water from the other island. In totality the entire area will cover around 9 kilometres in length and 6 kilometres in width that has been surrounded by breakwater in an oval shaped. The only mode of transportation is via air transport or marine boat.
The Dubai is already known as the country that have several artificial islands develop, but by far ‘Dubai World Islands” is the most ambitious and very expensive to purchase up to this day. The World is first conceived by Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoumm, in which Nakheel Properties turned into reality.
Dubai is always known as the middle east shopping and tourism Mecca but with the addition of Dubai World Islands, the kingdom is no longer just that but will become a part of history as they are the only country that were able to replicate the entire world map.
Now anyone that has $250 million to spend on an island can purchase a country of his choice and make it his own sovereign state. In fact, several multi-national companies have already done that and now almost 70% of the Island is bought and paid for and some will start construction this year (2010).
So what do we expect from Dubai World islands, aside from its unique shape. Since the island is sold on the premise of four categories – estate homes, dream homes, private homes, dream resorts and islands of community hence anybody can build the island on the above categories only. After all, it is envision as the world greatest haven and ultimate relaxation paradise and nothing more. A more expensive way to enjoy and indulge in the luxury of sun, sea and complete privacy.
