The world's largest manmade island, Palm Jumeirah currently serves as one of the major attractions of the city.
Sitting in the lap of Persian Gulf water, the World is an artificial assortment of small islands put together to form a rough map of the world.
One of the three man-made islands in Dubai, Palm Jebel Ali was supposed to be largest when completed. Its construction work started in 2002 and the architecture plan was expected to house more than 250,000 people. The island was designed in such a way that it would be fifty percent larger than Palm Jumeirah and would have six marinas, a waterpark named 'sea village' and broad walks with words of poems written by Sheikh Mohammed. The construction work of Jebel Ali was put to a halt because of the financial and economic crash in 2008 in Dubai. It has been on hold since then even though its developer, Nakheel, has stated it to be a long -upcoming project. People and investors had already paid about 30-50% for their houses and property in Jebel Ali.
As of now, only Palm Jumeirah has been completed and is in a functional state.
