Dubai Waterfront is a conglomeration of canals and artificial islands, producing shelter in the shape of an arc around Palm Jebel Ali.
It will also feature the 75km Arabian Canal leading from the coast into the desert and a major harbour.
Luxury residences on Palm Jebel Ali include Water Homes, located between the Crown and the Crescent of the Palm, linked by boardwalks and designed with a tropical island theme and Garden Home Villas, located on the fronds of the Palm, with stunning unobstructed ocean views.
Other homes are known as Town Homes. They too will have a luxurious finish.
Palm Jebel Ali is one of three islands called the Palm Islands, which will increase Dubai's shoreline by a total of 520 kms. The other two are Palm Jumeirah and Palm Deira , which are also under development by Nakheel.
The Palm Jebel Ali is yet another fantastic, cutting-edge engineering feat being carried out in Dubai, just along the coast from yet another iconic structure, the 7-star Burj-al-Arab Hotel, which is shaped like the curved sail of a dhow, a traditional Arab fishing boat.
The Burj-al-Arab Hotel is the only 7-Star hotel in the world.Its quality has to be seen to be believed. It is also the tallest hotel in the world.
Dubai, UAE, is well worth a visit, if only to witness all the marvellous modern engineering wonders that are transforming the desert.
Dubai is also an excellent stop-over for a few days en route to Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand or other Far East destinations and a very popular break on long-haul flights to Australia and New Zealand.
Sunshine is almost guaranteed in the United Arab Emirates!
Dubai is fast becoming a leading world holiday/ vacation destination, with hundreds of luxurious hotels and apartments.
New developments are springing up almost every month! The rate of development is phenomenal. The architecture is stunning!
It is also a fantastic destination for shopping, with gold and silver jewellery [or even jewelry to our American friends!] at very competitive prices, being a speciality.
There are many shopping malls of high quality shops in Dubai. Cruise liner passengers flock to the many jewellers / jewelers shops.
Many visitors also fly in just for the shopping. The ladies love it in Dubai!!
As a break from shopping, they might also take in a trip into the peaceful, empty desert surrounding the developed coastal part of Dubai, or even visit the popular Camel Races for a flutter!!
That really is an unique experience, even though they may get the hump if they back the wrong camel!!
