Palm Jumeirah – A Unique Man-Made Island
We have repeatedly raved and ranted about Palm Jumeirah! Now we offer a visual treat of this extraordinary tangible reality. An icon for Dubai, the Palm Jumeirah is a marvel of design and engineering- and a natural candidate for the title of ‘Eight Wonder of the World.’ The first island in the Palm trilogy, it has risen from Arabian Gulf in just five years. The unique man-made island is built in the shape of a date palm tree and consists of a trunk, a crown with 17 fronds, and a surrounding crescent island that will form a water-breaker. The Palm Jumeirah is set to become one of the world’s premier resorts with 32 beach front hotels joining Atlantis The Palm resorts and The Trump Hotel & Tower to welcome an estimated 25,000 hotel guests.
