they used it because it's way cheaper than the usual process ( just digging underground) used for channel tunnel for example!

It way cheaper if it's in relatively shallow water over fairly short distances.

Imagine trying to empty out a section of the english channel when building the channel tunnel :o.

How far out from the mainland is the furthest point of the palm?

That's right, I didn't think of that. The water is very shallow where the palm is built, only about 10m I think.

I think it's 13*8km, or maybe 13*6. Can't remember exactly.

Once the palm is complete, and the marina is complete, and it's all landscaped... wow. Paradise.

This stuff looks very cool.


I'm starting to think that Dubai is like an oversized Las Vegas rather than a city with a business and industrial base. I don't see any large ships or ports when I see pictures of Dubai. I can't wait to visit this place. They're doing great things there.

You should see its 2 MASSIVE ports. That's one of the reasons why it's been so successful in the last 20 years.
