What long time are you talking about? It took them just 3.5 years to construct a 40 towers complex up to this stage.

They will be 15 months to 18 months delayed when thwy are handed over but with 36 towers and four hotels the delay is just about the same as any other development in dubai ....

We certainly did

Highlights for me were:

'Arabian Adventure': Dune bashing followed by dinner under the stars in the desert

Helicopter trip (30 minutes: Airport - Creek - Burj Al Arab - Palm Jumeirah - Dubai Marina - Burj Al Arab - Airport)

Exploring Bur Dubai and Deira (Souks, Mosques, Dubai Museum)

Mall of the Emirates + Ski slope!

It looks quite neat, but I would have preferred to have some more difference in color between the towers
