WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW AMAZING PALM ISLAND DEVELOPMENT!!!!!!!

It is very creative of Dubai to come up with island ideas. I love these homes on that islands but I wish it will be more like custom homes instead same looking homes like in southwestern USA. I love it in the general!

Anyone have nightime images of The Palm? I think it will look very awesome when you fly over the Palm Island and you can see "palm" glow on the ocean.

I am afraid but the island will drown due to global warming within the next 50 years.

Hmm I doubt it. They'll probably build an enormous retaining wall. And it would have to be the biggest in the world. After all, it's in Dubai!

Well you know how Dubai is... They can afford to building anything to avoid natural disasters or else. I am sure they have nothing to worry about it.

Yeah that what I asked earlier. I hope anyone have that pictures of The Palm at nightime.

I wonder if it is safe to swim at the water at that island? How deep between lands is it?

It is a hotel on the trunk of the Palm Jumeriah. I believe it is due to start construction in 1 or 2 months.

The picture posted by Imre is Atlantis on the crescent of the Palm; like DocShergar said construction of Trump is on the Trunk of the palm and will supposedly start in 2 months, fingers crossed that they will and the design will have no changes
