Er, UAE/Dubai is where in the world? XD;

But then again, politicians love to make all these granular talks, yet only are able to fulfill the promises half of the time. Sometimes, construction is bound to be delayed, and by then a "bigger/taller" building pops up already.

Thought it's either Singapore or South Korea or something that was trying to build some hanging garden between 4 skyscrapers? Ah I don't remember the details...

So this in Dubai, the UAE? Wow. Even though most would think the Middle-East is at a rough state at the moment, to think there's a great modern city like Dubai to make up for the bad things there. Sure would be good to go there one day... :D

their buildings actually went ahead of schedule. you haven't seen all of dubai. they are actually very aggressive builders.
And They are getting better than Asia on skyscrapers. Maybe even beating New York City on skyscraper count by 2010!!!
Even by 2010, most of the projects are done. Dubai beats a lot of records by 2010 or beyond.

Just to prove a point.

Although Dubai still has quite a bit of Islamic regulation, it's more lenient than the rest of the Middle East, so that's why businesses go there. Wonder why Abu Dhabi isn't mentioned. O.o

Frost, UAE (United Arab Emirates) is sandwiched between Oman and southern Saudi Arabia.

I read about this in National Geographic, they have an aerial picture of one of those palm things. You might be able to see it if you go to their website.

Wow those buildings look so cool and kind of scary to go on the last floor. But I would like to go in one of those buildings but not at the top

Uh...Its United Arab Emirates...What are you supposed to expect besides a great shorline, some of the most futuristic buildings as well as technology, and their job offers are well worth it. UAE is one of my top ten awaiting-to-visit countries in the world, along with Italy, Japan, Greece, Israel, and a couple others. I'd love to visit UAE. Its obviously a great way of living, and that's not an opinion.
