The Ninth Wonder of the World

 This hub is basically a sequence of a previous one which discussed the Palm Jumeirah. Please follow the link: http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Eighth-Wonder-of-the-World

In this hub, there will be another wonder which is the Palm Jebel Ali.

Palm Jebel Ali is an artificial archipelago and is 50 % larger than Jumeirah palm, one of the largest artificial islands ever built by man. Construction started in 2002 and is expected to be finished in 2009. Also, it’s planned that Jebel Ali Palm will accommodate more than 1.7 million by the year 2022 which is a tremendous work for mankind to construct such a behemoth monument like that. This project will include: six marinas, a water theme park, 'SeaVillage', homes built on stilts above the water and many other works of art. The amazing thing about this palm that it will have a boardwalks which spells an Arabic Poem by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (Ruler of Dubai) which can be seen from outer space. The poem says:

Take wisdom from the wise
It takes a man of vision to write on water
Not everyone who rides a horse is a jockey
Great men rise to greater challenges.

 Also, Nakheel, developer of the palm, invited several architects to design one of the buildings on the palm. Royal Haskoning won the contest with their marvelous design that can be seen below:For more information, please visit the Palms official website: http://www.thepalm.ae/

Yeah ralwus, pretty sad, but on the other hand, they defied many rules. They wanted to be the best country in few years, trying to be elite and civilized, but ain't see that coming??? Civilizations aren't built by money only, but by years and years of experience, heritage, education, and that is not the case here.


ralwus 7 years ago

LOL, not weird at all. Just not what it seems. I'm still in shock at the news of Dubai's predicament.

Ralwus, of the arrogance you mentioned, I can't argue. It's a fact :) And yep, they are broken now, sinking in debts too. And, what about the alien poem? Will it be that weird once manifisted? lol...


ralwus 7 years ago

Man and his arrogance. It is quite a feat, but now they are broke aren't they? Pleading for help too from a neighbor. A most beautiful creation, but too pompous for my own taste. btw, don't feel bad when and if you discover the truth of my alien poem. Rock on my friend. CC

I would like to know how far above sea level it is, and what allowance was made for rising sea levels when it was designed. I will take a closer look, thanks for a great hub!

Thanks dear Uriel. There is a point here, people of this country are not hungry and not poor coz their leaders have done very well elevating the economy. But then, the other Arab leaders are just tyrants and they don't want to help their peoples.So, Emiraes is not responsible for other countries whom are starved by their leaders. Thanks you for your comment dear.

i guess it is a pretty cool site, but it cost a fortune. And I bet if all that money was spent on feeding that hungry people in the Arab world (talking out of some kind of experience) things would be much better. I was thinking lately, of this saying in arabic????? ????? ??? ?????that means we have to give our priority to the people's needs (food water ..blabaa) then focus on building skyscrapers. (that’s a thought). i guess what would people do with all those luxurious islands if they can't afford to eat? nice hub btw thanks for sharing

Hahaha, it's is a miracle dear ColdWarBaby, maybe a miracle leading eventually to painful conclusion. Who knows?

Thanks Peggy W, appreciate it.

Absolutely amazing site!


ColdWarBaby 7 years ago

It's certainly an amazing feat but, I'm sorry to say, I'm not sure whether I consider it a wonder or another abomination of human arrogance.

I will study it further before I commit to a final opinion.
