Construction on The Palm, Jebel Ali, began in October 2002 and is expected to be completed in mid 2008.

Once it has been completed, it will be encircled by the Dubai Waterfront project.

The project, which will be 50 percent larger than the Palm Jumeirah, will include six marinas, a water theme park, 'Sea Village', homes built on stilts above the water, and boardwalks that circle the "fronds" of the "palm" and spell out an Arabic poem by the visionary Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum , the highly ambitious , far-sighted ruler of Dubai.

In English, the lines read :-

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.

Wise words indeed!!

Dubai Waterfront is a conglomeration of canals and artificial islands, producing shelter in the shape of an arc around Palm Jebel Ali. It will also feature the 75km Arabian Canal leading from the coast into the desert and a major harbour.

Luxury residences on Palm Jebel Ali include Water Homes, located between the Crown and the Crescent of the Palm, linked by boardwalks and designed with a tropical island theme and Garden Home Villas, located on the fronds of the Palm, with stunning unobstructed ocean views. Other homes are known as Town Homes. They too will have a luxurious finish.

Palm Jebel Ali is one of three islands called the Palm Islands, which will increase Dubai's shoreline by a total of 520 kms. The other two are Palm Jumeirah and Palm Deira , which are also under development by Nakheel.

The Palm Jebel Ali is yet another fantastic, cutting-edge engineering feat being carried out in Dubai, just along the coast from yet another iconic structure, the 7-star Burj-al-Arab Hotel, which is shaped like the curved sail of a dhow, a traditional Arab fishing boat.

The Burj-al-Arab Hotel is the only 7-Star hotel in the world.Its quality has to be seen to be believed. It is also the tallest hotel in the world. See

Dubai, UAE, is well worth a visit, if only to witness all the marvellous modern engineering wonders that are transforming the desert. It is also an excellent stop-over for a few days en route to Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand or other Far East destinations and a very popular break on long-haul flights to Australia and New Zealand.

Dubai is fast becoming a leading world holiday/ vacation destination, with hundreds of luxurious hotels and apartments. New ones are springing up almost every month! The rate of development is phenomenal. The architecture is stunning!

It is also a fantastic destination for shopping, with gold and silver jewellery [or even jewelry to our American friends!] at very competitive prices ,being a speciality. There are many shopping malls of high quality shops in Dubai. Cruise liner passengers flock to the many jewellers / jewelers shops. Many visitors also fly in just for the shopping. The ladies love it in Dubai!! 0

As a break from shopping, they might also take in a trip into the peaceful, empty desert surrounding the developed coastal part of Dubai, or even visit the popular Camel Races for a flutter!!

That really is an unique experience, even though they may get the hump if they back the wrong camel!!
