In the next couple of years, I cannot think of any country embarking on such a massive project. Dubailand will simply blow your mind away. It will be the mecca of commercialisation of the highest order. Check this out:

Dubailand will cover an area of 3 billion square feet
Dubailand has 7 themes: Theme parks, culture & art, science & planetariums, sports & sports academies, wellbeing & health, shopping & retail and resorts & hotels
Dubailand has a total of 45 mega projects
Projects currently operational include: Autodrome, Polo & Equestrian Club and Al Sahra Desert Resort
Dubailand expects a footfall of 200,000 visitors a day and 15 millions visitors a year once fully operational
The diverse projects under Dubailand include theme parks, eco-tourism projects, shopping malls, restaurants and residential units that are being developed by UAE, GCC and international investors
Dubailand will have a minimum of 55 hotels within its geographical location
Dubailand projects a population of 2.5 million people, which includes tourists, workers and residents, once fully operational

Last month... I was at the ATM (Arabian Travel Market) exhibition..for the sole purpose of visiting the Dubailand pavilion. Look at some of the project details...there's the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco, Eiffel Tower, London's just unbelievable! And Universal Studio will be there as well.

2010....the magic number....I think I should be around to witness history in the making...don't envy me!

If I hadn't read about it already I would believe it'a joke. So, Dubai wants to make better (worse?) than Las Vegas?

It's weird how this is colourful
All is colourful and not our Eiffel tower
