    We stayed on the Palm during a recent visit and it is an absolute engineering marvel - a fantastic destination which is worth a visit to understand the sheer scale of things (best appreciated by an aerial view)

    We were surprised however at how poorly connected it is via public transport. From where we were staying on the Palm, the public transport option involved a not inconsiderable walk to the monorail, which connects with a tram, which then connects with the main metro line. It really was a faff and so we chose either to get a taxi straight to downtown or take a taxi to the nearest metro station which wasn't particularly close.

    We ended up spending a fortune on taxis because of this - given how good the general infrastructure is in Dubai we were surprised at just how isolated one of its main attractions, was.

    An impressive achievement, created by man from zero. Some interesting sights here: The Lost Chambers Aquarium, Atlantis Aquaventure Aquatic Park. There is also a mall, Nakheel.
    For a panoramic view, go up to the terrace at The View at The Palm.

    The World Islands is a project a few kilometers off the Dubai shoreline.
    I had the opportunity to sail out to The World Islands in 2008 and it was very impressive at that time, but you could see then the sea was eroding the man-made islands at an alarming rate.
    On most every flight into and out of Dubai International Airport over the past 10 years I always kept an keen eye on The World Islands project. Just last week I was able to snap a few photo’s from the airplane and boy is this project a total disappointment.
    No longer can you make out the continents and the man-made barrier reef has almost disappeared!
    It simply shows you that without the proper planning Mother Nature takes back what was to be a great project!
