    Hello dear Dubai friends,
    I am wondering about this tremendous construction plans and fantastic new ideas. But: what is going on, if one day all the UAE oil wells are dried out? What will be the source for the needed huge amounts of electricity? May be the sun can serve with its energy. I hope, the exspected millions of new Dubai inhabitants and all officials are aware of this serious question.

  12. Erik said,


    It is because the wells are running dry that they are now developing a major tourist industry (among becoming a big player in trade, and financial markets)…

    Hi, i’m from Argentina, i’m 15 and i’ve been to Walt Disney World this year and i was amazed. I really’d love to visit Dubailand, it seems it’ll be absolutely fantastic. I love roller coasters and that kind of games and it seems this project’ll have a bit of everything. Good luck 🙂

  17. Farah said,

    I think this is a serious waste of money and resources. We Middle Easterners should be ashamed of ourselves for spending these resources on such an affair as this.

  18. Farah said,

    Please do not delete my earlier comment. I think you should keep the negative comments on this page. If you delete it, it will be proof of your anti-democratic leanings.

  32. Mazin said,

    I just would like to inform you guys that the UAE does not rely on oil in its economy. Oil in dubai is only 10% of it’s economy. The rest of the economy relies on tourism, secondery industries and investments. Dubai is producing less oil year by year.

    millions of people around the world are starving and the muslim leader likes to waste his money on all this materialistic objects its not right.
    and most of this stuff is not really required or needed.
    this stuff is useless. He should be helping the needy big time atleast if hes gonna do that with his money.
    My Allah guide all of us in the right path and take us to jannah inshallah.

    • Mikey said,

      I whole heartedly agree!!

  40. Robert said,

    How about adding an Olympic-class, 250-meter Velodrome with a retractable roof and wood track? While they’re at it, why not plan to be Summer Olympic-capable and make a bid for 2020 or 2024? . . . If the country is handling basic social needs thru either the public or private sector, I see nothing wrong in funding this extravaganza with the excess.

  41. Badusha said,

    wow this is a great project in the world. i would work there as an Animator.

  42. muhammad mohsin said,
