it's a drowning island, Not an island for Tom Hanks though.

Island should be where you get lost.

Its called The Palm.

I have been there, some of my cousins live in Dubai.

The trafic is killing litterally, and in a few years the islands will be all polluted because the new water can't get in.

just figure that out now? palm islands were made years ago, strange...... africa, the worlds poorest continent, houses Dubai, the worlds richest city makes you wonder (and if you're wondering, just 1 night at the hotel there is 17000 for 1 person in the cheapest room, and the cheap houses are about 10 million dollars)

I'm gonna have to admit those islands look so awesome, can you imagine having an entire one to yourself?!?
But they have too many negatives, like they constantly have to manually add more sand to them because the ocean/waves are eroding them away really quickly, and the islands have stopped the natural flow/currents in the water so the pH stuff is all messed up. It's not good for the sea life there

Yah, rich people buy the houses, and guess what? That place is like a ghost town, nobody is in there. Rich people buy those houses but not a single one has ever been inside, they either sell it off to someone or make it a stagnant vacation house.
