Check this out. A land development company in UAE is master planning/developing a set of 300 islands in the shape of "The World ". These islands will consist of various resorts, hotels, fauna, villages, homes, etc. Hurry up, and you too can be an investor in this unique development. I've never been to UAE, but, from a friend, the sand there is incredible. I wouldn't mind my own unique island retreat on The World.
