The World Islands
Dubai lead the world in the construction of artificial islands. When they created an artificial archipelago off its coast, the world was in awe. But what made it even more impressive was that it resembled the map of the world. Unfortunately these islands are slowly sinking into the ocean.
In 2009, the UAE received the 7th most tourists to its cities. It is advised for visitors to read up on the laws of the land before entering. A Russian woman was arrested for drinking alcohol in public during the fast of Ramadan.
