That kind of wealth is quite enough in the neighbor country of the region. But exactly the Emirates are famous for their landscapes, the landscapes have been created artificially in order to overtake and surpass as well as to eclipse and impress as much as ever possible. The aim has been achieved. And the best outstanding project in that sphere is the mock islands of the Emirates.
