With oil reserves dwindling Dubai has turned to a number of mega-billion-dollar projects. Among them the worlds tallest building, The Burj (by a long shot at about 3,000 ft, 9,000 m), a series of artificial palm shaped islands and another group of islands shaped like a map of the world to be populated by luxury homes. The latest mega-project is a series of amusement/theme parks and theme hotels. All of this aimed at making Dubai a tourist Mecca, in order to bring in a healthy income when the petro-dollars dry up.
