The biggest pyramid in the world will no longer be in Egypt; rather, it will be in Dubai. As part of a new project called Falcon City, Dubailand will be adding replicas of the world's wonders that will, from an aerial view, resemble the shape of a falcon. The buildings will be used for commercial and residential purposes. It will be a blend of theme parks, luxury living, shopping and adventure.

They will also be adding their own versions of The Tower of Pisa, The Great Wall of China, The Eiffel Tower, Dubai Grand Pyramid, Dubai Taj Mahal, Town of Venice, as well as the Dubai Hanging Gardens of Babylon in Falconcity which will have eco condos, open-air dining, cafes and a garden which looks over FalconCity Mall. There will be Villas in multiple styles, from Santa Fe designs to Aegean architecture.

It sounds incredible, but the official site isn't exactly up to par with most of Dubai's web designs, but that's OK. We can still get a pretty good flavor by looking at the images and checking out the video. OK sure, it's cheesy, but still, the video gives an awesome sense of the place! It's worth watching til the end if you want a chuckle.
