Have you ever noticed that Dubai is all things big and rich and super? These people have and want to have everything the best and the newest: Palm Islands, the Burj al Arab hotel, the second Louvre … And now they are ready to create 25 percent larger masterpiece than the iconic fountains at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.
The project will be held by Dubai’s prominent developer, Emaar Properties and the fountains currently will be the largest in the world. The fountains have no name so far but the whole world already knows that they will be capable of shooting water over 150 metres into the air, the height of a 50 storey building, and stretch over 275 metres!!! Frankly speaking, one of the biggest projects ever.
Sometimes it sees to me that this country has only money and no creativity. They still everything they like and make it a bit bigger in order to make the headlines. The state is going to spend $218 millions!!! The fountains will shoot 22,000 gallons of water in the air at any given moment and by the way, you can win a cash prize of $27,225 if you are creative enough to invent the best name to these fountains. The structure is scheduled to be operation by 2009. And I just wonder, whether poor tourists will have enough time to enjoy the whole attractions of Dubai?
