Already 90% completed, The World is a set of reclaimed islands in the shape of the continents of the world. Already most of the islands have been been bought by the rich and famous with Richard Branson, Vijay Singh, Michael Schumacher and David Beckham being linked to the archipelago.
4. Palm Island
Built on reclaimed land, the Palm Jumeirah is shaped like a palm tree consisting of a trunk with 17 fronds. The Palms is the self declared Eighth Wonder of the World. The resort will feature a monorail that will transport the 2,000 – 3,000 people on and off the resort every hour! The Queen Elizabeth 2 has been sold to The Palms and is to feature as a floating hotel!

This underwater hotel will be totally constucted in Germany! It will contain 220 suites all with panoramic views of the seabed with rooms priced around 500 dollars a night which isnt that bad really.
