The Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira are three 12-square-mile, man-made islands being reclaimed off the coast of Dubai. Dubbed the "Eighth Wonder of the World" and billed as the largest land-reclamation project in the world, the islands will create a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment areas. With 14,000 labourers working day and night, the first of three palm-shaped artificial islands, Palm Jumeirah, is nearing completion. On 30 November 2007, the palm will open to some 4,000 residents. When fully complete by 2010, the Palm Jumeirah will be an offshore city, with some 60,000 residents and at least 50,000 workers in 32 hotels and dozens of shops and attractions.
