New islands appeared on the map: Dubai’s Palm Islands
The city of Dubai has undergone a tremendous expansion in recent years. In terms of population, it actually grew from about 500,000 inhabitants (1990) to more than 3.3 million (2020). The city, known to be one of the most prominent business centers in the world, has grown considerably in terms of surface as well. It has spread over more than 300 kilometers of coastline and inland, both on land and at sea. This led to the creation of a cluster of man-made islands, the Palm Islands and The World Archipelago.
The evidence is everywhere, but some people just can't handle it.
