Dubai from a helicopter 2

Is Europe developing? America? Probably not, when compared with the metropolitan areas of Asia and China, but this is especially noticeable in Dubai. Even if you come here at intervals of 1-2 years, you will notice changes. And what about a dozen years, because only 20 years ago there was a desert here! And there is no need to once again talk about petrodollars, this is just an exhaustible resource in the right hands. Already, the lion’s share of Dubai’s income is tourism and business.

Welcome aboard the Agusta helicopter, which the New Zealand pilot took to the air from the helipad of the world's most famous hotel, the Burj Al Arab, to make a circle above the metropolis.

A separate elevator goes up to the famous helipad, in the hall traditionally irrationally large attendants meet.

Wonderful helicopter Agusta A109E is already waiting at the top. This is a representative of a family of light multipurpose helicopters designed by the Italian firm AgustaWestland in the late 1960s. The first deliveries of helicopters began in 1976. During the period from 1976, more than 700 helicopters of various modifications were delivered to various countries of the world. The cost of such a machine is estimated at $ 6 million.Subjectively, according to my feelings, this is the best helicopter I flew

Flew?

Such a city as Dubai can be fully considered only from above. In the old part, helicopters do not fly, there is an airport, so helicopters run between the Dubai Marina area and the skyscraper zone in the center.

Palm Jumeirah is an artificial island, the construction of which began in 2001 and already in 2006 the first houses appeared there. Construction is going on even now.

Palm has a large number of hotels, the main of which is Atlantis, and the best, of course, Jumeirah "Zabeel Saray"!

Palm Jumeirah is an artificial island in the form of a palm tree. It consists of a trunk, 16 leaves, and a crescent surrounding the island, which forms an 11-kilometer breakwater. The size of the island is 5 kilometers by 5 kilometers and its total area is more than 800 football fields. The island is connected to the mainland by a 300-meter bridge, and the crescent is connected to the top of a palm tree by an underwater tunnel.

It is said that the water between the branches of the palm tree stagnates and in order to solve this problem, three years ago they constructed underwater pumps that create water movement.

We are turning towards the sea ...

The World complex, an artificial archipelago consisting of several islands, with a general shape resembling the continents of the Earth, is located 4 kilometers from the coastline. The total area of ​​the archipelago is 55 square kilometers, which makes it the largest artificial archipelago in the world.

From the waves protects the breakwater:

As of today, 90% of the islands have been sold, BUT, here are just two of them now built up. They promise that everything will be completed by the Expo 2020 exhibition.

Paradise? It seems ... But when a noisy neighbor settles nearby, it will not be so lonely

While the expats are working hard, the sheikhs ride on scooters. And maybe this is not the sheikhs

On the horizon, the most pleasant area of ​​the city is Dubai Marina:

Dubai Marina is one of the most fashionable yacht marinas in the world. Now it is “Dubai Venice”, several pleasant canals and restaurants on the shore.

Who said that in Dubai there is no greenery? How much you want. With 24-hour watering and fertilizer

26

But how to live in Dubai. Let me remind you, it was all a solid desert. Very well marked border between more and less prestigious housing. But both are worth millions ...

Golf, golf, golf ...

Amazing metropolis. I have been there many times already, but I never cease to be amazed at the pace of construction, the appetites of sheikhs, the beginning reorientation towards good taste in architecture and planning.
