Yes, Thomas from Syria has it right, what a disappointment The World is. The project is defunct now with the water eroding all the continents and the entire concept turning into a bust.

Seen from above, the project seems to remain unfinished and even gradually disappearing in the sea again. Wonder if this ambitious plan will prove to be a bridge too far.

The Dubai World Islands are an amazing man-made project, though you can't freely visit, and they are still unfinished. I was lucky to fly straight overhead on a recent business trip, and whilst there isn't much to see, they are a spectacular feat of man-made...More

第一次來到杜拜機場轉機,覺得很棒。設備很好,空間寬敞、雖然無線網路很摳,只給一小時,但是還可以連Dubai international hotel free wifi,這就不會有時間限制!下次來杜拜,一定要入境去走走!

the place is almost empty with only one beach club, almost nothing to see. Unless it is from an airplane, then the view is ok.

Where can we watch the World Cup outside hotels? (1 Replies)
Watching the WC in the comfort of the hotel rooms are just too dull - does anyone know where ordinary Iranians (Tehran) gather to watch matches (sports bars, other public areas), and is there any particular one (that is safe enough) to recommend to a foreigner? Thanks in advance :)

Visa stamp in israel (13 Replies)
I will be visiting Israel for the first time in October. I called the embassy in Australia to ask if it was still possible to enter without having a stamp in your passport. The answer from the embassy was yes, but no guarantee! Does anyone know if it is still possible to enter without a stamp?? I visit many places in the World, and I do not want to take the chance on being refused entry into countries that do not allow you in, if you have an Israel stamp.

Response fromOreet-S|
The answer you got at the Embassy is the right one - yes, there is a procedure for your visa to be stamped on a separate form - you need to request it at arrival - but there is no guarantee that you will be granted this privilege.
