Hi-Def Pics - The Extravagance that is Dubai

Over the last few years Dubai has become a household name of an exotic destination that everyone wants to visit one day. The Atlantis Palm Resort is the latest addition to Dubai's skyline, and to celebrate they had their grand opening this week. The rapid development in Dubai and across the UAE hasn't all been easy lately, as infrastructure problems (handling rising levels of waste to match massive development), and world financial struggles have slowed progress. Despite that, Wealthy Dubai continues to grow as new islands are built and new taller skyscrapers are planned to best the Burj Dubai, already the tallest in the world.
