Well, when you think that you've seen it all, just come to Dubai - let this city surprise you again. First, there was a seven star hotel on an artificial island. Then, it was the tallest building in the world (that is soon going to loose its title in just a couple of years to another building in, you guessed it, Dubai). The biggest indoor theme park was also built in Dubai, and the opening of the world's longest zip line is just around the corner. With the EXPO 2020 approaching fast, you can be sure that some new exciting announcements will be appearing in your news feed any time soon. But here at CharterClick, we are particularly excited about anything involving water, boats and luxury, so the following announcement literally made our hearts race.
Coming in 2020, The Floating Venice will become another perfect reason to rent a yacht in Dubai, and race towards the World Islands. What is The Floating Venice, you might ask? Well, technically it's a habitable boat, that would closely resemble a Venetian district, gondolas included. This futuristic piece of art would feature two types of living spaces - above and below the water level. So if you got board with an underwater suite in Atlantis, you should be eagerly expecting the opening of The Floating Venice. Bars, shops and luxury hotels will, of course, be also a part of the structure, so you don't have to come back to the mainland for your entertainment or weekly grocery shopping. But wait, there's more - in addition to 12 floating beaches and a couple more transparent pools, The Floating Venice will feature a lot of dome-shaped spherical structures, that were heavily inspired by Italian basilicas. The first five star luxury floating resort will also feature a full replica of Piazza San Marco - Venice's famous town square. And if all this state of the art architecture is still not that impressive, then maybe the 400 square feet underwater coral reef will finally convince you to check the place out. You will be able to get to your private getaway in the middle of the Gulf by a private boat, seaplane or a helicopter, which, we assume, could be provided by the establishments based at The Floating Venice.
Being developed by Kleindeinst group, the project, although obviously being in early stages of development, looks very promising, and will definitely keep on attracting more and more attention, as it comes closer to its opening date. Please check the video below to get a better understanding of how this whole place may end up looking. But do we really need to wait till 2020 to visit the World Islands? We don't think so - and that's why a trip to a man-made archipelago would be a great choice for everyone, who would want to see Dubai from a different perspective. This hidden Dubai landmark just keeps on changing every single day, so every time you go there, you can be sure you'll spot something new. Just book your trip for 5 or more hours, and you will have plenty of time to explore.
