This photo from Google Earth shows two artificial islands created in the shape of palm trees. There will eventually be three islands, with a projected completion date around 2012. Together these islands will serve as a tourist destination, complete with over 100 luxury hotels, theme parks, water parks, marinas, shopping malls, restaurants and exclusive beach villas. The third, and largest island, is expected to house over a million people. Where is this?
