Yet Another Mega-Project

Just when you thought it was safe to crawl out from under the blanket, another gigantic project has been announced. Named 'Badawi', it's a 10km long strip of hotels in Dubailand. The 35 hotels will have a total of 29,200 rooms, 100 'theatres' and 1,500 restaurants. One of the hotels, the imaginatively-named 'Asia-Asia' will have 6,500 rooms and will, of course, be the world's biggest.

So what happened to the block on new developments at Dubailand?

Thirty thousand rooms,
Asia, Europa, Amriki:
Boggle the mind.

Someone please ask GN to start 'Properties 3'. I need something to supplement my toilet paper.

Does anyone know what kind of occupancy rate they must maintain to stay viable? I can't imagine the UAE gets *that* many visitors at once. Is any of this stuff subsidized?

How far will they go! When will this craziness stop?

It's Bawadi btw, not Badawi :)
