Antarctic Island – The World, Dubai
Yes, that is right! It is called the Antarctic Island… in Dubai. Antarctic in Dubai means one of the 300 man-made islands dredged from the sea floor. The islands were designed to reflect the shapes of the countries and continents.
This island is actually worth around $7 million and was given to the former Formula 1 racer Michael Schumacher by the crown prince of Dubai, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum as a retirement present. It includes a beautiful house, well-cared garden and astonishing beach! This island can be reached using a helicopter or a boat. After the skiing accident of Schumacher in December 2013, the fate of this private island is yet to unfold.
