Dubai, 2020—It’s a date!
Four-thousand-foot-tall skyscrapers, a theme park three times the size of Walt Disney World in Florida, palm-tree-shaped man-made islands built up from the sea to house hundreds of thousands of people, the world's largest indoor skiing slope, and a subway system that can run every 90 seconds...automatically.
How about Hydropolis? The $7,000-a-night underwater hotel.
The Hydropolis Underwater Hotel and Resort is a planned hotel which will be the world's first underwater luxury resort. It's situated 66 feet below the surface of the Persian Gulf, just off Jumeira Beach in Dubai. Reinforced by concrete and steel, its Plexiglas walls and bubble-shaped dome ceilings will enable guests to see fish and other sea creatures. It is basically divided into three sections: the land station, where guests will be welcomed; the connecting tunnel, which will transport people by train to the main area of the hotel; and the 220 suites within the submarine leisure complex. It will cover an area of 260 hectares, about the size of London's Hyde Park, and will cost an estimated £300 million. It is self-acclaimed to be a 10-star hotel.
It's even gonna have a "cosmetic surgery clinic"! Hell, if I'm paying $7K a night, I might as well get a little botox, too, right? Plus, it's gonna be 2020, and who knows how rough I'm gonna look?
