Sup Travellers?! Dubai is on the verge of creating one of the world's greatest innovations; a climate-controlled city. It is uncertain how much the entire project will cost but it is definitely going to be crazy expensive. 

Called the Mall the of the World, the 48 million square-foot mini-metropolis would be the first city-sized enclosure to allow residents to completely avoid outside conditions for extended periods of time.

Using 4.5 miles of enclosed promenades, the vision of Dubai Holding, the developer of the project, is to allow visitors the ability to experience normal city life inside the controlled environment for weeks on end.

Included in the city will be 100 hotels and luxury apartments, a "wellness district" designed to attract medical tourists and the largest theme park in the world.

"Tourism is key driver of our economy and we aim to make the UAE [the United Arab Emirates] an attractive destination all year long," said Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, in a statement on Saturday. "This is why we will start working on providing pleasant temperature-controlled environments during the summer months."

This will be just another one of the millions of reasons why I want to visit Dubai. The city may cost a lot of money to build but it may make even more money in the end if all goes well. Therefore it is not a waste of money. I don't think that Dubai would spend billions [probably trllions] of dollars on something that wouldn't be profitable to them in the end. I'm just saying. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
