Greatest Palm In The World.

Most of us already know who is DOnald Trump, but does anybody know about his son?
Donald Trump Jr. is executive vice president of development and acquisitions at The Trump Organization, which his father founded in 1980. Trump Jr.'s latest project is the 60-story Trump International Hotel & Tower, a condo hotel and residence on The Palm Jumeirah, a man-made island in the Persian Gulf.

Dubai is a very exciting place to be as a developer. In New York, if you want to build a two-story building, someone's going to spite you and say it's too tall. Over there, you have the freedom to build what you want. If it makes sense and works out economically, you are limited only by your imagination and the laws of physian.

The Dubai beaches are nice, very well-maintained and the water is very warm, so getting in the ocean is incredibly comfortable. The water is clear, and what's great about the Arabian Gulf is that at its deepest point, it's never really more than 18 meters [60 feet] deep. You don't have to deal with waves--it's a very serene setting. At night, if you look back from the beach up to Dubai itself and see all the construction going on, you feel like you're in two places at once.
