The Future Of Travel

The Future of Travel, from Villas Beneath the Sea to Journeys into Space

John O'Ceallaigh | August 8, 2016

Though we are in tumultuous times, post-Brexit, nobody has yet confronted the prospect of an enclave of Britain adopting the euro – but it is going to happen, and shortly. For an Austrian developer is set to make this unlikely eventuality a reality; and to understand the supposedly impossible, we need to venture somewhere that specialises in creating what has previously been inconceivable: Dubai.
There, back in 2003, a state-owned construction company began a project that would see an archipelago of 300 man-made islands emerge three miles off Dubai’s coast. Known as The World, and measuring four miles across, they now form a vast map of Earth if viewed from above. 
Plans to build on The World stalled when the emirate’s financial crisis struck, but six islands are now being turned into what Austrian developer Josef Kleindienst expects to become the world’s most exciting holiday destination – a six million sq ft development known as The Heart of Europe.
