By: Admin on 11:19 Print It DDubai Hydropolis Underwater Hotel: The Hydropolis Underwater Hotel and Resort was a proposed hotel, designed by Prof. Roland Dieterle that would have been the world's first underwater luxury resort. It was planned to be situated 66 feet (20 m) below the surface of the Persian Gulf, just off Jumeira Beach in Dubai, and projected to cost $300 million to construct. The underwater hotel would have been one of the most expensive hotels on the earth. The hotel was conceived in 2006, was delayed in 2008, and as of June 2010 no construction or planned construction has occurred.

Fiji - have never been to the South Pacific but my son was in Fiji a few years ago, as part of a trip to Australia. He loved it there and bonded with the locals, and has remained friends with a few. It is my dream to travel the South Pacific Islands. Someday!

Fiji islands, Oceania - beautiful place, but lots of sea snakes
The majority of Fiji's islands were formed through volcanic activity started around 150 million years ago. Today, some geothermal activity still occurs on the islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni. Fiji has been inhabited since the second millennium BC. The country comprises an archipelago of more than 332 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited, and more than 500 islets, amounting to a total land area of circa 18,300 square kilometres (7,100 sq mi). The two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, account for 87% of the population of almost 850,000. The former contains Suva, the capital and largest city. Most of Fijians live on Viti Levu's coasts, either in Suva or in smaller urban centres. Viti Levu's interior is sparsely inhabited due to its terrain. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the Dutch and the British explored Fiji. Fiji was a British colony up until 1970; British occupation lasted almost a century. During World War II, the United Kingdom allowed for many thousands of Fijians to volunteer to aid in Allies' efforts via their attachment to the New Zealand and Australian army units; the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) consist of land and naval units. Because of the abundance of forest, mineral, and fish resources, Fiji is one of the most developed economies in the Pacific island realm. Today, the main sources of foreign exchange are its tourist industry and sugar exports. The country's currency is the Fijian dollar. Fiji has a local government system where city and town councils fall under the general supervision of the Ministry of Local Government and Urban Development. President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau became Fiji's president, after a high court ruled that the military leadership was unlawfully appointed after a 2006 coup.
