Is this a real picture of villas in Dubai?

A photo on the internet of villas in Dubai has gone viral, with many convinced that the photo is fake or that it’s been Photoshopped.

The photo shows a series of villas in the Nad Al Sheba neighbourhood. And with the incredible symmetry and colour changes, it does look like something that’s been computer made.

Users on Reddit thought the photo of villas in Dubai had been edited. Another commented that it looked like something out of Sim City.

But the photo is actually a real one. It shows the Nad Al Sheba Villas near Sheikh Zayed Road built by Nakheel. There are 1,572 Mediterranean and Moroccan-style four and five bedroom villas.

The villas cost around AED2.3 million. And hopefully a subscription to Google Maps as it looks like it’ll be very easy to get lost around there!
