Planners in Dubai have created plans for Pharaoh’s Pass in the UAE which will literally split the Arabian Gulf to the sea bed, creating a giant aquarium and huge tourist attraction.
While still very much in the development phase, the plan would involve splitting the sea in half, echoing the famous story of Moses parting the Red Sea.
Once the sea has been parted, it would be turned into a major tourist attraction. And another global landmark for the region. As you can see from the video below, it’s a huge project.
“The Pharaoh’s Pass will be one of the world’s wonders, as the sea will be split by a transparent glass wall,” says Abdullah Al Shehhi from planners The National Advisor Bureau.
“It will be considered the largest in the world, with high safety and security features and enough thickness so that it prevents leakage.”
Which is good to know.
The plans could be incorporated into The Palm in Dubai or at Lulu Islands in Abu Dhabi. And the reclaimed land in would include cafes, seafood restaurants, shops and a marine park. And some seriously stylish nearby floating villas.
