A graphic image shows a cluster of 300 islands, shaped like a world map. There are only so many islands in the world but the dream of owning one, for the super-rich anyway, is becoming very much a reality -- in Dubai. The islands, shaped like a world map, are gradually surfacing on Gulf waters, making the dream of procuring a private water retreat within an ultra-luxurious setting very real indeed. In this affluent emirate, construction is being taken to such extremes that there are no boundaries set by any lack of suitable real estate. (AFP/Getty Images)
