The Palm Jumeirah increased Dubai’s shoreline by 100 percent after work started on it in 2001.

It features resort hotels, homes, luxury shopping and entertainment.

Though the entire island officially opened Thursday, parts of it already opened weeks ago -- including the Atlantis, The Palm, a sister to the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas.

The Atlantis played host to the opening celebration Thursday night.

Stars including Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan, Robert De Niro, Gerard Butler, Janet Jackson, Wesley Snipes, Chris Tucker, Lindsay Lohan, Charlize Theron, Mary-Kate Olsen, Mischa Barton and the Duchess of York were in attendance.

Pop star Kylie Minogue performed at the party.

Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra started what was billed as the world’s largest-ever fireworks display (<<< Beijing Olympics 2008 liwat nih), with more than 100,000 pyrotechnic devices.

$20 million star-smacked extravaganza, this was just becuase when Crude Oil touched $147 a barrel UAE and other oil producing nations were raking in the money like gold. In coming few months they are going to feel the pinch. Housing is good but it should be affordable and sustainable.
