10. Antarctic Island – The World, Dubai
Yep, you read right, the Antarctic…in Dubai. Not really, though! ‘Antarctic’ here refers to one of the 300 artificially made islands off the coast of Dubai. The archipelago known as The World is an architectural feat, with the islands designed
to mirror the shape of the world map. This island was gifted to former Formula 1 racer Michael Schumacher by Dubai’s crown prince Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, as a retirement present. Antarctic Island is worth a whopping $7 million
and can only be reached via boat or helicopter. After the racing legend’s unfortunate skiing accident in December 2013, the fate of the island remains unknown.
