There are some big plans underway in Subiya, Kuwait in Madinat al-Hareer, the City of Silk. Not only are they planning to erect the world's tallest tower, stealing the crown from Dubai, but they're also planning on creating a hugely ambitious rail network that would link the Middle East with China.
The railway will connect places such as Kuwait, Damascus, Baghdad and Iran with cities in China and in between, with the hub starting in Subiya. The complex around the tower will also include all sorts of recreation and business attractions, including a wildlife sanctuary. It's all seems kind of hodgepodge, but when it's all complete after a $132 billion bill, I'm sure it'll be more than impressive.
