These 5-Star Concrete Skeletons Were Abandoned. Why? The Reason Will Shock You

Over the stark Egyptian Senai, Penninsula stands huge, bare cement skeletons of 5-star hotels and Cinemas. Wealthy man built here dreams of luxury and awe. Then why is it so that they sit here alone, attracting no tourists but sand storms.

The names given to these projects when they started two decades back. "Sindbad", "Sultan's Palace" and "Magic Life Imperial".  At that time, Egypt had to be the centre of tourist attraction, and  people did wealthy investments . But then why did dreams end up so abruptly?

There are are varied reasons for it. Some suffered from the bad investment; some were the victims of the poor state subsidized loans, and the remaining were at fault because of diminished tourists. Tourists stopped visiting Egypt due to the rise in terrorist attacks in the country.

Haubitz + Zoche, are German photographers who visited the Egyptian Senai Penninsula and came across these unintentional concrete monuments. These Photographs remind us of the lost dreams and plans. It is just ruins now. Have a look at these. And, bury yourself in the vivid imagination, only if they were real.

It is unusual how we explore places on the earth, destroy most of the natural landscape and setting and then somehow nature, situations find a way to come back to us. If this story made you wonder, share with your friends.
