‘When China sneezes, the world catches a cold’ – the unfolding of recent events has proven that true; but pockets of opportunities still exist if you know where to look. Text by Jan Yong 2016 started on panic mode with a Chinese stock market crash followed by falls in global stock markets, wiping off an estimated USD2.6 trillion from global markets in a matter of four days. Such is China’s impact on world markets that whatever it does is being watched closely and analysed to death. After all, China has been the engine of the world’s growth for the last 10 years. A slowing economy in China means less money for everyone, hence less consumption especially high end and big ticket items including real estate. An analyst has even pointed out the crash could spell the end of a huge property-based debt-fuelled boom in China. That aside, at the time of writing, the markets have stabilised slightly after China strengthened its currency, alleviating fears of further Yuan devaluations. A Yuan devaluation would trigger competitive devaluations among its trading partners; it is a good and bad thing. Good for China’s exports which will be more competitive but bad for its asset values. It may trigger more outflows of money from China. Its trading partners would similarly embark on competitive devaluations to compete with China, hence lower asset values across the board all over the region.

杜拜奢华漂浮别墅赏海底 首栋别墅样板房完工!

全球首见的漂浮式海景别墅“漂浮的海马”(Floating Seahorse),其第一栋别墅样板房最近已完工,漂浮于杜拜世界岛海中!
由杜拜知名的发展商Kleindienst Group 所打造的“漂浮的海马”共分为三层,海面上两层、海面下一层,入住者可以享受到水下及陆上的双重美景。
“漂浮的海马”所提供的不仅是五星级酒店的豪华设施,别墅的客厅和餐厅都设有玻璃门,而别墅外的甲板部分由渔网覆盖,可供住户一窥底下的大海。别墅的底层更有一间海底卧室,让住户仿佛置身大海之中;别墅的顶层则有间酒吧和浴缸,供人消遣作乐。这类别墅连同周围300座人造岛屿,是由杜拜酋长穆罕默德所构思。
这个被称为“欧洲之心”的发展计划的顾客群主要是游客和非常富有的人士。去年在杜拜国际游艇展首度曝光,独特的设计吸引超过60张订单,其第一期和第二期更在短短8个月内售罄,目前正推出第三期。所有的度假屋都和中心的人造岛屿连结,屋主也完全不用担心与世隔绝,不但有网路和电视,更提供管家服务。
但这些别墅可不便宜,每栋的售价是320万美元(约1313万4560令吉)。而除了别墅,“欧洲之心”也计划建设设有气温调节功能的酒店和购物商场。
