Hundreds of TikTok users are freaking out after discovering a “creepy” location
they previously knew nothing about.
The online “conspiracy” began
with a user named Alysia Thomas.
In a video from April, Thomas uses
Snapchat’s Snapmap feature to explore
the globe, before zooming in on Dubai.
The TikToker was shocked to find that,
just off the city’s coast, there’s a group
of islands shaped exactly like a world map.
Of course, there’s a perfectly good explanation for her “creepy” findings.
The World Islands, constructed starting
in 2003, is a collection of more than
300 private luxury islands.
Each island is totally artificial and
can sell for anywhere between
$7 million and $1.8 billion
