Discover Dubai – The Dubai Miracle Garden

If you haven’t planned your weekend yet, this is the best time to get outside and appreciate the beauty of nature. Now, that the spring season in Dubai brings fabulous weather and a wealth of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoor experience why not visit the region’s newest tourist attraction – Dubai Miracle Garden.

Right after seeing the place in the newspaper I convinced hubby that we should go to the much talked about place in FB..hahaha. Most of my friends kasi are posting pictures na and I always admire the paradise in the city.

Who would have thought that this dry desert land can create a huge and colorful paradise. The park was launched on Valentine’s Day 2013 and took 60 days and 400 people to create the 721,000 square foot garden. According to research the estimated cost of the project is around $11 miliion. No wonder Dubai are hoping to be recognized by Guiness World Records.

Embellished with flowers on the ground and hanging from heart-shaped arches,the garden contains more than 45 million flowers and is really spectacular inside.The park features about 30 different varieties of blooms, including petunias, geraniums and marigolds.

Walking around the garden we were impressed with the colourful archways in the shape of hearts, archways covering in spilling hanging baskets in every hue, structures in the shape of birds, and huge striped pyramids.

Though we came late we still enjoyed the view. We are expecting for a lesser tourist because it’s weekday but the park was still busy and crowded.
I suggest to bring sweater or jacket to keep you warm. But I am warning you to prepare yourself with all the noise of the whistle. The security are doing a great job of protecting the flowers and the beauty of the garden.
Admission to the park is aed 20 for adults. Kids under 3 years old can get in for free.
Open daily from 9am – 9pm from October until the end of May.
