Dubai is known for its extravagance, beauty, and the many world records it holds. The Dubai Miracle Garden encompasses all of the above. It is out the way and no where near the main attractions, but is well worth the visit to this amazing garden in the desert, even if just to sit on a teak garden bench and admire the views.
The Miracle Garden has 45 million colorful flowers blooming. To see these beautiful flowers a car is necessary. We took a taxi. All the drivers know exactly where the garden is. There is also no need to worry how you are going to get back to your hotel because there is a taxi line. If you are driving yourself, just keep in mind there are no actual addresses in Dubai, only street names. The Garden is located on Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road.
Entrance fee into the Miracle Garden is 30 AED. The garden also holds a world record for having the longest wall of flowers. It is truly a site to see. Walking around you can smell how amazing the flowers are. There are so many different areas to enjoy. The flowers are watered through a drip irrigation system that comes from recycled waste water. They are only in the first phase of development with a lot more amazing features to come.
As we walked around I spotted an Eiffel Tower and Burj Khalifa replicas. There were also some beautiful peacocks, houses, heart shaped archways, and so much more. This was flowers on another level. Beautiful beds of flowers were also found at every turn. If a break was needed, sit down and enjoy the beauty. It is such a picturesque place.
We got a little hungry while there. There is a food court area that is canopied by flowers. There are tons of chairs and tables. There are a handful of kiosks to get food from. We grabbed some pizza from one of them before continuing to walk around some more. I didn’t get the opportunity to see every single detail and area because we were on a time constraint, but it was very enjoyable.
If the opportunity presents itself it is certainly a place to see. The garden is an amazing site especially when you remember that you are really in the desert. See more of the garden below.
