Things To Do In Dubai: Visit The Dubai Miracle Garden

February 2, 2014
Dubai Miracle Garden

Having lived in the desert for almost 7 years now, I usually get excited whenever I have the chance to visit a garden during my travels. I love being surrounded by greeneries and flowers, it’s a different sight to see specially if your eyes are so used to seeing high-rise buildings like the ones that we have here in Dubai. So when I heard about Dubai’s attempt to create the world’s biggest flower garden I got really curious about it. A flower garden in the middle of the desert? How can it be? Nothing is impossible here in Dubai so I guess I just have to see it myself.

Dubai Miracle Garden is located in Dubailand near Arabian Ranches. We used my phone’s GPS to go there and it was quite easy. Free parking is available and abundant. We arrived at the garden at around 2pm, paid the entrance fee of AED20 per person and enjoyed this colorful place.

Hundreds of flowers were on display in different designs, the landscaping was very creative. The garden was well-maintained with facilities such as prayer rooms, toilets, food kiosks and professional photographers. I didn’t see anyone having a picnic though, I guess it’s not allowed to probably maintain the cleanliness. They do have a shaded area though to refresh yourselves with some light snacks – chips, popcorn, sandwiches and gelatos to name a few. The pricing of the food was horrendously expensive though, 5 dirhams for a bottle of water which you can buy for only a dirham outside. Lol.

I was told that the design of the garden changes every season so you wouldn’t be seeing the same ones whenever you visit the place – provided that you’ve given them enough time to change it from your first visit. 🙂

The garden is open from 9am to 9pm on weekdays and 9am to 11pm on weekends. They offer free admission for kids below 3 years.

It would be nice if they can add facilities such as picnic tables or bicycle rentals as the place would be a good destination to go to for families during the weekends.

Going there on a taxi is quite risky as I didn’t see any taxi queue while there. Having your own transportation may be the best option for now to go there.
