Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought it fitting to reflect on my stroll through Dubai’s Miracle Gardens – aptly named so, with bright colourful flowers and plants lively and blooming in the middle of the hot Arabian desert.
Situated a 15 minute drive into the desert from Downtown Dubai, the Miracle Gardens offers Dubai’s own version of a botanical garden, with thousands of pot plants placed in green wire nets constructed in the shape of various things, most notably the many heart shapes.
Entry is AED30 per adult and the gardens are open until 9pm or 11pm on weekends (which are Fridays and Saturdays here).
My favourite by far were the flower ladies – photos below (I’m not sure how else to describe them!).
Wandering through the vast grounds, I saw flower houses, flower bikes, and a ‘world garden’ featuring the world’s icons, and cute Arabian garden rest areas with sunken bean bags and sofas.
I was lucky to visit during the anniversary of the opening of the Dubai Miracle Gardens so I saw an exhibit in celebration of this special time.
The exit was so cute!
Would I recommend seeing the Dubai Miracle Gardens? For visitors and first timers, yes. 3 days is usually recommended in Dubai, so if you’re here for any longer, I’d definitely recommend seeing it. It’s more of a one-time attraction though, and as much as I love being surrounded by the vibrant colours in a desert city, if I visit next time, it would be to check out the gardens by night.
