DUBAI – A garden in full bloom in the middle of the Dubai desert? It’s not science fiction or a leaf off Alice in Wonderland.
The Dubai Miracle Garden is as real as it gets and holds the record for the world’s largest natural flower garden sprawling over 72,000 square metres in Dubailand.
The garden was launched on Valentine’s Day in 2013 and has since been a picture-perfect part of Dubai’s tourism lineup when it is open for six months each year.
Each year, from mid-November to mid-May, the Miracle Garden promises a full bloom of exciting attractions and activities.
The garden is home to more than 150 million flowers and 250 million plants that form a myriad of shapes.
Other creatures call it home, too. Gigantic, flowery creatures, to be exact. Expat Media visited the Miracle Garden and stumbled on these surprises:
What else can you see the world’s largest natural flower garden?
Some breathtaking landscaping, including the largest floral sculpture forming the shape of an Airbus A380. It also has the tallest topiary sculpture in the form of an 18-metre tall Disney character that is made up of almost 100,000 plants and flowers.
Before you end your tour, make sure to climb up the viewing deck and get a sweeping, bird’s eye view of the outdoor display. JMYDS/Expat Media
