I hope you’re having a lovely week. Last weekend was probably one of the most relaxing weekends I’ve had and I loved it. I first visited the Dubai Miracle Garden two years ago as I was covering it in a feature for Good Taste magazine, a magazine I previously worked for. However, every year it supposedly gets bigger and better – it really has improved!
On Saturday, I dragged my boyfriend and mum to the flower-filled garden. This is a very picture-heavy post, but I will be sharing information and my thoughts throughout!
If you’re looking to go on a quiet and peaceful day do not go on the weekend. It was extremely busy and if you’re hoping to take pretty pictures, prepare to have someone’s head or back in 90% of them.
However, the Miracle Garden is truly stunning. There are beautiful, quirky details wherever you look and there is so much greenery surrounding you – something we lack a little in Dubai. So, if you do want to escape concrete and skyscrapers, you’ll love spending a few hours here.
Dubai Miracle Garden highlights
I absolutely loved the peacocks, flower houses (I’m desperate to move into one) and floral hearts everywhere. I also loved all of the vibrant flowers they’ve used – according to the website, there are approximately 100 million flowers in total, which is a lot of flowers.
Being in the Miracle Garden feels a little like being in Disney Land (replace the rides with flowers). It’s great for visiting on your own, as a family (I can’t imagine how magical children must find the garden if I found it so enchanting!) or with friends/your partner. It’s an unusual attraction for the region, where you’re often faced with flashing lights, noise and buildings – I can deal with this most of the time, but sometimes it’s lovely to be surrounded by nature and pretty natural sights.
What else you’ll find at Dubai Miracle Garden
There are SO many places to eat in the gardens, so if you’re coming with little ones don’t worry they won’t go hungry! I’d highly recommend some of the freshly-roasted corn on the cob. It’s natural, delicious and super-sweet. There are also multiple places to buy fresh fruit and fruit juices. There are covered eating areas, which are perfect for the warmer months (look up at the umbrella canopy!) and benches everywhere.
You can also visit the Butterly Garden, I chose not to but if you’re a big fan of pretty butterflies be sure to check it out.
How to get to Dubai Miracle Garden & entry price
Dubai Miracle Garden is located near Dubai Motor City, you can find a map on the website here. Entry costs Dhs30 per person, with kids under 3 entering for free! I don’t think that’s a bad price at all for what you get to see and the amount of time that you can end up spending in there. Fellow bloggers and Instagram-addicts, you’ll also manage to get tonnes of gorgeous photos to fill your feeds with!
I hope you found this post useful, let me know if you’d like to find anything else out and I’ll try my best to give you my feedback.
If you do decide to visit Dubai Miracle Garden now, enjoy :).
