Dubai Miracle Garden
I was really looking forward to visit Dubai's Miracle Garden. This attraction, which has been open for 10 years, deservedly received its name, as if we had fallen into a fairytale world full of flowers.
There is an amazing amount of more than 150 million flowers here in this 72,000 square meter area, where you can, among other things, have an adventure in the Smurfs' village, see the Emirates A380 aircraft covered in flowers, or take a photo with a huge bush in the shape of a cat.
The garden is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. until April 30, after which it will be closed due to the high summer heat until the weather cools down.
The entrance fee is 55 AED, which corresponds to approximately 15 euros, 40 AED for children up to 12 years old, and free for children under 3 years old.
I think the most wonderful sight in the garden is the Smurfs' village with the houses shaped like life-size mushrooms,all the smurfs around the house - and of course Gargamel and Azrael the cat, hiding in the bushes.
Here you can relive your childhood, the adults - including me - took pictures and looked around just as enthusiastically as the children.
This part of the park opened for its tenth anniversary, so we went at the right time.
The other exciting attraction is the A380 Emirates plane covered in flowers, unfortunately it is difficult to convey this in a picture, but imagine what a job it must have been to cover this huge plane with flowers.
My third favorite was the elephant fountain, in which the elephants were very lifelike. Beautiful! And here there are many benches where we can sit down and rest if we are tired of walking around.
I originally planned to spend a whole day here, but now I say that approx. 2-3 hours is more than enough to see the garden.
There is also a bush in the shape of a giant cat - a must for cat fans, and there are also penguin and horse bushes, and even an incredibly big and cute teddy bear!
I didn't include so many pictures in the previous blog posts, but here I'm trying to show how big these things are, and there were so many cute things to see anyway.
There is also an evening show on the stage next to the entrance, which is supposed to present the story of Aladdin, I think you can skip it, because as sensational as the garden is, this show is just as crappy. Although the stage, the castle covered with flowers and the huge genie on stage are awesome , it is a pity that the quality of the performance does not match this.
And if we wanted to check the time, we could see it on an amazing Smurfs clock decorated with huge flowers!
The Miracle Garden is relatively close to the Mall of the Emirates, we connected the two programs , but we were so busy looking around in the mall it almost got dark,and we arrived to the garden pretty late - so maybe it is more appropriate to start with the garden.
By the way, the Mall of Emirates is a huge shopping center with an incredible amount of shops, and there is also an indoor ski slope here, which alone makes it worth to visit.
This place has been on my bucket list for a long time, I'm glad I could see it finally. The Miracle Garden is currently closed due to the high heat, and will reopen in October.
I hope you liked the pictures and made you want to visit the park!
