The Dubai Miracle Garden

Dubai Miracle Garden review

One of the highlights on our recent trip to Dubai was a visit to the Dubai Miracle Garden. The Dubai Miracle Garden is a beautiful garden filled with colourful flowers (150 million of them!) forming arches, patterns, and all sorts of shapes. Among many other displays, you can currently see a Disney floral character display, a life-size Emirates A380 plane, a 12 metre high teddy bear and a huge variety of different creatures brought to life through the medium of flowers.

The gardens are arranged in a circle. Shops and restaurants are situated around the outside, with decorated walkways leading towards the lake in the middle. There are plenty of focal points, like a small castle which housed the prettiest Starbucks I've ever seen!

There are also lots of places to sit around the gardens in the shade and soak up the atmosphere, we all loved these huge swinging seats where you can lie comfortably! There are also lots of hammocks and chairs and tables to sit and enjoy a drink or snack.

If you enjoy photography you are spoiled for choice when it comes to backdrops, it's definitely a very instagrammable spot!

It was a perfect family outing - lots to see to keep the children interested, and plenty of places to sit and rest when it got a bit too hot and tiring.

We really enjoyed our visit here and I'd definitely recommend going if you are in the area! Here are some of my favourite photos:

Visitor tips:

Dubai Miracle Garden is closed over the summer months for renovation so check dates on the website here - Dubai Miracle Garden. It will be open from mid-November to mid-May.

We travelled from our hotel in central Dubai by Uber and returned by local taxi, with the local taxi price working out slightly cheaper. There were plenty of taxis waiting outside at the exit. We purchased our entry tickets when we arrived and there was no queue. At the time of our visit the entry price was 50AED for an adult and 40AED for a child - about £37 at the current exchange rate for our family of two adults and two children.

You can spend as long as you like in the gardens, our visit lasted about 2 hours but would have been longer if we'd stopped for something to eat or drink. Although it can be hot in the sun, there are plenty of shady areas to sit and rest. There are also plenty of shops selling refreshments, covering a variety of different cuisines, and places to sit and eat your own snacks.
