Dubai Miracle Garden
In Dubai, it seems that there is no such thing as impossible, so why not create a garden in the desert. And I’m not talking about just any garden, but the largest in the world. The Dubai Garden of Miracles is an area of 72,000 square meters, 150 million flowers, more than 60 different species and 100 million plants.
Due to the climatic conditions, this garden is only open in winter, between November and February. Opening and closing dates are variable (only due to weather conditions), so always check if it will be open during your trip.
It was first opened on February 14, 2013 to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but it has been so popular that it has been renovated and can now be visited every year. Each season, the park surprises again with new and unique floral creations.
To see: is the Emirates Airbus A380, which was built in full scale. The aircraft is composed of 500,000 flowers. No less than 200 people worked on it. Since 2016, it has been listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest floral creation.

How to get to the Dubai Miracle Garden?
There is no direct subway to get there, but in the season when the garden is open, there is a special itinerary. Bus 105 goes directly from the Mall of the Emirates subway to the Miracle Garden in 25 minutes. The cost of the single trip is 5 AED ($1.5). The bus has a stop right outside the subway.
Another option is to take a cab from the Mall of the Emirates to the Miracle Garden. The cost is about $10 and up to 7 people can travel.
