One of the many reasons I love social media is the power to explore and learn more about any given place or thing. I was directed towards the Dubai Miracle Gardens via a recommendation from a fellow Instagrammer and vowed to visit before I left. With one free day remaining, we didn’t let a tiny dust storm hinder us from checking it out.
This colorful trail of umbrellas is what initially caught my eye and also happened to make the perfect place to take an interlude from the sun. The temperature over the past few weeks had actually been quite temperate but as luck might have it, it was dusty and muggy the day we were destined to go. Luckily my years spent living in south Florida prepared me well for days like these.
Just to get an idea of the size of the Dubai Miracle Gardens, the grounds feature over 45 million blooming flowers at any given time. As of 2013, it has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records for having the tallest vertical garden in the world.
Each bend of the path offers something more wild and creative. 45 different species of flowers coat large structures shaped as peacocks and windmills, they billow off faux homes lining a path that mimics the streets in a neighborhood of houses and create a mesmerizing field of patterns. There is literally something incredible to gawk at in every direction you look.
I loved the imagination that went into creating this exhibit. I thought the concentric hearts had won me over until I saw this beautiful display of artistic landscaping.
Should you ever get the opportunity to play tourist in Dubai one day, the magical gardens are certainly a spectacular sight to see.
