I’m going to start by saying that if you’re the type of girl that loves pink stuff, glitter, unicorns and Instagram pics, this is the place for you. YES, you NEED to visit this garden because it’s crucial to your Instagram account. LOL just kidding but seriously this place is Instagram gold. Ok so you’re not that aforementioned girl, should you go? YES. The garden is absolutely beautiful and worth the visit anddddd if you get bored and you’re not the type to be obsessed with flowers and girly things you can go to their café and have a light lunch or even check out the butterfly garden. I’d put this on the list of places worth visiting on your trip to Dubai. The coolest thing about visiting this place is that you can come in the morning or late afternoon and plan another activity all in the same day.
Your Visit to the Garden:
Wake up early in the morning, throw on your springiest outfit and head over to the Dubai Miracle Garden. Before exploring the garden head over to the café for some yummy snacks and coffee. Trust me you will need the coffee in order to form the stamina to explore this place.
We originally planned to spend an hour here but once we arrived, we were enchanted by the magic of the place. After you finish taking a million pictures in the garden head to the butterfly garden. There you’ll find over 15,000 butterfly species making this one of the largest Butterfly collections in the world. Nothing can make you feel like you’re in a fairytale more than having thousands of butterflies flutter around you.
Get there early or late in the afternoon!!!!! I can’t stress this enough. This place is a major attraction, and not only does it get packed with tourists, but it also gets really really hot (Hello, it’s the desert)
Plan to spend a couple of hours here, don’t think this is a pop in and pop out scenario, once you get there it’s like little magical elves put a spell on you and before you know it you’re three hours in.
Plan your visit around these times of year. Due to the weather the garden isn’t open all year round it closes after May and reopens in the fall.
Buy your ticket at the garden they have the best rates. You can call to double check prices but for us the tickets were $26 at the box office and it was by far the best price based off my research.
Wear/ Bring a hat and sunglasses. If you don’t want to come out squinting in all your pictures take this advice.
