Dubai Miracle Garden
Sight Address : Dubai Miracle Garden is located in Dubailand near the Arabian Ranches. Edit
Opened on Valentine’s Day, Dubai Miracle Garden contains over 45 million flowers over a 72,000 sq metre site and, as well as traditional flowerbeds, it features topiary-style displays with blooms fashioned into the shapes of hearts, stars, igloos, pyramids and so on. Intended as a tourist attraction which should attract one million visitors a year once fully established, the site was developed by the landscaping company Akar. Floral displays will change each season so that repeat visitors will have a new experience each time. developers of the garden have said that it has been possible to develop this oasis in the desert “through judicious re-use of waste water, through drip irrigation.” While Britain is still to emerge from the ongoing cold snap, winter in Dubai provides the optimum growth period for flowers and the garden will close at the peak of summer.

How to ReachEdit
Taxi : Taxi is also easily available here, Most visitors will opt for public taxis from the airport, which are readily available just outside arrivals, which use the meter and start at AED 25. If you can’t find one otherwise, you can attempt to call a taxi at 04-2080808
Bus : The Government of Dubai operates a network of buses linking Dubai city with the capitals of the other six emirates of the UAE. The buses run under the name Emirates Express and operate from various bus terminals in Dubai. Buses operate every 40 minutes from 6.20am from both Dubai’s Al Ghubaibah bus station and Abu Dhabi’s main bus station. The two-hour journey cost AED 25. Frequent buses run between Dubai and Sharjah. There are several different routes and buses depart from various bus stations in Dubai including Al Karama, Gold Souq, Baniyas Square, Jebel Ali and Al Ittihad Square. Fares are at Dh7 .
Train : Dubai Metro is composed of at-grade elevated Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3 (T1, T2 and T3, respectively) underground stations (U) and underground transfer station types (UT). Type 1 is the regular at-grade concourse station, Type 2 is a regular elevated concourse station, and Type 3 is an elevated special track station with an extra track to hold a non operational train. Underground transfer stations will be accommodating both the Red and Green lines for easy transfers. Besides these differences, there are four themes used in the interiors of the stations: earth, water, fire and air. Earth stations have a tan-brown colour effects; water has blue-white colour effects; fire has orange-red colour effects; and the air has green colour effects. Single tickets range from Dh2-8.50, or double that for use of the “Gold” first class carriage. Train run every 3-5 minutes from 5:50 AM to Midnight every day except Thursday and Friday, when services are extended to 5:50 AM to 1 AM and limited to 1 PM to Midnight, respectively. All stations are air-conditioned and there’s a large network of feeder buses.
Air : Dubai International Airport (DXB), which is located about 2.5 miles southeast of Dubai, links the emirate to over 200 world destinations by 100 airlines operating about 5,600 flights every week. Terminal 1 of Dubai International Airport serves as a base for international flights while Terminal 3 exclusively caters for Emirates. Terminal 2 on the other hand, is mainly used by smaller airlines operating to Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. India can avail flight services from metropolitan cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad and Bangalore. Besides Emirates, Jet Airways, Air India, Thai Airways and Indian Airlines are some of the major airlines serving travellers flying to Dubai from India. Most visitors will opt for public taxis from the airport, which are readily available just outside arrivals, which use the meter and start at Dhs 25. Taxis are on the left when you come out of terminal 1.

Others : By Boat : An easier way of crossing the Dubai Creek is by abra, essentially a small ferry. Abra stations are located along the Creek on both the Bur Dubai and Deira sides, and the system of filling the boats is remarkably efficient. The cross-river trip costs 1 Dirham (AED 1) per passenger, payable to the driver after the boat has left the station, and affords a very picturesque view of the city (not to be missed). Abras set off very regularly, and the service is available round-the-clock.
Waterbus : The Waterbus is another option for tourists who want to go by boat but avoid the abra crowd (or the heat). It is a part of Dubai’s public transport system, so again a Red ticket, or any Nol card is required for the journey. Can be purchased at the waterbus station. The waterbus also features a ‘tourist route’ round trip – while it is convenient, it can get quite expensive (Dh50 for an adult, Dh25 for a child).
By Car : There are a countless number of Rent-A-Cars that will provide a mode of transportation for very cheap rates and very little paperwork. An International Driving Permit is not necessarily required, but hire companies may not rent a car without one. Some agencies will hire out cars complete with drivers. Visitors taking advantage of this option will need to make certain that their driver knows his way around as many do not.
