Dubai In Bloom

Three years ago I spent Valentine’s weekend in Dubai with one of my best friends. She used to live in the United Arab Emirates and her family still resides there. I was on a solo trip in London the day before I met her in Dubai and the first place she took me to was the Miracle Garden. What better way to cap off a soul-searching trip than going to a place called Miracle Garden and be surrounded by 100 million flowers?

The Dubai Miracle Garden is a world-class tourist attraction. During my February visit, the theme was clearly Valentine’s Day. I literally felt like I walked in the Queen of Heart’s palace. The garden is truly innovative and creative. I did not expect to see this paradise in the middle of a desert!
