The world’s largest nat­u­ral flower gar­den, the Dubai Mir­a­cle Gar­den cov­ers more than 72,000 square me­tres of land and fea­tures about 50 mil­lion blooms in its amaz­ing dis­plays. Opened in 2013, the gar­den now at­tracts up to 1.5 mil­lion vis­i­tors a year be­tween Oc­to­ber and April (the cooler months of the year in Dubai).

And things don’t stand still for long in this dy­namic gar­den – the flo­ral struc­tures are changed ev­ery sea­son to en­sure re­peat vis­i­tors get a whole new ex­pe­ri­ence each time they re­turn. Among the gar­den’s most pop­u­lar fea­tures are its well-known car­toon char­ac­ters and a se­lec­tion of huge 3D an­i­mals in­clud­ing pea­cocks, par­rots, kan­ga­roos, swans and but­ter­flies.

7 Flam­boy­ant ex­pres­sion is the theme of this gar­den – check out this flo­ral face in­stal­la­tion, sur­rounded by cas­cades of blooms.

6 Gi­ant but­ter­flies rest on flo­ral wind­mills. Why not?
