Being part of the Middle East, the hot climate has never been a hindrance for Dubai to move forward and develop itself into something great. Indeed, a positive example to all other Middle Eastern countries.
Inspite of having a very hot weather that even reaches 52 degrees celsius and surrounded by desert sands, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum still manages to transform and make Dubai as one of the most visited places in the world.
Located in the district of Dubailand - entertainment complex, this flower garden was available to the public in February 2013.
Miracle Garden received a Certificate of Excellence this 2016 from tripadvisor, also, the garden was awarded the Moselle Award for New Garden Experiences of the year by the Garden Tourism Award 2015 and has as well set a Guinness World Record in March 2013 as the largest vertical garden.
What's more interesting is that, the flowers are maintained by re-using of waste water through drip irrigation method with an average amount of 757,082 litres of water per day. (wikipedia.org)
