Dubai's Miracle Oasis in the Desert

Dubai is known as a glamorous city of skyscrapers in the Arabian desert. The idea of it also having the world’s largest natural flower garden doesn’t naturally spring to mind. Defying the odds, this immaculate oasis of flowers and color opened its gates in February 2013 and the Dubai Miracle Gardens have been flourishing ever since.
