Most of the tourists and travelers create a schedule and list of attractions that they want to visit. Although is it not bad, it might also getting in the way of some fun when traveling. Be sure to squeeze in some extra time on visiting unknown places that are not on your list. This would give you the time to explore a destination in your own terms.

Whenever we see a stunning view, we scramble to take a photo or video of it, capturing its beauty eternally. But do not spend all the time taking photos.

Your taste buds might have been quite used to the usual dishes in your native country. When you are in a trip, it will give an opportunity to have a taste of a different cuisine. Some travelers prefer to forego this adventure due to myths of getting bad stomach ache, but they are missing an adventure of a lifetime. Try the local cuisine and see delicious the dishes are in other places.

 

  • Make friends with a local

Mingle with the locals and know their way of life. This will give you a real perspective on how other people are living their lives in other parts of the world.

THE BEAUTY OF MIRACLE AND BUTTERFLY GARDENS

Published by:

Millions and millions of flowers in the desert. Colorful, diverse, vivid, bright. It sounds like a miracle? No wonder the largest natural flowers garden in the world in Dubai got its name the Miracle Garden. Yet another project that out dares natural conditions, this garden also has the record in Guinness Book of Records for its longest wall of flowers. Blooming flowers, which number is estimated to 45 million, are made into designs, shapes and structures, horizontal and vertical, varying from swans, abstract flower designs to real-size version of the Emirates A380 Flight, being the world’s largest floral installation.

Its undoubted attractiveness for visitors is proved by the fact that it had around 2 million visits just in the first month after opening in 2013. As it was made to be the renewable, it offers new design solutions every season, and keeps being one of the favorite tourist outdoor location.

 

But, if that was not miraculous enough, imagine the Butterfly garden. Located just next to the Miracle Garden, it is covering 1800 square meters and it is the biggest covered butterfly garden in the word. It includes butterfly museum and butterfly flower park, consisting of nine climate-controlled domes – each being perfect environment for 24 different variety of butterflies from all over the world, all together containing around 15000 butterflies. The temperature is adjusted to 24C to be more suitable for the visitors, although butterflies like to live on 28C.

 

Butterfly garden was a solution for a whole year around tourist attraction, as Miracle Garden can not be opened during summer. Now there is nature with plants and flowers indoors. The most impressive design in this part of the park is the collage made of hundreds of different butterflies representing the head of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai.

 

Butterfly park seems to offer unique experience to its visitors, as the butterflies are flying all over the domes and people are allowed to touch them and interact with them, but they are instructed how not to hurt them. But they are not just lovely and colorful, their life cycle and metamorphosis is stunning and visitors can actually witness it in the garden. The best impression of butterfly presence is described by visitors, who didn’t notice any butterflies in the first place, but then “pair whooshed past our head. Then, suddenly, they are everywhere, floating down from hanging trays of fruit and nectar, playfully chasing each other around the domes and dancing around the structure’s ceiling”

 

Being such a success, the Miracle and Butterfly gardens show the need for natural theme parks, so the plan for the future is to expand the existing and make different types of gardens such as a bird garden, and a koi fish garden.
