It's your last chance to visit these outdoor attractions in Dubai

The city’s fun alfresco spots close for summer…

Like it or not, Dubai is slowly getting warmer, and before you know it, it’s summer again. While some of the top attractions in Dubai remain open year-round, the outdoor ones will shut their doors and will only re-open once the peak of summer has passed – usually around September or October.

So, if you’ve been planning that outdoor attraction visit and haven’t yet gotten around to it, this is your last call.

Dubai Miracle Garden

Closes on: April 30, 2024

Dubai’s most floral space closes its doors over the summer for two reasons: the boiling temperatures and the second is planning and prepping for the next season. If it’s been a couple of years since you’ve visited, the Smurf’s Village has been expanded, and floral tunnels and lighting attractions have been added. Once the summer has passed and the cooler weather has once again settled onto the city, the gates will reopen at Dubai Miracle Garden – usually at the start of the last quarter of the year. If you’re heading online to book tickets, currently the last date you can book is April 30.

Dubai Miracle Garden, Al Barsha South 3, Dubailand, open daily 9am to 9pm (and 9am to 11pm on weekends), Dhs95 for adults, Dhs80 for children under 12, and under 3s free. Tel: (04) 422 8902. dubaimiraclegarden.com
