Paradise Pot Hanging Botanical Garden

Al ain paradise garden

12 NOV, 2013 AL AIN, UAE – United Arab Emirates is famous for its man-made and most exotic things such as Man-made islands, tallest building in the world, longest driver-less metro train, largest airport in the world, first seven star hotel in the world and many more to count.

Similarly the largest Zoo in the region, largest hanging botanical garden, most green country in the gulf and many other are in the adding. Since 2011 i was willing to visit one of the monument that has opened for public that was the Al Ain Paradise Gardens. It is probably the Al Ain’s most famous attraction, attracting over 10,000 visitors in one day when it reopened in February 2012 after being closed for months for refurbishment. On average,  about 1,000-1500 people visit each day when it’s open.

Opening times – when it is open!: 9am to 9pm, but I once visited the Gardens during the week and they were closed until 2pm. Entry is free. You can take drinks into the gardens, but you can’t take food.

Fridays is for families only. Borrow some children for the day if necessary: the gardens are a must see! :)

You should see red, white and blue spheres in the middle of the roundabout, as well as a small pagoda.

You have just driven southwards, but this photo is taken from the other side of the roundabout, looking back northwards.

As you go across this roundabout, still heading south, turn right after 100 meters where you see this sign…

Turn right at the next little roundabout, then turn into the car park next to the entrance to the gardens.

The Al Ain Paradise Gardens not a big place, but I think it’s beautiful.

This is what the entrance to the Al Ain Paradise Gardens looked like in the summer of 2010…
