The new attraction is one of the world’s unique theme gardens and also the first of its kind in the UAE.

He said Dubai is now focusing on positioning itself as a leading destination within the entertainment and leisure sectors aiming to attract the widest audience of tourists, covering all age groups, nationalities and activities.

“With unique projects like Dubai Garden Glow, we aim to offer an unforgettable experience for both children and adults using the latest technology for thrills and safety,” he added.

Dubai Garden Glow which will remain open until April 2016, is a unique edutainment concept which has been brought to life, using cutting-edge technology and some of the best artistic talent from different corners of the world.

Pegged to be a family-focused themed destination of its kind, Dubai Glow Garden at Zaabeel, it offers two diverse experiences ‘Art by day and Glow by night’.

The Dubai Garden Glow project has been inspired by wonders across the globe and has created several experiences that will take you from the wildebeest migration of Masai Mara to the tulips of Netherlands.

This themed destination will also feature several live performances by international, regional and local artists and acrobats. Some live musical performances have been conceptualised to showcase the UAE culture to the world. The younger children will have a dedicated area where they can enjoy ‘learning with fun’. The venue will also include several games and fun activities to keep them engaged.

Furthermore, there will also be a large food street that will offer delicacies from around the world.

The Porcelain Grand Shaikh Zayed Mosque made up of 90,000 porcelain cups, plates and spoons;

The Burj Khalifa recreated with 330,000 small medicine bottles filled with coloured water and stands over 12 meters (36’) tall.
