Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Had a few hours before heading to the airport and decided to visit the Miracle Gardens. I was glad I made the effort to visit this place. Beautiful flowers and sculptures covered in flowers. Amazing place especially in a desert area.
    If you are ever in Dubai and have an hour or 2, this is a worthwhile visit especially if you like flowers.

    The place is beautiful and the experience is fun.. Tickets are very expensive.. If there were more games, i will give them 5 stars .. The place is kind of crowded.. Bring cash with you because there is a cafe inside the snow

    Its a huge mall (not the size of Dubai Mall). Top floors are filled with top end brands with highly expensive products. the lower floors are however with some sensible outlets. The food area is good (specially the cheese factory). Main attraction is the Ski slope and snow adventures for the kids (A bit overprices though). Worth a visit ONLY if you or the kids want to go to ski (it was overcrowded but may be due to july heat outside).

    If you are afraid about the idea of butterflies flying next to you and landing to rest on your body, then don't bother coming to this place.
    It is a bit surreal to see some people displaying total disgust / scariness toward the butterflies when walking through the exhibit.

    For the others, this place has a lot of butterflies.
    Considering the short life span of a butterfly, this is very impressive that this place operates year-round with so many butterflies.

    Through the first sections of the exhibit, we weren't so lucky to have butterflies come lay on us, except in some of the special rooms.
    The last pavilion was a big party, though. I guess the breeds of butterflies housed in this pavilion are more comfortable with / less scared of humans.

    This is a nice activity to walk in and relax, while admiring some very beautiful specimens of butterflies.

    We thought the entrance price was worth the visit.
    Expect to spend about 1 to 1.5 hours there.

    There is a huge supermarket where you can find almost everything and prices are good. Parking is an issue in Barsha mall, can take some time to find a spot but otherwise it is one of the places to do some quick shopping.

    The best fountains in Dubai for sure! I always have a great time at the Pointe whether I'm doing a bussiness lunch or just regular visit with family and friends. Food is great too.

    Having lived in Dubai for 18 months, I never even heard of this theatre. We came for a show on the Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged (comedy show).

    The good news is the theatre is based in Mall of the Emirates so there is plenty of parking and decent restaurants in the immediate area. I recommend parking on the second floor car park underneath where the Ski slope is as that is the same side and level as the entry to the Theatre. This is very convenience provided you know where to find it. We walked around Mall of the Emirates for about 10 minutes before we gave in and asked for directions. There are very few signs pointing out the location of the theatre. I suggest they have at least standing billboards (with arrows) inside the mall and around the car park so you know where to go.

    The main performance hall is very comfortable, large soft chairs, very clean - can't complain. We booked box seats but due to the low attendance we could sit where we wanted - nice flexibility.

    During the intermission, there is just one Costa coffee stand that is beating out hot drinks and snacks. This is another area of development where perhaps they could have a second option or offer pre-orders for people so that things are turned around more quickly. Alternatively, you could just march into the mall and pick up something quickly which is exactly what I saw people doing.

    There are many different events and tutorials going on at this theatre. I recommend checking out the options on their website and, if you're passing through MOE, there is a billboard outside with different craft events etc.

    This is a lovely gallery in the Mall. I saw a beautiful painting "Khalifa El Shimy" which I purchased for about 11,000AED. This was a few years ago. I had advised them to pack the painting properly as I was hand luggage. A true gallery knows that when you roll and pack an oil painting you do not roll it inwards. It must be rolled outwards in order to not cause the painting to crack. When I arrived home and opened the painting, it was completely ruined as it was incorrectly packed. They have never responded to any of my inquiries, and incorrectly advised VISA also that I had received the painting in good order.

We were able to tailor our day to our needs and wants which was great. We absolutely loved the Quad riding in the dunes, the camel ride, the Dune Buggie riding, sand boarding, and the sunset. Baiju made sure our day went smoothly and made sure we had fun. We were also able to get picked up and dropped off where we wanted which was really convenient for us. We all highly recommend Destination Insight and will use again if we come back to Dubai! and wants which was great.
