It aims to educate people about what lies ahead for them, so if you want to learn more about future trends such as autonomous cars or virtual reality headsets then this is a great place to start!

Miracle Garden Dubai

Miracle Garden Dubai is an indoor botanical garden located on the outskirts of Dubai. It is a great place to visit on a rainy day, or when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a bit. If you are looking for something that’s both educational, relaxing and fun – this is the place for you!

The garden features over 2 million flowers from all over the world growing in many different types of containers. You can walk through sections such as The Orchid Garden (featuring 12 acres of orchids), The Dahlia Garden (with more than 800 plants) and The Rose Garden which showcases more than 3,500 roses!

Gold Souk Market in Dubai

The Dubai Gold Souk Market is a tourist attraction that has been around since the 19th century. It’s located in the Old City of Dubai, which is also known as Deira.

The market sells a variety of gold jewelry, including necklaces, earrings, bangles and rings. The prices are much lower than you would pay at other popular shopping destinations like Dubai Mall or Mall of the Emirates because it’s not a brand-name store but rather a local marketplace where people buy and sell used goods from one another.

If you visit this market during Ramadan (which happens every year from June 17 to July 17), it’s especially busy because this time is when many residents from surrounding countries do their annual pilgrimage back home to visit family members who live in Dubai (and elsewhere in Jordan). If you come during this time expect long lines into some shops due to increased demand for certain products such as perfume because everyone wants something nice for their loved ones back home!

Ras Al-Khaimah

Ras Al-Khaimah is a city in the United Arab Emirates, located on the coast of the Persian Gulf. It is one of seven emirates that make up the country and has a population of about 200,000 people.

The area has been inhabited for over 2,000 years by human beings from different ethnic backgrounds including the Jafar, Awamir and Bani Yas tribes. In 1820 AD, Ras Al Khaimah became an independent state from Sharjah under Sheikh Sultan bin Saqr Al Qasimi who ruled until 1856 AD. 

Today the Ras Al-Khaimah is known for some of the adventure tours like Jebel Jais Zipline. Experience the amazing view from the hilltop fort. Get an opportunity to visit one of the oldest pearl fishing villages.
