‘Dubai Miracle Garden’ rises in Baguio City this Christmas

As the Yuletide season nears, decorative and miniature-to-large scale Christmas villages are again rising up in cities to give joy to Filipino families.

Baguio City Country Club’s Christmas Village has again opened to public, this year featuring a theme inspired by the Dubai’s Miracle Garden.

“This year’s theme is inspired by Singapore’s ‘Gardens by the Bay’ and Dubai’s Butterfly Garden,” BCC communication officer and client relations manager Andrew Pinero said.

In 2015 Dubai Miracle Garden opened the Dubai Butterfly Garden, the world’s largest and the region’s first indoor butterfly garden and sanctuary for over 15,000 butterflies from 26 species.

As Baguio is known for Panagbenga Festival (Flower Festival), both artificial and real flowers were used to decorate the country club’s attraction area.

A total of 10,000 pieces of artificial flowers and plants like sakura trees, sunflowers, tulips, fioni, various orchid species, stargazers, roses, and carnations ornament the Christmas Village. Meanwhile, about 5,000 pieces of real plants with fresh blooms were used.

Adopting the concepts of the Singapore’s Garden by the Bay and the Dubai Miracle Garden was the idea of BCC General Manager Anthony De Leon, who recently arrived from his trips to Singapore and Dubai.

The total cost of the production for the Christmas Village was over P700,000.

For everyone who wish to see the Christmas Village’s version of Dubai Miracle Garden in Baguio, it is open to public from November 9, 2018 to January 6, 2019, from 2pm to 10pm on weekdays and 2pm to 11pm on weekends.

Entrance free is P120/adults and P85/seniors & children.
