Al Ain, known as the Oasis city of UAE has achieved another international landmark by organising an exhibit of hanging flower baskets in a number that has never been displayed anywhere in the world and has achieved the Guinness Book of World Records. Some 2,500 baskets filled with colourful flowers are arranged in a fabulous way in the show called Al Ain Paradise.
Vertical landscaping technologies have been used to create the 2,500 flower baskets that have set a brand new world record by a safe margin. Al Ain Paradise covers an area of 70,000 square meters, including the corridors and walkways. The baskets are off different types and shapes with many kinds of flowers. I have seen also the 12-meter high replica of the Eiffel Tower.
Some 25 varieties of flowers from America, Europe, Japan, Germany, and Italy are present in the garden.
Al Ain has earlier twice won second position in the Nations in Bloom – an international competition to select leading cities around the globe for good landscape management and environmental practices. Every year in the Spring Season, the city wears an attire of millions of flowers blooming all around.
