By Sheena Amos

DUBAI 28 May 2019: Famous for its grandeur and luxury, Dubai is in the list of top-5 most visited destinations in the world. Dubai is also home to luxury shopping centres, with the new upcoming Cityland Mall to be the 1st inspired by nature and home to the largest flower garden.

It will have retail outlets set in lush gardens of exotic plants and greenery.

The idea is to enjoy shopping in garden setting.

Cityland Mall, a $400 million development set in the rapidly developing Dubailand neighborhood, is billed as “the world’s first nature-inspired shopping destination,” said the Dubai Government Media Office in a tweet quoting CNN.

“The park will feature streams and islands, rare trees and flower gardens for shoppers to explore.

“The businesses surrounding the green space will accommodate a second layer of trees and gardens on their rooftops,” it added.
