Yanbu flower and garden festival started March 14 and will ends on April 7, 2017. We visited year 2015 and we had a chance to visit again last Friday, March 17,2017. There were a lot of visitors and I think it would be better to come as early as 4 pm to appreciate the flowers.
Timing: Sat-Thurs 8:30 – 5pm Friday 4 pm -11pm
Admission : Free .. but there’s a minimal fee to get up to the Flat form and see the areal view of the garden. Another fee to Yanbu Butterfly garden. Beware, it was a long queue. Sorry, I was not able to ask how much the entrance fees.
So, whats new?
The addition of the fountains, made the place more refreshing and you can have your ice cream yoghurt too 🙂 The weather was cool so we just passed it!
One new thing that I like the most is the addition of recycling items.
Do you know how long a plastic bottle decompose? 450 years! Omg!
See the white and blue? It is made of 41000 bottle caps which represent sea waves.
How about a rubber tires? It will take 50-80 years!
made from old tires
flowers are made from plastic bottles
made from papers
It’s amazing to see the flowers bloom in Yanbu, remember this is Saudi Arabia 🙂
If you got tired of walking, you can also catch the cho – cho train 🙂 hahaha and you will reach your destination in 2 hours, just kidding.
or maybe just sit down a bit 🙂
or when you got bored, you can always call FB 🙂 or play games?
or maybe after seeing all those flowers, you will feel the sweetness of your heart 🙂
If you are from Philippines, this is “Enrique” and you will know who he is 🙂
and of course our “Liza”
Ladies, relationship goal? the “lizqen” of jeddah 🙂
How sweeeeeet…. so what are you waiting for? smell the flowers, feels the breeze and fall in love..wow!
