It took more than 200,000 man-hours to complete, with 150 artisans from across the globe recruited to aid Dubai’s latest attempt at a Guinness World Record. A sneak preview of the Dubai Garden Glow in Zabeel Park was offered to Dubai Municipality workers and their families ahead of the full public opening on Wednesday. Flowers and trees are not the only things to have been growing in the park over the past 18 months. At just over 12 metres tall, a recreation of the Burj Khalifa – made from 330,000 small medicine bottles – is intended to be the world’s largest model of a national landmark made from recycled materials. AED30 million was spent on building the Dubai Garden Glow, which is expected to draw 5,000 visitors a day.
