One of the most celebrated events that attract tourists from all over the world is the Dubai Shopping Festival. This festival was first celebrated in 1996, and usually lasts about a month, opposed to a day or even a week. What happens during this event is that shopping malls in Dubai greatly reduce prices on select items down to about 30 percent of their actual retail price.
You can always find great deals on clothing and apparel during the Dubai shopping festival, and you can likely buy a whole wardrobe of stylish outfits for the price of one or two outfits for sale back at home. Other items you can look for, for a fraction of the price, are items of jewelry, perfume, shoes, and even cars. If you are eyeing an exotic car, your best bet to get one for an unbelievably low price is with the Dubai Shopping Festival.
This year, the Dubai Shopping Festival is from December 26th 2017 to January 28th 2018. Consider one of several Dubai Shopping Festival packages as a holiday gift for your mate or spouse, and your winter vacation will not come to a stop, just yet.
Of course, you can take your friends and family with your to Dubai, and enjoy more than just shopping. You can kick off your stay at Dubai at a relaxing dhow cruise. Winding down Dubai Creek, enjoy some down time after all the traveling with an authentic dinner with live music. After an enjoyable time on cruise, you would be rejuvenated and ready for a day of sightseeing and shopping.
Take a city tour of Dubai where you can see almost all of what this exciting city has to offer. If you are not sure where you want to go, or not sure where your sought after shops are located, take a tour and get the change to see everything at once.
Or if you want to enjoy the sunny desert or spend some time away from the busy downtown area, you can enjoy a rugged desert safari with camel rides, henna paintings, sheeshas, dancers, and more.
If you want a place that is the more exciting and entertaining kinds of fun, there is the Global Village. You will find several attractions when you want to take a break from shopping, including theaters, concert halls, and sporting events, all with air conditioning.
There are two locations in Dubai that this festival is honored at: The Dubai Shopping Centres, and the sacred souk district. Within the Dubai Shopping Centres are 40 different malls. Not stores, malls. If you do not have time to shop at all of them, you can choose a select number of malls with stores that most interest you. Among the most notable malls are the Emirates Mall, the Burjuman, and the largest mall in the world, the Dubai Mall.
You can also test your luck at one of numerous raffles. You can draw a number and hope to win a new car, money, bars of gold, electronics, or other luxuries at no extra charge.
For over 20 years, the Dubai Shopping Festival is a great destination for the entire family. Plan your trip by purchasing Dubai Shopping Festival packages and fly to Dubai shortly after the holidays to buy one of a kind gifts for the people in your life.
If your plans for Christmas gifts this year are electronics and clothes, why stay put, when you can purchase a nice package, save tremendously on gifts, and enjoy a well deserved stay in the bustling city of Dubai?
