Dubai is world-famous for its series of annual festivals, and this city of superlatives knows how to stage a world-class event. One of the most noteworthy yearly events is the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF).
On the 28th of January 2010 Dubai stores will take part in this 31 day festival by offering fantastic discounts across the board on a range of products from high profile designers to basic household wares. This is the 15th year of the now infamous Dubai Shopping Festival, which last year saw 3.35 million visitors spending approximately 9.8 billion Dirham’s across 32 days of shopping. If you are planning on a Dubai holiday then this is the best time to visit the shopping malls and grab a bargain! Shoppers can expect discounts of between 20 to 70% on purchases made at over 40 shopping centres and souks. Shops will remain open almost around the clock during the festival and will be accompanied by firework displays and designer fashion shows. Visit the DSF website for a full itinerary of events during this period.
