What a perfect excuse for a luxury girl’s trip to Dubai! From January 05 to February 05, 2012 Dubai will be buzzing with shoppers looking to buy that perfect something during the city’s 11th annual Shopping Festival.
With Dubai’s hot winter weather and deals galore on offer, it’s time to dust off your charge card for a getaway to the world’s glitziest luxury capital.
No other city but Dubai would host a shopping festival, not for one week or two, but for an entire month. Dubai has never been shy about living life large and this festival is just another example of what you can do if money truly is no object.
This month long extravaganza for shopaholics attracts about 3 million people to Dubai and in 2009 alone, visitors reached the 3.35 million mark and spent Dh9.8 billion in 32 days of the festival.
Dubai’s largest and longest running shopping and entertainment attracts visitors by featuring deep discounts on boutique merchandise, daily car raffles, and spectacular fireworks lighting up Dubai’s night sky. Tourists from all around the world are lured not only for Dubai’s tax free shopping, but also for all of the events that take place during the festival.
