9. SHOPPING FESTIVAL DUBAI SHOPPING FESTIVAL
What could be nicer than to spend with a friend a couple of hours (and possibly days) for relaxed shopping? Especially if the shop Windows are full of such cute heart slogans like “Sale 50-70%”. Winter in Dubai for the past 21 years in a row is a shopping festival in which all the Central malls are making huge discounts.
