Dubai – A Shopping Getaway
IBN Batuta Mall - One of the large Malls of Dubai
Dubai is where one can find every known brand there is. Garments, Electronics and everything else that can be shopped by tourists is waiting to be shopped all of Dubai. Even though Dubai shopping festival does create an event for shoppers, Dubai is an all year round shopping destination.
There are malls all over Dubai. Dubai Mall, Mall of Emirates, IBN Battuta Mall, Global Village, Festival City Mall, Jumeira Madina Shopping arcade, Wafi and so many more constitute an shopping experience. Its not difficult for even a non-shopper to get sucked into some too good to be true deals. Strict law and order scenario has ensured that goods are genuine. Gold Souks around Dubai are specialty markets that sell Gold and jewelry.
There are outlets from known brands in the west, that offer upto 90% off on out of date fashion lines and are lapped up by deal hungry travelers who do not care much about something that is a few months out of date with the western world.
To cover all malls and check every deal there is, a week also may not be enough. However hardcore shoppers are known to spend anywhere from three to five nights shopping.
Month long Dubai Shopping festival in Jan – Feb every year is a major draw for shoppers to get some amazing deals.
