Dubai Shopping Festival
Celebrating its 22nd anniversary in 2017, the Dubai Shopping Festival 2017 (DSF) is the largest shopping and entertainment extravaganza in the Middle East. The shopping obsession peaks each year in January during DSF, the longest running festival of its kind. From fashion flash mobs to live raffle drawings, there’s an event for everyone during DSF 2017.
There is no income tax in Dubai, so the products of the leading brands you can buy with no extra charge all year round. But during DSF discounts rise up to 70%. Also if you go to this festival in Dubai, a beach holiday and entertainments will be offered to you as a bonus.
In Dubai you can buy everything: perfumes and jewellery, auto and electronics, clothing and shoes of any brand. But many come for oriental goods: gold bullion, cashmere shawls, carpets, daggers, spices and smoking accessories. Discounts are extended to all, and in some small stores you can also bargain. Rush of buyers is warmed by lotteries with precious prizes and a variety of events: ballets, musicals, concerts.
Whether you’re exploring the old souks or the grandiose modern malls, there are plenty of ways to save and win during DSF, or try your luck at one of the daily raffles with prizes that include cash and even cars.
