Get the most amazing experience of your life with Dubai shopping festival 2014by Manya Singh Travel Blogger
Dubai has been the Czar of the shopping world and that’s no surprise. With some of the hugest shopping complexes under its bag, this city has been ruling the heart (and lungs and kidneys) of almost every shopaholic in the world. Men beware, if your wife insists that you buy a tour package to Dubai earlier next year, don’t be stunned. It is likely to happen coz the Dubai shopping festival 2014 shall commence starting 2nd January.
From 2nd January till 2nd February (when it all ends), the city shall experience a marathon of shoppers with tourists pouring in from every country and city imaginable.
Dubai Shopping Festival, which celebrated its first edition in the year 1996, has evolved over the years, growing from strength to strength and amassing more visitors and more retail investments with each successive edition. The 2014 edition will be its 19th appearance in a city which boasts of some of the shopping Frankensteins like the Dubai Mall and the Mall of the Emirates.
This festival is not just an event hosted to make shoppers trickle in and spend their hard-earned money (rather the heard-earned money of their husbands and boyfriends) over swanky goods and dresses in top retail stores. This festival is more of a glorification, a glorification of entertainment, of shopping culture, of tourism and of Dubai. So, the festival is synonymous with every aspect of entertainment and frolic. From the hip-swaying models to the blitzkrieg fireworks to the food-eating contests to the amazing display of luxury cars, the festival is a rage amongst people of all ages and both genders.
Dubai shopping festival 2014 is expected to be as big, if not bigger, than its predecessors. On the last count, the previous 18 editions have collectively witnessed 47 million visitors. The year 2013 alone saw the crowd count crossing the 3-million mark easily. It is no wonder that January will be the hottest tourist season in the city next year. This implies that a tour package to Dubai at this time won’t come easy on the pockets unless you are smart enough to book one in advance.The festival isn’t merely cut out for the ladies. Men will enjoy as much as their female counterparts. Even the children can be their impish self for once and soak in the buzz and sound surrounding this event. The entire festival is going to be one terrific experience for you. You have never seen and you are unlikely to see a shopping festival of this magnitude anytime in the future.
