Christmas Markets in Dubai

You’ve already written your letter to Santa and pulled last year’s Christmas jumper out from storage. Now all that’s left is to go shopping.

The festive season is as much about scoffing minced pies and watching your favourite old movies in the lead-up to December 25 as it is about celebrating on the actual day.

So what better to help you get into the spirit of things than a Christmas market? We’ve rounded up the pick of the bunch to visit in Dubai this December so you can pick up gifts for friends and loved ones, decorations for your home and many even treat yourself to something.
