Spend and save at Dubai Shopping Festival

Did you know that more than 40 million people have bagged bargains at Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) during the 15 years since its launch? Run by the same office as Summer Surprises (yes, the people responsible for Modhesh), DSF is the original Dubai bonanza festival – Summer Surprises was launched later, in 1998. Of course, being in Dubai, DSF is no ordinary, bog-standard, run-of-the-mill festival. It’s known not just for shopping, but for the many events, including West End musicals, the Gulf Bike Festival and huge gigs.

Various timings and locations. Visit http://www.dubaishoppingfestival.com for details.
