Shoppers can also look forward to a world-class shopping experience in Dubai, with the leading malls and shopping centers offering extended hours – providing visitors ample time to enjoy the emirate’s bustling retail scene topped off by exciting promotions and family-oriented in-mall entertainment throughout the 17 days of festivities.
