International Shopping Festival

January 15-February 15 Dubai

With 40 American-style shopping malls, 4,000 retail outlets and almost 800 shops selling nothing but gold jewellery, Dubai is the obvious place to stage this extravaganza that flies in the face of the new austerity. The sheer range of goods on offer, from Arabian carpets and bedouin jewellery to designer fashion and electronics, explains its reputation as the world’s foremost shopping event. The month-long festival coincides with the best time to visit Dubai, with laser displays, fireworks, catwalk shows and live music concerts taking place every night.
