Sometimes you want to do more than just see the world. You want to shop and bring back home precious bits of knick-knacks, clothes or jewelry from street markets, retail chains or local boutiques. Come December, the holiday shopping season is upon us and a great way to make the most of this season is plan a holiday shopping trip to Dubai that’s known for its thriving malls, jewellery markets and night souqs. The Dubai Shopping Festival also beings on December 26 and will continue for a month till January 26.
This mega shopping attracts travellers from different corners of the world and offers great prices and bargains from different retailers, ranging from clothes, accessories, gold, children’s products and furniture, along with amazing fireworks in select spots across the city, stellar performances by celebrities and special programmes for kids. It’s a great time to explore the city that enjoys great weather, festive vibes and looks gorgeous with lights and colour.
To help you make the most of this mega festival, we at Flying squirrel Holidays have specially crafted a four-night and 5-day trip to Dubai from January 23 to January 27, 2019 with an itinerary featuring lots more than just retail therapy. Enjoy a fascinating dinner cruise, experience an enthralling desert safari, visit the Burj Khalifa and more with us.
Upon your arrival in Dubai, reach your hotel, relax and get ready to enjoy a beautiful evening Dhow cruise on the newly opened Dubai Canal. Board a glass-encased boat, gently under the new waterfall on Sheikh Zayed Road, enjoy stunning views of the Dubai skyline and Burj Khalifa with a sumptuous platter in a relaxing ambience.
On the second day of your trip, opt for the city tour and a visit to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building and Dubai’s iconic structure. On the city tour visit Dubai Museum, to learn about the heritage and history of the country. You can explore traditional Arab homes in the Al Fahidi area close to the Dubai Creek. Next, check out the Jumeirah Mosque, portraying an ideal blend of Islamic and contemporary architecture. A visit to the Palm Island, the crescent shaped man-made island is not to be missed and then wind down at the Jumeirah beach to enjoy the sea and surf.
We have kept the entire third day of your trip at leisure to ensure you have ample opportunity to experience the best of the shopping festival and spend the day the way you want to.
On day four, relish a flavorsome breakfast at the hotel, relax and late afternoon brace yourself for a desert safari. This is is one of the most sought-after adventure activities offering you a chance to see the sky in shades of yellow and red amid the vast expanse of amorphous red dunes. Once the desert exploration trip gets over, you are taken to desert camps. Enjoy the dinner, and the music and dance that accompany it.
On the fifth day, after a hearty breakfast proceed towards the airport for your homeward journey. If all this sounds exciting, call us to plan your customized itinerary and enjoy the best of Dubai.
