It’s time to plan your winter holidays? Are you from a country, where winter is really a winter? Your memory can’t fix a childhood or present without the snow and the extreme cold? While people dream of such snow at Christmas, you may be in complete boredom and wish to flee somewhere warm.
What if you were told that the lowest temperature in Dubai in winter is 14°C (57°F)? And what about this- in the worst case, the cloudless sky starts raining, but never snowing. Yes! Go pack your bags.
Dubai, the boosting city, hosts a great number of entertainment options. For Christmas, you are free to arrange your agenda -a Christmas dinner or a sunny beach, a Christmas festival or a stroll over the city? Let’s start with the festivals.
Dubai Winter Festival
Annually, this feast comes up with high festive mood. Hosted by The Dubai World Trade Centre, the feast continues 3 days. The spacious Ice Rank engages hundreds of visitors. Kids and parents have fun in the snow fight zone, build a real snowman in the middle of the desert. Music and dance lovers relish the performances of various bands on the entertainment stage. Shopaholics are also welcome in the Christmas market. But which is more “wintery”, everybody admires the giant Christmas tree at the heart of the center.
Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF)
For 20 years, since 1996 the Dubai Shopping Festival has been gathering thousands of tourists in Dubai to enjoy the Shopping Fete. Here money and time are not as important as having the passion for shopping, since every day discounts and raffles don’t let your pocket get empty. This is a real celebration for not only the shoppers and retail traders but also for the fashion “addicts”, street plays and firework fans, film and diverse festival enthusiasts. Traditionally held at the beginning of the year, the Dubai Shopping Festival will take place from January to February 1 in 2016.
