The largest city in the United Arab Emirates, has always been a major tourist destination. Dubao is not only known for its impressive modern and ancient attractions but also for being a major shopping destination. One can shop for almost all international fashion brands here. Most tourists visit Dubai simply with the aim to shop. The access to some of the most expensive brands in the world plays a major part in the appeal of the city. A large part of the city’s tourism also relies on its attraction as a shopper’s heaven.

In the February of 1996, the Dubai Shopping Festival was created as a retail annual event. The aim was originally to benefit the retail trade in Dubai. It however became so famous that the festival itself has become a major international tourist attraction. Scores of tourists pour into the city to take advantage of the festival to shop for everything from clothes to technology.

The Dubai shopping festival 2016 will begin from the first of Monday to the first of February. The festival falls under the category of family and lifestyle which means that the festival has something for everyone. The DSF 2016 has been specifically designed to ensure that there are events for all age groups. There will be live raffle drawings, fashion flash mobs and mega discounts which make it an event you must not miss out on. This year there are also plans to turn the ice skating rink into a runway for Fashion On Ice. Besides the shopping, don’t miss out on the firework which is a signature of the event and can be enjoyed from two different locations.

The discount deals that will be offered in the Dubai Shopping Festival of 2016 are unmatchable and on both international and local brands. One can explore both the modern malls and shopping centers and old souks to get deals on items. The daily raffles themselves offer prizes for potential winners which include cash and sometimes even cars.
Being the longest festival of its kind, one does not have to rush to find good deals. Avid shoppers can simply turn the Dubai Shopping Festival 2016 into a shopping vacation. The month long festival makes it easy for one to visit all the different stores and markets to make the most of all the discounts.

To make it simpler on the shoppers, the festival has designed a new #MyDSF2016 app which every visitor is advised to download. The app provides the shoppers access to all the deals and discounts available in the festival. Thus, ensuring an effective and satisfying shopping experience for all.
