Dubai over the years have developed from a desert state to one of the most modern cities in the world. Being part of the oil-rich United Arab Emirates, the city already has big share in the national revenues. But despite this fact the city has emerged solely because of it's development as a tourist hub.
One of the greatest attractions that the government has managed to create in Dubai, is the festival season. Dubai is definitely a place to visit for people who love festivals and the associated shopping spree.
There generally two major festivals held in the city, one of which is the ever so popular Dubai Shopping Festival. The other is called the Dubai Summer Surprises; naturally as the names suggests, these festivals are held in winter and summer respectively.
The Dubai Shopping Festival especially merges people from different cultures to showcase their heritage at the Global Village.There lots of things you can do once you plan for visiting Dubai in the festive season. So make sure you are all ready for the next festive season.
