  Global Village in Dubai Shopping Festival
by Rinjani

Favorite thing: Dubai Shopping Festival is one of the A-waited event for almost everyone in Dubai. Usually it starts in the beginning of the year and it takes around one month for a merry festive season. (January to February)

Most of the shopping malls give a discount, special offer and bargain in the season. Checking the newspaper is a-must-to-do activity to check the offer. It is the best time for shopping.

There is also raffle ticket, with unbelievable prizes. Carnaval almost every night, fireworks, etc. It is a festive season for Dubaian and non-Dubai residents.

Fondest memory: Another great event is Global Village. As its name, Global Village (usually located in Garhoud area) is a village for the world?s citizen. You can find many participating countries in the event. Try their local taste, shopping souvenirs and don?t miss to taste the food.

You need to buy an entrance ticket to enter the village. The best timing to visit is in the evening. And don?t wear heels, since you will need to walk a lot.
