Get Ready For The Grand Dubai Shopping Festival

The fall of every year reminds us it’s the festive and holiday season around the globe. For me, the city of Dubai brings to my mind the huge malls, buildings, those yummy dry fruits I get to taste every year and, above all, the stories of the world’s greatest shopping event –The Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF). From kids to senior citizens, folks from all over the world visit the city built on sands, to experience the city’s grandeur and luxury through the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF), 2016.
