The Many Dubai Shopping Centers;
Festival, Deira, BurJuman, etc.
Hi, Kish here to talk about the Dubai shopping centers
Being a shopaholic, I try to time my visit to back to Dubai to coincide with the Dubai shopping festival so I can take advantage of the best prices available and enjoy what the city has to offer.
And in the instance when I cant make it during the shopping festival, I often head to one of the many Dubai shopping centers. I have to say that it is never an easy decision for me as I wonder which shopping mall to visit since there are so many of them.
I usually visit a few from each time I head back to Dubai. The glitzy malls like the festival city, Deira city center or the BurJuman are very large malls.
Some of the very best in designer wear can be bought at these malls, as most of them have more than 300 shops, each stocked to the rafters with the very latest and the best.
The next kind of malls, the small and the cozy are my favorites, not too big or too showy, just perfect. This reads like a Goldilocks story doesnt it? Well, dont worry, I do not have the three bears hunting after me nor do I have golden tresses. Anyway these small malls are just perfect to do the shopping from, with cafés and restaurants; they make the perfect base for anyone to kick start off their shopping spree.
Some of the small malls that I visit are the Lamcy plaza, the Jumeirah plaza as well as the Jumeirah center. I visit the Lamcy plaza since that seems to be the only shopping center to be open on Friday, but my visits to the other two malls are more or less a result of hearing about some of the great bargains that are available there.
The small malls are certainly worth visiting, allowing you to take in everything that is for offer there. In this way, you need not spend countless nights worrying about whether you had missed out on the deal of the century or not. It can be good psychologically no?
The Dubai shopping centers would not be the same if it were not for the presence of some traditional souks. These souks provide the very best quality when it comes to local Dubai merchandise, be it gold or diamonds. Remember the song, Diamonds are a womans best friend, well, visit the souks and you will end up with a lot of those friends in your handbag, all for very cheap!
Side fact: Dubai diamond jewelry is up to 60% cheaper than Europe. Now that is just insane!}
Goldilocks or not, I always have a terrific time shopping in Dubai at the time of the festival and plan to do so for the years to come. It can be one of my many annual vacations looool!
There are certainly many Dubai shopping centers with each mall trying to outdo the other, making these large malls seem like a runaway advertisement. Dubai is indeed a shoppers paradise and more or less a husbands nightmare lol. But then again ladies, the last part is for us to manage efficiently, what do you think?
And if you are the type to rather shop from the comfort of your own home and avoid getting out in that rush, crazy traffic and the hot Dubai sun, then definitely consider shopping online at Dubai's largest online shopping mall. I have seen amazing bargains here every time I have visited the site.
