Dubai - From Jimmy Choo and Gucci, to Levi and Dolce & Gabanna, Dubai is the place to be in 2014. Dubai kicks off the New Year with a bang and a whole lot of shopping, commencing the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) on 2 January 2014.

Celebrating its 19th edition, this 32-day shopping extravaganza is set to take shoppers by storm, offering specials from electronics to carpets and everything in between. Be there to experience the shopping thrill that most shopaholics can only dream of.

DSF started in 1996 as an initiative by the Dubai government to promote trade in the area, as well as to continue growth from year on year. It is the longest running festival of its kind in the region, and is world-renowned, as retailers, hotel operators and the travel industry gear up for a shopping season that continues to grow.

DSF also places a large focus on mall-based entertainment and early evening shows such as international concerts, musicals, sports, and fashion events, perfect for family affairs. The shopping and prizes up for grabs during the month caters to every age segment, so take the family to enjoy its magic.

With more than 68 world-class shopping malls in Dubai, the city showcases the best of both Western and authentic Arabic shopping experiences throughout the city. A definite highlight for any shopaholic would be a visit to the region’s largest mall, the Dubai Mall. Offering in excess of 1200 shops to intrigue and delight the most serious shopper, it also keeps the family in mind with a range of entertainment options, including SEGA Republic, Kidzaniaia, the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.
