Thanks for this information. One of my close friends is likely to travel to Dubai during this period may be at the middle of February. Hope he will enjoy good shopping over there.
I've never been much of a shopper but this festival sounds like it might be interesting to see. Wish I had the time to go. I hope some one will go and post what they saw....and bought.
Do you ever wonder how all these stores stay in business? Especially in Dubai....there seem to be so many.
