What To Consider
Once you have packed your bags and booked the next available flight, there are still few things to be considered, once you land on the beauty of the desert. You don’t need to panic; it’s all about some cool tips to let you enjoy your shopping more vividly. At first I suggest you explore the city on Google as much as you can, and trust me your search will never go wasted, then once you landed and heaved a sigh of relief and joy, then plan your shopping itinerary, here the trick works, do not go for your ease and comfort rather when other people are enjoying the sleep, you move out and start your shopping journey, since, in the early hours, you can bargain more easily and steal the deal. The next tip is oozing from my set of experiences, the DSF is the time for huge rush of people and long queues in front of changing rooms, play smart and wear multiple layers of clothes so that you can try on clothes over your T-shirt, although this trick does not apply for all the occasions but still can come handy. Also, the last most important aspect to consider is to, don’t let your heart stick to one piece immediately, explore the treasure of DSF.

The Dubai Souks are always crowded and gets more crowded during the festival time; Dubai has much to offer apart from mall shopping, you can experience the true essence of Arab culture in the Gold Souk, Spice Souk, Perfume Souk, and Textile Souk. Some of the popular souks are: Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Souk Al Bahar, Khan Murjan, Meena Bazaar, Naif Souk, which are ancient with the feel but the offerings have already made a successful pace with the technology. You can get the spices imported from Iran, India & Pakistan, and the original Attar from Arab. Also, you can buy a cheap, but first copy of international brands’ perfumes, clothing, bags, shoes etc.

There is more temptation spilling from the Dubai, with colorful flash mobs and Raffle draws and the breath-taking fireworks and worth to mention once you are in Dubai you can’t go ahead without giving a stint to your adventure buds by opting for a desert safari and go dune bashing as well.
A Touch of Technology
Dubai indubitably, is a perfect city to shop, holiday with your loved ones, technology has already cured the wound of distance and now everybody has Dubai at their fingertips through their mobile phones, although Dubai is a promising tech valley, yet there are many popular and prominent fields and business in Dubai, which are still unexplored due to the lack of mobile app technology. During my stay in Dubai, I found many shops in local markets, which sell hand woven girls’ shoes and bags with the finest embroidery and sequined work but are not looked out, unless you visit Dubai. Had there been a mobile app adoption for the small business owners in Dubai, so their business can grow in the revenue more than double of their current earnings. A mobile app can make their product go global with a single mobile app. It is not that these businesses are hidden, but are yet to be explored globally at the convenience of the customer.
