A new year in Dubai can only mean one thing: extreme shopping extravaganza with sky-high discounts and amazing family entertainment! January is the month to shop ´till you drop in much of the world with global sales kicking off shortly after Christmas, but in Dubai the shopping experience is taken to the next level, with malls revving things up a notch and launching special activities, daily raffles, competitions and tempting offers laced with heavy discounts. What´s not to like?

Celebrate the new year in Dubai with amazing offers as Dubai Shopping Festival 2019 kicks off

Calling all shopaholics for a retail experience that will shame all other shopping extravaganzas in the world. Dubai is the king of sales when it comes to its January Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) and all those lucky enough to be enjoying Dubai holidays between now and the start of next month (2 February to be more precise) can look forward to a myriad of special offers, unbelievable discounts, amazing competitions and plenty of entertainment for all ages.

All throughout the city shops everywhere around the city will participate in DSF, from malls to outdoor shopping areas like Market Outside The Box, and, of course, the traditional souks too. This is the finest of Dubai’s shopping scene united in one single goal: to make everyone engage in a shopping frenzy with plenty of rewards!

Everything, from fashion to jewellery is on sale and during the day shopaholics can snap up quite a few bargains while by night they can enjoy stunning fireworks displays lighting up the skyline after dusk and choose from a wide variety of concerts to head to, as well as special events and gala dinners being hosted at a number of venues across the city.

Here we outline some of the best places and best ways to go shopping mad at during Dubai’s Shopping Festival this month.

Fireworks at La Mer, Al Seef and The Beach at JBR

Every Thursday and Friday evening, La Mer, Al Seef and The Beach at JBR will be throwing an amazing firework show in celebration of Dubai’s shopping month. It’s a good idea to reserve a table at either of these restaurants to enjoy the scheduled fireworks, which will light up the skies on 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25 and 31 January and on 1st and 2nd February.

One million AED in cash prizes at selected malls

Those who celebrated New Year’s Eve in Dubai last 31st December 2018 and shopped at Etihad Mall, Al Barsha Mall, Reef Mall, Dubai Outlet Mall, Oasis Mall, Century Mall, Al Bustan Centre, Burjuman Centre, Al Mulla Plaza, Times Square Centre, Karama Centre, City Centre Me’aisem and City Centre Shindagha will be in with the chance of winning a cash prize that starts at 10,000 AED and goes all the way up to one million AED! All they need to be in with the chance of scooping up some serious cash prizes is to have spent over 200 AED on purchases made on or before31st December. Then, from 5th January and every Saturday until 2nd February, a lucky winner will be drawn up to set on the Global Village stage and spin the wheel to win up to 200,000 AED.

Al Seef Heritage Souq

Giving shoppers a rather unique chance to experience a traditional Arabian market against the backdrop of the scenic Dubai Creek, Al Seef Heritage Souq will allow visitors to engage with merchants and artisans while bartering for original pieces at a new-to-DSF installation. With a variety of educational programmes and entertainment, this is so much more than about shopping, and this new cultural initiative aims to bring something different to DSF 2019 in the context of a vibrant shopping market.

All that and so much more to come

In addition to all the exciting, above-mentioned offers and competitions there is a full calendar of events for DSF 2019, including live concerts and free-to-attend family activities within malls and in shopping districts.
