Dubai Summer Surprises 2010

Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) festivities kick off in the shadow of Dubai Shopping Festival, a far more popular event taking place during the tolerable climate months of January-February. DSS is not far behind and together with DSF, it plays a major role in characterizing Dubai as the Mecca for shopaholics.
This year, the festival has started on 17 June with 52 days of international fashion events, shopping discounts in malls, food, entertainment, kid’s events, concerts, enthralling every one.
Presented by Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment (DEPE), formerly known as the Dubai Shopping Festival Office, DSS delegates Dubai on an international level as shoppers from all around the place, are lured by the amazing discounts on merchandise. Nowhere will you find special offers like Best Buys, Buy One Get One Free, Added Value, and more interesting deals.

DSS’s lucky mascot ‘Modhesh’ has marked down its favourite merchandise, which could be gold & jewellery, electronics, international fashion labels, luxury watches, hotel accommodation or fine dining across various locations in Dubai. Also, to make the customers feel pampered there are various deals across all the major spas and salons around Dubai.

It is not always true to say, money burns a hole in one’s pocket. DSS proves it wrong with its Raffles draw where you get a chance to win 14 BMW series 3 luxury sedans. Draws will be held every Thursday from June 24, except for the Final Draw that will take place on Saturday, August 7.

Other than shopping, Dubai is admired for its perfect blend of outdoor attractions and historical monuments. Complete your trip to Dubai with a Desert Safari besides visiting the Park, Art Galleries, Golf Courses, Zoos and Museums. Alternatively, spend a little more to book yourself a helicopter ride to enjoy a view of the eye-catching Arabian Gulf.

Souqs & Markets

Gold Souq:
A place not to be missed, the Gold Souq is the ‘soul’ of Dubai and earned its rightful place as the ‘City of Gold’. Situated in the narrow alleys of Deira, well-known brands along with unbranded outlets sell gold in a wide range of accessories.

Spice Souq:
Spices typical to the Arab world are to be found only in the alleys of Dubai. Overpowering fragrances of strong spices fill the Arabian styled market. This is the ideal place to buy Arabian souvenirs that you’ll want to remember forever such as sheesha pipes, henna, incense sticks, sandalwood, etc.

Textile Market:
Textile Market is an excellent place to buy cloth from traders at reasonable rates. Items on display are exports from Afghanistan, India, Iran, UAE, Pakistan and Oman.
