Shopping in Dubai..fun and convenience ,together
For the expat whose idea of fun is relegated to cruising the aisles, the city center and dubai shopping mall can be thrilling, with selections of malls, souks and specialist stores in every crook and cranny. Authentic Bedouin paraphernalia, Persian-style carpets and textiles abound in the local markets, while brand names and electronic goods can be scooped up for relatively cheaper than elsewhere in the world.
Most shops open from 8am to 1pm, and then reopen again after the heat of the day at around 4.30pm until 8pm, or even later. Malls are air-conditioned and remain open from 10am until 10pm. Most shops, malls and souks usually close on Friday mornings.
