If you love shopping, then Dubai is the ideal location for you. The city attracts lots and lots of ‘ shopping tourists’ from all around the globe. The pivotal factor here is that as Dubai is an open port with low import duties, not only retail prices in Dubai are quite affordable in nature but also wide array of products is available here.

Dubai - Tax free

Because of tax-free nature, plenty of top brand-name products are economical in Dubai as compared to the countries of their origin. Irrespective of your taste — be it couture from Paris or London, top quality gadgets from Japan, or a piece of diamond jewellery — you are bound to find everything at the right price in Dubai. Keeping aside the souk districts and shopping malls, there are plenty of reputed departmental stores and boutiques all around the city.

Dubai is famous for Gold shopping

The most famous shopping market of Dubai is the gold souk, where you will find that narrow streets are lined with shop windows glinting with bracelets, necklaces and earrings in mind-blowing design. Even better, bars of 24 carat in any shape and weight in addition to bullion coins in 22 and 24 carat are also available in Dubai. Prices are quite economical and are judged by weight, not by design and craftsmanship.

Few famous locations of Dubai

If you are fond of latest gadgets, then go straight to Al Fahidi Street in Bur Dubai. This place is pretty famous for its electronic goods shops. On the other hand, just in front of Al Fahidi Street is the Cosmos Lane famous for the textiles of West and East, from cool printed cottons to exotic brocades. Karama is widely been regarded as the bargain basement of Dubai with plenty of busy shops selling toys, household goods, textiles, fashions, accessories and lot more.

Dubai Malls

There are number of attractive modern shopping plazas in Dubai, offering a wide range of shops, boutiques, supermarkets, restaurants and fast-food outlets. It is worth pointing that Dubai Duty Free at Dubai International Airport has won plenty of prestigious awards, so there is hardly a surprise that it ranks among the top duty-free operations in the world.
