Globehunters Announces Holiday Packages for Dubai Shopping Festival 2014

Globehunters has announced special packages at 4* Dubai hotels for the Dubai Shopping Festival in January. Exclusive holiday packages that include city and desert tours will be available at the Cassels Al Barsha and Emirates Grand Hotel for the duration of the Dubai Shopping Festival, which runs from 2nd January – 2nd February 2014.
The bespoke holiday packages - which start at £579 per person - include return flights and a variety of inclusive treats for guests to enjoy when they’re not bargain hunting.
As well as indulging in some tax-free retail therapy, guests will be able to see all the essential sights on the Dubai City Tour and experience the open expanses of the desert on the Dune Desert Safari.
The Dubai City Tour will take in the iconic Burj Al Arab and the magnificent Jumeirah Mosque. This is followed by a trip across Dubai Creek to visit the atmospheric gold souq which offers unparalleled discounts on gold jewellery.
The Dune Desert Safari departs late afternoon and takes guests into the unspoilt desert landscapes just outside Dubai. Guests will be driven over the dunes in a 4x4 and then have the opportunity to take pictures, ride camels and enjoy a BBQ dinner with belly dancing.
These special offers are expected to appeal to the increasing number of UK-based visitors heading to Dubai in January to take advantage of the Dubai Shopping Festival’s reduced prices. Hefty discounts of up to 75% on electronics, jewellery and perfumes are available at over 70 participating malls. Visitors can also try their luck in exclusive raffles; luxury cars, large cash sums and gold are amongst the prizes on offer.
The 32-day festival will begin with a spectacular opening ceremony on January 2nd which features an impressive fireworks display over Business Bay. Throughout the festival, visitors will be kept entertained by attractions as diverse as live concerts, falconry shows and celebrity lookalikes.
The Dubai Shopping Festival draws millions of tourists to Dubai every January, largely attracting visitors from Russia, Saudi Arabia, India and the United Kingdom. The increasing popularity of the Dubai Shopping Festival has been credited as the main catalyst for an increase in visitors to the emirate during January. The festival also coincides with the coolest period of the year in Dubai, with average January temperatures a pleasant 22°c.
As well as these Dubai Shopping Festival holiday packages, Globehunters will also be providing cheap flights to Dubai with leading airlines throughout the festival. Customers booking a Dubai Shopping Festival offer will be met at Dubai International Airport and taken to their chosen hotel, followed by a return airport transfer at the end of their stay.
Customers can book the Cassels Al Barsha and the Emirates Grand Hotel offers online or by calling 020 3394 6000.
