It’s Christmas Eve, and Dubai is definitely feeling the spirit of the holidays.
There are several Dubai property areas and top spots of the city that are decked out for the season. This Christmas, we decided to have a look at some of the best Dubai areas and see how they’re celebrating this joyous occasion. So maybe we won’t be able to have snow or a cold winter chill, but the metropolis is sure to provide the next best thing.
1- Christmas Market Fair: Dubai Festival City
Dubai Festival City is pulling out all the stops for the holidays with their Christmas Market Fair. Families can get into the spirit with a larger-than-life Christmas tree, delicious and traditional food stalls, Santa and his elves, and even real snow! Happening until Christmas day, Dubai Festival City will also feature the well-known Imagine show that incorporates water fountains, laser light shows, and so much more. The best part? It’s all completely free to visit. So grab your nearest and dearest ones and head down to the Christmas Market Fair at Dubai Festival City.
2- Mall of the Emirates
Still missing the snow? Don’t worry, the emirate has got you covered. If you feel that the city still needs the feeling of a white Christmas then head down to Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates, where you can enjoy a ski ride, a snow ball fight, or the taste of hot coco with the cold and chilly winter air. You can also enjoy penguin shows, a walk in the snow park, or sliding down a snow sled all in the comfort of being inside of a mall, where you can even get your last-minute Christmas shopping done.
3- Souk Madinat Jumeirah
Souk Madinat Jumeirah has remained an old favorite when it comes to holding the annual Christmas market fair. Every year, the Souk Madinat Jumeirah holds a wonderful Christmas fair that features special offers from some of the best restaurants and cafes in the area, gorgeous Christmas lights and decorations, and even a special snow zone for the little ones.
4- Downtown Dubai
Think winter wonderland and Downtown Dubai comes to mind. This year, almost all Dubai areas are decked with gorgeous lighting, giant sculptures of reindeer, and Christmas themed decorations. At Downtown Dubai they even have a small Christmas fair at Burj Park where they feature wonderful stalls, Christmas trees, and even a snow park for the entire family. Enjoy the festivities in the ‘Centre of Now’ at Downtown Dubai.
5- City Walk
Take a Christmas walk at City Walk. This Dubai area features unique market stalls, delicious food & drinks from incredible restaurants, and of course live entertainment and shows. City Walk has something for the entire family whether you want to enjoy a special Christmas movie at Roxy Cinemas or indulge in adrenaline-pumping games at Hub Zero, or even have a learning experience this season at the Green Planet. Whatever it is, City Walk has your Christmas plans sorted.
