Summer in Dubai can be really really hot! With temp reaching 47 C+ during August which is like, now! eek! Worst is when there’s sand storm as well! Good thing though, there’s still plenty of things to do even at this time of scorching hot weather. Plenty of offers from hotels, resorts and shopping malls!
Dubai Summer Surprises is a SALE from all shops that runs for more than a month. This year, it will run until 20.August. So for Dubai residents, we still have 16 days to storm the malls and enjoy the discounts! 😉
DSS brings Modhesh back in town too. Kids will definitely enjoy at Modhesh World which offers plenty of entertainment for the whole family. It’s a definite must visit in Dubai during summer. It’s like a small indoor theme park with plenty of rides, games, bouncy castles, mascots, performers and plenty of food offers too. At one point, there was even a small pony ride inside and a petting zone for animal lovers. I haven’t visited this time as we’re always busy during the weekends, but I will definitely go before it closes.
Back to shopping, sales can even reach upto 75% off! Best time to head to your favorite store for bags, dresses, shoes, make-ups, home ware, appliances and whatever you can think of. 😉 I managed to buy some office dresses at MANGO, Pull and Bear and H&M at a really really low price of 60% off. 😉 And would you believe a very cute kitty cat shorts for my daughter only costs AED 10 at H&M? That’s a score! I’m sure after DSS it will go back to its original price of about AED 60+ each. I need to do more shopping for my little one since school is about to start at the end of this month.
With plenty of shopping malls in Dubai itself, you can use your Dubai summer vacation or weekends for mall-hopping! 😉 Each shopping malls have events being held for the whole shoppers/families. Ibn Battuta for example brought here My Little Pony 😉 and yes, we were there! Can’t miss it for my little one who is very addicted to MLP.
Mirdif City Center has Alvin and the Chipmunks and Dubai Festival City has Angry Birds. I think they do rotate on weekly basis though so if you miss MLP event at Ibn Battuta, check other malls that they will visit.
When it comes to movies, there’s plenty of nice films currently showing on VOX and NOVO cinemas. Will Smith will be here this weekend for promotion of his Suicide Squad film! Too bad I did not win the virgin radio contest for a free ticket to watch the premier with Will Smith. But luckily, my sister did win since her company had an internal competition and she won a ticket for two! 😉
It’s Thursday here, that means start of the weekend! yipeeee! I got activities booked for my little one already so we’ll have a busy weekend too.
Enjoy summer in Dubai. Happy shooppppping!
