Traveling isn’t all complete without trying to have a quick bite of the local culture of the destination you chose.

So if you’re looking for something worth seeing and experiencing for a short moment yet will leave a happy mark in your jetsetter heart, here’s a list of the different popular festivals around the world that you should check out.
Dubai Shopping Festival – Dubai (January 2 – February 2)
Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) started on 16 February 1995 as a retail event intended to revitalise retail trade in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It has since been promoted as a tourist attraction.
