Dubai Ramadan night market grows into the role
DUBAI // This year's Ramadan Night Market promises to be bigger and better, organisers say.
The market, now in its second year, is due to run from August 1 to 10 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Entry is free, and the market will be open from 8pm to 2am and 5pm to midnight for Eid Al Fitr.
The expanded market will feature a new Arabian souq, a fashion pavilion, food pavilion, health and beauty bay and a children's zone.
Residents and tourists will be able to browse for electronics, souvenirs, clothes, spices and perfumes from up to 400 outlets.
Jewellery and accessories will be on sale from around the world, with abayas from local designers such as Mauzan and Dantella Designs on show.
There will be free trials of cosmetics, herbal and mineral products.
The UAE's heritage and culture will be on display in a majlis in the Arabian Souq.
Children will be kept entertained with face painting, sand art, bouncy castles, special indoor rides and a movie room.
The Ramadan Night Market is organised by Sumansa Exhibitions. Last year it attracted 50,000 shoppers.
