Shoppers heading to Dubai will find plenty to keep them interested in the coming days.

Travellers taking flights to Dubai may want to make sure they have some extra space in their suitcases as the emirate is poised to launch its Shopping Festival 2012.

The month-long event will kick off this evening (January 5th 2012) with a huge fireworks display that will stretch around six kilometres from Business Bay to Dubai Creek and Sindaghah.

People visiting will have a huge number of attractions to choose from to keep them entertained, with the Global Village set to be one of the most popular events again this year, showcasing the work of a number of companies and offering entertainment from circus performers.

Other highlights include performances from a range of international stars and raffles which will give away amazing prizes, including a Nissan car every day.

In the coming years people who take flights to Dubai to attend the shopping showcase could find it easier than ever to get to the massive Dubai Mall, as the centre is to have a pedestrian walkway installed.
