People going on holidays to Dubai in late 2008 could benefit from celebrations planned for Muslim festivals celebrated in October and December.

The Dubai Shopping Festival Office has announced that three days of celebrations will take place in the two months respectively in order to mark Eid ul-Fitr (the end of Ramadan) and Eid al-Adha (the Festival of Sacrifice).

The former will occur on October 2nd, while the latter will take place on December 8th.

According to Laila Suhail, chief executive of the Dubai Shopping Festival office, shopping malls will decorate their stores, while outlets will hand out sweets and discounts.

“The close coordination between the private and public sectors in Dubai will play a vital role in rendering the inaugural edition of Eid in Dubai a resounding success as we all expect,” she commented.

Ms Suhail added that Dubai could become one of the world’s top destinations during the two festivals as holidaymakers seek to visit in order to see the shows and cultural celebrations.
