I always say shopping is cheaper than a psychiatrist.
– Tammy Faye Bakker
And in today’s stress filled world, we very much need a ventilator to let our worries breathed out. Well, a holiday does not necessarily mean to lay on the beaches under the palm shades! A holiday is to remove stress right? Ask any girl out there what’s the best stress buster and the answer is always one- Shopping! And I am quite sure that the biggest stress buster for any man would be to see his woman’s affectionate smile. 😉
When planning for an exclusive shopping holiday, the first place to cross our minds is Dubai! The icon of deserts- Dubai is best known for… well, everything! But being more specific to our topic right now, it is best associated with shopping. Every year, it holds a grand shopping festival renowned world over as Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF).
The Dubai Shopping Festival 2014 is going on right now so if you have not yet booked your tickets, you still have got some time as it is a month long shopping fiesta! However, you should not procrastinate your plan because each minute people are grabbing hold of items that you may want!
