About Festival City Neighbourhood
Dubai Festival City is one of the city's most vibrant shopping, dining, and entertainment districts. It is also a popular vantage point for stunning sunsets and an evening light display over the surrounding sea, and it is just five minutes from Dubai International Airport. The Dubai Festival City Mall is a must-see attraction, with over 350 shops including mega-department stores including Ikea Dubai and Robinsons. Brands like Top Shop, H&M, Coach, DKNY, and several others are available. There's also a movie theater and a wide range of eating choices, including shops, bakeries, and a massive food court. IMAGINE, the world-record-breaking water, light, and laser projection display that takes place everyday after sunset at Festival Bay, is a must-see for visitors. Some of the city's most famous festivals, such as the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature in March and the Dubai Shopping Festival in January, are held in Festival City. Festival City, which borders Dubai Creek, also has a number of world-class hotels, including the Intercontinental.
