Duty-free shopping is synonymous with visiting Dubai. All of the airports have duty-free shops.
Dubai Duty Free is recognized as being one of the best in the world.
Gold and jewellery are still the most popular consumer items, but you can purchase a huge array of goods in these duty-free shops, including cigarettes, alcohol, leather goods, electronic and photographic equipment, Music CDs and DVDs, toys, perfumes and cosmetics, luxury gifts, fashions and sporting equipment. Prices are extremely competitive and duty-free promotions, in which you can win significant cash prizes and luxury cars, are legendary.
A well-stocked bookshop offers everything you could wish to read on a plane ranging from international bestsellers to locally published guidebooks and coffee table publications. The range of clothes is not enormous though, so it would be better not to leave clothes shopping to the last moment!
