Christmas markets in Dubai are back. Not only is it a great way to celebrate the festive season, but you can also shop for loved ones, indulge in Christmas treats, play a few games, meet Santa, bond with loved ones and much more.

Here are 4 Christmas markets that we love!

Winter Garden at Habtoor Palace

Originally created as part of Al Habtoor City’s Festive Season activities, the Winter Garden has since then expanded to a celebration of Dubai’s cooling season, inviting everyone outdoors to connect around the hotel’s pop-up stalls and specialties, international street food, and local favorites.

From spectacular activities including fun rides for the little ones to a dedicated play area and art display, the Winter Garden comes alive with fun for everyone. Delicious aromas of gingerbread and hot chocolate waft along the Winter Garden, while the constant entertainment of street artists and acrobats invites the mind to roam free. And with Santa making its surprise appearance for some memorably fun photo opportunities, Winter Garden at Habtoor Palace is truly one of the most magical Christmas markets in Dubai.

Harbour Wonderland at Dubai Harbour

Brand new to the city this year is the luxury neighborhood’s Harbour Wonderland – the first festive market to be held at the up-and-coming seafront district with an eight-meter floating Christmas tree.

The nautical-themed event will host pop-up stalls, games and activities as well as an outdoor ice rink, a Snow Park, a Santa Claus meet-and-greet, and much more. Giant origami-style boats can also be spotted.

Visitors can enjoy fun family-friendly games and activities or pick up food and beverages from vendors such as Raw Coffee, Zero Gravity and Jumeirah Hospitality.

Desert Winter Wonderland in Bab Al Shams Desert Resort

This festive season one of the best resorts in Dubai – Bab Al Shams Desert Resort, brings the Christmas spirit to the Arabian desert as it transforms into a desert-themed Christmas wonderland with its joyous offerings that’s perfect for your family, friends and loved ones.

A 40-foot Christmas tree beautifully decorated, Christmas choir, delicious F&B offerings including mulled wine, hot chocolate and minced pies, more than 50 Christmas stalls and a meet and greet with Santa. Visitors will be able to enjoy all this and more, while surrounded by desert, in what makes for a pretty uniquely Middle Eastern festive market.

Festive Season at Town Square Dubai Park

Town Square is being transformed for the holiday season with plenty of fun activities and a wide range of food and drink stalls serving up festive favourites and winter warmers such as roasted chestnuts and hot chocolate. Get into the festive spirit as the magical celebration continues with fun performances, activities and much more at Town Square Dubai Park!
