Celebrate and capture Diwali, the Indian festival of lights, in one of Dubai’s oldest and most vibrant neighbourhoods – with chai, traditional Indian sweet and savoury treats. We love!
Journey past a tucked-away temple into the alleys of Meena Bazaar, where the streets surge with glittering lights, “pujas” in family-run jewellery shops, and local celebrants thronging the streets in their finest festive wear. Get the most of the festival wandering through the neighbourhood as it explodes with enough street-side energy and kaleidoscopic colours to dazzle any urban explorer.
This visual feast will be seasoned along the way with sweet and succulent treats from the bustling eateries of Bur Dubai. From freshly buttered buns spiced with vegetable masala to tender chicken tikka, there is something to satisfy every palette.
Time: 5:15pm and 5:45pm
