And, according to Gulf News, Bur Dubai is the perfect place for the festivities.
The news source claims that in the run-up to the event, which begins today and will be acknowledged for the next five days, this strip will come alive.
Said to be the oldest Indian enclave in the emirate, Meena Ramchandani said of the area – in which she has lived for 32 years – that she cannot imagine being elsewhere for the holiday.
“Even my daughter who is settled in Spain is visiting us so that she does not miss the celebrations in Bur Dubai. The fervour and spirit of celebrations are unmatched anywhere,” she added.
Elsewhere, the emirate was championed by Time Out Dubai as a haven of non-smoking pubs and bars for travellers struggling to kick the habit.
