And we can’t wait…

Some may say it’s too soon to celebrate the winter season, but the other half will surely disagree. And it seems that Al Habtoor City Dubai falls into the latter category as it is bringing back its Winter Garden on Wednesday, November 1, 2023.

The winter garden will be open until January 31, 2024 so you have plenty of opportunities to revisit. The best news? It’s pet-friendly, so you can bring your four-legged friends along with you.
