What's Covered

Journey to one of Dubai's historical neighbourhoods and weave through the alleyways of Meena Bazaar, where we will capture glittering streets, family-run shops that hold Diwali rituals (or “pujas”), and meet local celebrants proudly donning their finest festive wear. For one unparalleled night, the neighborhood explodes with an abundance of street-side energy and kaleidoscopic colors that will dazzle any urban explorer.

 

Alongside putting our street photography skills to practice, we will feast on sweet and savory treats from bustling Bur Dubai eateries. From traditional Indian sweets to tangy, vegetarian Bombay Burger's, there will be something to satisfy every palate. 

 

We will be sending you a link with all of the information such as: Meeting and ending points, what to wear and bring.
