Discover India in Dubai
Dubai is a melting-pot of cultures, with most of the city’s population being made up of expats who have moved to the city and now call it their home.
With that, Dubai has grown to cater for each of those cultures by opening up restaurants, attractions, and more, in order for locals and tourists alike to have the opportunity to learn and indulge in each of them. In this article we are going to look at where tourists can discover India in Dubai, through a number of popular attractions and restaurants:
The first theme park of its kind in the world, Bollywood™ DUBAI – a Dubai theme park – is dedicated
to all things Bollywood. There are five fascinating zones where guests can experience a number of
different environments that are inspired by the greatest Bollywood blockbusters. The zones include
Bollywood Boulevard where guests are greeted by cafes with live entertainment and the Rock On!!
Restaurant, visitors can stroll the streets of Mumbai at Mumbai Chowk with an array of different
foods on offer, as well as a number of chances to shop until you drop. Rustic Ravine includes never-
ending adventures as would play out in Dabangg, Lagaan and Sholay, and the Royal Plaza includes
the Rajmahal Theatre, that will host the region’s first Broadway-style Bollywood musical. Lastly,
Collywood Film Studios Featuring Hall of Heroes enables guests to learn how to create a blockbuster
like Zindagu Na Dobara, as well as meet their favourite Bollywood superheroes.

Located at the The Souk Dubai Mall, the Indian Emporium sells a wide variety of goods, including all kinds of textiles – mainly silks that come from the north-western state of Kashmir. Here shoppers can find beautiful shawls, curtains, and cushions, in a number of different colours and in every design imaginable, ensuring that shoppers will find exactly what they are looking for. Additionally, there are kaftans made with jewel-coloured silks and gem incrusted necklines that are the perfect evening wear for Dubai’s hot climate and for shoppers who are looking for a dressier clothing option.
