Who has been to GV 2008? How was it?

For those who hasnt been to this year's but went last year, does it get better progressively or its better to go in the beginning. I noticed it has only started on 13 Dec. Ends 1 Mar.

Better off going at the time of the DSF, that's when most of the activities will be going on.

I have to agree with sage. Calm down intimateali. You are over reacting. Consider yourself lucky living in Dubai. If you are living in RAK, what other activities can you do apart from going to the "ultimate shopping experience" centre. And trust me you will be disappointed.

It wasn't as bad as I expected, enjoyed sampling food from different countries. The Czech stand was curious - glass trinkets amongst all the Middle Eastern clothes and perfumes from the surrounding stands. Overall, the place comes across as a cheap run-down carnival.

It doesn't open till 4pm, which is a good time to go. Starts to gets crowded after about 6pm.

Manar Mall? Well, it's a step up from Nes Nas at least :).
