Beeline for Honey
DUBAI - Cosmetics made from honey mixtures and medicinal honey are attracting huge crowds at the Honey Festival being held at Al Seef Street as part of the Dubai Shopping Festival 2009 (DSF). The Honey Festival, an exhibition and sale of different honey products from around the world, will continue till February 13. It is open between 5pm and 10pm.
Around 15 local vendors are displaying honey products from Yemen, Lebanon, Pakistan, Iran and other countries. Visitors can taste from a variety of honey samples before buying and go through a number of information pamphlets on the benefits of honey including its antibacterial properties. The free daily competition of locating the mysterious door at Khan Murjan, the inspired recreation of a historic 14th century souq, at Wafi has not been located for the last seven days. Officials at Wafi have, therefore, hiked the prize money to Dh35,000.
