Shopping in Dubai Mall
For the ultimate shopping experience, pay a visit to the world’s biggest retail centre, Dubai Mall. Browse designer clothes in high end boutiques before getting an adrenaline fix in the indoor theme park, grabbing a bite to eat at one of the mall’s 150 eateries, and sipping on a cool drink as you watch the incredible Dubai Fountain.
With 1,200 shops and attractions including an Olympic sized ice rink and an aquarium, a visit to Dubai Mall can easily fill an entire day. Perfect for some time out of the hot Dubai sun, there’s plenty for the whole family to enjoy, including a souk with 220 stalls, a 22 screen cinema and even a real dinosaur skeleton. Don’t forget to take your camera to snap pictures of The Waterfall, an impressive feature that cascades through all four storeys.
The mall’s also home to KidZania, a unique role playing experience for families where your kids can choose a job and help to run a child-sized city. For even more action, head to the SEGA Republic indoor theme park where you’ll find 15 rides, including a giant slide, laser maze and three roller coasters, and more than 170 arcade games.
After shopping until you drop, go to see Dubai Mall’s giant neighbour the Burj Khalifa. From its observation decks you’ll experience unforgettable views as you see for miles from the world’s tallest building. If you don’t like heights, round off your day with a drink at one of the mall’s many bars with views of the city’s impressive skyline.
