The Dubai Mall

Downtown

Daily from 10am to 12midnight (1am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday)

The Dubai Mall is simply the world’s largest shopping center. A city in itself, with not only shops and restaurants, but theme parks, fountains, ice rinks, an aquarium, supermarket and much much more. It is impossible not to see it alongside the immense Burj Khalifa building, the world’s tallest.

It is very easy to get carried away and waste a good part of your time in Dubai inside The Dubai Mall. However, in the sweltering summer days, when outside temperatures easily reach 45ºC it becomes a heaven with air conditioned peace and comfort. If you enjoy shopping and browsing, you will love it. It has an outstanding mix of brands from many places you would not normally see on Western malls, plus all the big names seen from Baku to Buenos Aires.

The highlights are the Fashion Avenue, with high end shops, the Dubai Aquarium, the Dubai Fountain (do watch the hourly shows in the evenings) and the Burj Khalifa experience (going up to the observatory). All in all, a destination in itself.
