#16 of 96 in Shopping in Dubai
Get good deals from the Far East at Dragon Mart, the largest trading area for Chinese products outside of mainland China. Opened in 2004, the dragon-shaped indoor market stretches out for 1.2 km (0.7 mi), with an abundance of colorful and interestingly arranged stores selling electronics, clothes, footwear, and much more, with independent vendors and leading Chinese brands competing for your business. Haggling is the norm, particularly when purchasing in bulk, so make sure to negotiate.

  • Grand Bazaar with a lot of goods that are useless, empty since the introduction of VAT at 5%. The location is difficult to access Via auto road by uncomfortable bus and tipped bcp, in short, a souk in tt price

  • The Largest Chinese Trading Hub Bargain-lovers and hagglers alike will find joy within the 1.2 kilometre-long, dragon shaped shopping warehouse in Dubai. What Dragon Mart Has To Offer Everything sold at Dragon Mart has been made in China and shoppers can find items ranging from fashion, medicine, interior decoration, garden accessories, sports equipment and electrical goods. In fact, Dragon Mart is the first and largest shopping venue for the supply of Chinese products in the region, hosting over 3500 individual stores and opening late most nights. Individual or wholesale purchases are available and shoppers are encouraged to haggle for the best prices. Dragon Mart is a truly unique shopping destination in Dubai.
  • Modern , similar to any mall, not like the old Dragon Mart 1. Not very crawded, with nice atmosphere. Good restaurants and cafes, with indoor and outdoor seating. It is two floors market with lefts and escalators. Car parking available with free parking services. If you would like to go to Dragon Mart 1, you only need to cross the street to the other side.
  • Best place for cheap Chinese items as import duty is free for importers , the place is huge is is shaped like a dragon if seen from above, you can find all the clones of the latest trends in the market right now, fidget spinners were selling like hot cakes when I had been to this place. I loved this place so much and bought so many cheap electronics ,I had come back again the next day to buy some more 😁
  • Not much in terms of the Dragon Mart charm. You won't find everything under the sun here, nor will you have huge choice of stores for the thing you like. Much cleaner and more spacious than Dragon Mart, but most shops aren't even worth entering once.
  • Liked the layout and design of shops. Loads of space. Shop staff were great. Prices are great. Worth a visit if you're looking to shop before returning home.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
