  • I did not have time to actually go shopping, but saw that many stores had sales. The highlight for me was watching the sunset behind Burj Khalifa from the promenade by the water and the Imagine water ...  more »
  • We witnessed in December 2016 at the opening night of this new attraction in this mall: beautiful show! I'd say it's worth a visit if you are not too far apart

  • A great place to spend your shopping and entertainment hours with family and kids. The "IMAGINE" show near the waterfront is a mesmerizing and scintillating one. Kids are going to enjoy the time there. There are a lot of tasty food outlets to satisfy your hunger. Moreover, the IKEA showroom is very close by so its another addition to your comfort and access. To sum up, it is a complete shopping, dining and entertainment experience.
  • One very good mall in Dubai. Great facilities, restaurants and water view. After renovation this mall has begun very classy. They have IMAGINE show which is an amazing water show with 6 or so elements. Worth watching. Has a lot of high end stores but lacks a lot of common stores.
  • Very centrally located within the city. Easy access to the mall. Parking is a dream. Getting out of the premise is also not troubling. Wide variety of both fast food and dine in restaurants. Amazing water view with regular light shows.
  • Personally I've been going to this mall since i was young, and till now its one of the best malls in Dubai, especially whith the new extension that has been made in 2015, its a really clean, modern and very active. Lots of dining options and really nice shopping experience. It even has a show on the Dubai Creek using water, lights and flames, that seems to be timed exactly like the Fountains in the Dubai Mall... just an extra little fact! đŸ˜‰
  • Getting better than before. Specially after the renovation around the canal side. Shops are also different from other malls... Love it... Worth the distance.

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.
