  • You can't roam all around it in a single day, it is huge. Underwater aquarium is one of the attractions you get here. From the time you renter the aquarium to the time you exit, your 2 hours will be gone. Instant Ice-creams are another attractions, good Food Joints are available. Shopping for your loved ones can be done, if offer is there then you will get good clothes at reasonable prices which you wouldn't regret. Then there is SKI world inside, where you may learn skying. The Fountain Show in the evening with water reaching 140m height, a pleasant experience. Do visit it if you are there in Dubai.
  • By far the best mall in Dubai. From entertainment to restaurants you'll find here. What ever your looking for you'll find here. Spacious and a lot of places to discover. It even have it's own aquarium. If you have a lot of pending and time look no further than this place.
  • It's just a giant mall. Seriously. The food court is maybe the only highlight because of all the options. The flagship stores are novel. But if you're a tourist, go do something else! Or laugh at the fact that there is a Versace store for kids. There's so much else to do in Dubai. This place is not as grand or impressive as it sounds, not even the aquarium (though if you're here, take a gander).
  • This mall is huge so come with comfortable walking shoes. If you're in a shopping mood this is the place to be because it houses a great confluence of stores from all over the world. There are plenty of attractions including a huge aquarium, the world's tallest building, and artistic displays throughout the mall that make for a free sightseeing experience. There's a wonderful fountain with a water show using lights and music in the evening you don't want to miss. There are lots of different food outlets throughout the mall but I recommend picking one with a good outdoor view overlooking the fountain during one of its shows. Things will be a bit pricey here so if you're on a budget you can still stop by, take pictures, and get in a workout :)
  • Cons: Not a handicap friendly!! Doors are not automatic so even if you have a stroller some one should open the door for you because there are no automatic doors... Really!! Even I sent them an email about it and no one bothered to reply me. Pros: very good Japanese book store, it's huge.
