  • Pros : best mall in the middle east or may be in the best in the whole world. Its a shopping heaven for brand savvy shoppers. Good parking facility and the mall is very easy to navigate. If you don't shop or spend anything, still you have a lot to see and enjoy there. Friendly staff and middle class don't need to activate their poor guy mode to enjoy this mall. Mall is very much welcoming the rich to poor. Cons : gentlemen, your wife can spend it all in an a few hours even if you have a million dollar credit card. So be careful. 😂
  • The Dubai Mall Best in the Middle East may be in the best in the while world. Amazing place to visit, I've ever seen in my life. It is really very big and has showroom of almost every international brand. Many attractions, shopping centers, Big range of stores and a good food court are located inside this mall. I saw tourists from different parts of the world here celebrating their vacations. Whole mall was nicely cleaned and maintained. I really appreciate mall administration for this. The staff of almost every shop was polite and helpful. Also, proper signboards were placed throughout the mall, which was very helpful for tourists like us. Good parking facility and the mall is very easy to navigate.
  • Absolutely, positively the best mall I've EVER been to... Every single high fashion designer store you can think of. I've been there twice for 3 hours and STILL haven't seen the whole mall. Equipped with an Aquarium, skating rink, and amazing dancing fountain. I've yet to see all the shops this mall has to offer. A MUST SEE if you are visiting or a resident of Dubai. Too many shops to list. I'm 100% going again and again.
  • Best mall in the world! My wife and I love mall walking wherever we go. We have been to many cities around the world and seen the best malls from each. Dubai mall is the most amazing mall we’ve ever been in. It is absolutely massive with so much to do and see. There is an aquarium, an incredible dancing fountain, an indoor waterfall. It is like no other mall on earth. Incredible!
  • This is a fabulous place to visit. Here it is better to be prepared for a long stay for there are many shops, attractions, and food. This is a busy mall, so it should be taken into consideration that it can be very crowded Thursday and Friday night. If you are here to have fun and spend some money, this is the place to go for that  huge and beautifully designed mall. Big range of stores and a good food court. Definitely a must see when you are in Dubai. The stores are for every price range and there are a lot of them.Some of the stores are expensive designer stores such as Tiffany's but also stores like Zara that are not expensive.
