  • An amazing place that I feel is worth seeing. Outside the vast stores of the impression they do sheikhs przechadzający. Well, the most important of course is the Dubai ski connected to the mall. Outdoors + 40 c and in the middle of the minus and the typical image of winter. MUST SEE!

  • Okay so, if you travel all the way to Dubai to spend your time inside a building, well, this is a great place for you to be. Actually, it's the best place you could be at any given time, again, if prefer to stay indoors. Dedicate a day or at least half a day for this mall, otherwise you're just not getting the full experience. Why go there? Well, you go there to eat, there are practically unlimited choices for you to choose from for any meal of the day. You go there to shop, all shops are categorized into areas based on type of product so if you're looking for electronics; everything will be in the same place. The mall is huge so this is a very important point. You go there to watch movies, Reel cinema is huge and you'll probably find the latest movies there. You also go there to visit the magnificent aquarium, which requires entrance fee but you can still take good pictures and show your kids the fish tank from outside for free! If you have kids, its obvious you'll need to check the miniature theme park but if you wanna snow ski then you'll have to go to Mall of the Emirates for that. Don't worry about parking here but indeed worry about taxis because the line for taxi can be really long. 30 minutes long.
  • This mall is amazing! It has everything you could possibly want all in one place. It's an incredibly gigantic mall so it may take a few days to cover every inch if that's what you want to do. If you aren't familiar with this place a map is recommended. You can easily get lost. Every time I visit Dubai I go here bc I always have a new place to discover. The food options are divine and the shopping choices are top notch.
  • Not only shopping experience but full fun, entertainment, sports, arts and dining. A complete experience whatever the different purpose you will find it there, with easy transportation access, and accommodations. The unique view for Tallest tower int he world, biggest dancing fountain and largest aquarium in the world. Cannot hold my breath.
  • The biggest mall in the world. You can find anything and everything here. Great place to bring your kids as there are so many activities for them to do. So many restaurants for everyone from Asian food to Italian, Mexican, Arabic and international food. Great place for dinner with a view of the dancing fountain from 6pm. It's also nice to just come for a stroll, window shopping and take pretty photos
  • An amazing place that takes a full day to go through with fascinating shops ad great food hall. The Mall also has an aquarium, some nice restaurants, heaps of water features and a water/light show including a laser light show on the worlds tallest building. Everyone speaks English - shps a little expensive.
