The Review

  • The Good

    When it comes to breaking world records, Dubai has got it covered. Recognised by Guinness as the largest shopping centre in the world, The Dubai Mall not only accommodates shopaholics across its 1,200 stores, but also caters to families with attractions like an underwater zoo, cinema screens, indoor ice rink and the world's largest dancing fountains.

    Fashionistas, you’re not forgotten. Pay a visit to the mall’s Fashion Avenue that spans across 444,000 square feet and is a true haven to haute couture. You’ll even find a separate entrance welcoming you to the boutiques of some of the world’s most sought after designers.

    Grabbing a mocktail in the outdoor area by the fountains is a great way to escape the bustling masses, especially in cooler winter months. For those with wandering kids, we recommend grabbing a couple complimentary tracking bracelets at any guest service desk.

    If you’re looking for some quality ‘me-time’, head to the Fashion Avenue where you’ll find a 5* shopping experience with its’ royal purple and white carpets, comfy plush seating and countless couture boutiques.

  • The Bad
    The Dubai Mall is a bit of a maze and can get quite disorientating. If you're not a big walker, we advise you take regular breaks and keep checking the interactive maps. Or take a break in the Dubai Mall Cinema.

    Metro users, be warned; the station is around 15-minutes from the mall on foot - but it's air-conditioned. Parking can be a nightmare on weekends, especially in malls in Dubai. You'd think that it wouldn't be so bad since there are over 14,000 parking spaces. Well, think again.
  • The Tips
    If you want to get your shopping done without getting stuck in long queues, then avoid going weekends and weeknights. The Dubai Mall offers free wi-fi; just log in and you’re good to go.
