Get that real Middle Eastern experience on the lower level, Some very nice shops in a manageable size Mall. It is also the start of one of the Hop on Hop Off buses.

I've been in most of the malls in dubai, however this is one that I hadn't got round to yet. My husband and I went with high expectations but they were soon dashed.

I like this Mall. It's architectural design (in the form of a pyramid) is more eye catching and interesting than the larger malls but essentially no matter how it's dressed it's still just a shopping centre and i doubt whether i'd have entered at all if it were not for my wife and i hunting down a post dinner ice-cream!...

Wafi City mall is accessible directly from the lobby of Raffles where we stayed. It isn't as large as some other shopping options but I find that a good thing! Its a relaxing few hours of shopping. Lots of eating options too.
