Three floors of different shops with affordable prices. we have some shops alike back in jeddah but i was suprised to see the different stuff. it was a good location mall next to my hotel so i can drop my bags every now and then continue shopping.

It is like cosmopolitan town full of expats from all around the world. It is always full of people and the food court is like a jungle. I would recommend to avoid any malls in Deira.

One of the biggest markets Dubai has 2 markets - Deria and Kamara. Be prepared to walk as the market is big and spaced out, was very hot when we went this month (August) 42°.

Nothing much to see in the mall, except for commercial stores. If you're used to the American malls, then this is just another. Would not recommend it if you're coming from out-of-town.

Back in 1998 when I first visited this mall, Deira City was the place to be in Dubai, the first of the really large shopping malls. It's still good today for shopping, with a large Carrefour for regular shopping, but the ambience is now getting a little tired. For the glitz you need to go elsewhere.

We went to this mall twice to stock up on food while staying in the Flora Park Apartment Hotel --- about 1 block away. There is a huge grocery store (Carrefour) there with fresh fruits & vegetables, a hot food/deli section, and everything else a normal grocery store would have. We were so happy to see lots of USA goodies... More

I can say all what you need in one place, clothes, laptops, mobiles phones, perfums, acssesories, make up for ladies, however Carrfour super market is inside that shopping mall as after shopping you can enter Carrfour and buy your food, as you can also find some shops with reasonable prices, and as its so huge amount of shops so you...

this very place is the exact place for shopping while relaxing in Dubai. Don't miss the opportunity to check this place out. There is a bus every morning that takes you to Deira city center from most hotels.

One of the first major mall in Dubai. Easy access. Big with average brands. Everything you need is here including cinema , children's play area, food court. I call it the smart mall - not cumbersome , overwhelming . Just right!!
