The sales oh the sales. In December its worth visiting this mall as almost every store has a sale. I had been here in October this year and there were no sales so it was not a pleasure to shop.The sales are 50-70percent off and my favourite store are the GAP store, Hanayen, Nine West, Guess and Victoria Secret

It always takes me hours to navigate this mall, and we always leave with sore feet, and are very tired! Sure, some things are nice and interesting, but I prefer Mall of the Emirates

One word.. AMAZING! Period!

Dubai Mall compares comfortable with some of the greatest malls around the world. It offers cuisine from around the globe, shopping from London, Paris, New York, San Francisco and more!

You can dine cafe, pavement, fast food, rush through or restaurant - the choices are plenty

The shopping is great too with most leading international brands occupying significant rentals. And just as you think you have finished a section... turn the corner to find another wing of this enormous behemoth of a mall. And just when you finished walking it... look up - there's another 4 floors waiting to be explored!!!

WOW!

And if that is not enough... try the Oceanarium / Aquarium. There are no words...

Then there is another wing with the souks and other marketplaces. BARGAINS GALORE! Take a whole morning for this...

Outside to the North East is a manmade waterfront where you can eat your take-aways if you want to sit outside. It is surrounded by hotels, offices and the Mall. In the evening there are coloured dancing fountains that provide additional entertainment. This is also spectacular

The taxi service is so sleek, and operates 24/7. All taxis are the same make of vehicle and painted the same colour! Except the roof. Last I checked there were 4 taxi operating companies, and their fleets are identified by the colour of the taxi's roof. Outside the main entrance to the right is a large taxi terminus with taxis coming in and leaving like flies around a bone! The "queue operators" (for want of a description) are very organised, know which taxis are going where, knows what you ask for and have a reasonable good English to direct you with other queries, thus transport is organised

TIP : if you are visiting the Burj Khalifa tower, the entrance is inside the mall...

I love shopping so my destination is Dubai Mall, the biggest, the coolest and the greatest mall in the world. You can find absolutely everything in it.

Ice rink, Golden Souq, Restaurants, Cinema, kids playing level, great fountains and many more, please prepare to spend your all day in it.

DO IT, YOU WILL LOVE IT.

the mall offers so much to do. your spoilt for choice in every department!

only downfall is its too big and if your looking for a certain shop it can take you a while too get to. it can be tiring walking around the whole mall so if you want something specific just ask the information desk, they know everything!
