When in Dubai, you must visit the largest mall in area in the world. Most people are also likely to visit as you must come here to get to the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai fountains but there are many other things to see. This mall boasts a large aquarium, an ice skating rink, its own dinosaur skeleton (Diplodocidae found in Wyoming in 2008), two souks, A380 aircraft simulator and lots more. We enjoyed walking, window shopping and having lunch.

We visited the Mall of Dubai twice and still never made it thru the whole thing. They have every store and restaurant you can think of plus more. Wear comfortable walking shoes. You're going to need them. We took a break each time in Starbucks to use the WiFi with a purchase.

Sure there is a huge variety of stores but if you re traveling from the UK or the euro zone prices will either be the same or more expensive - since these are not local brands - than anywhere else. Maybe try the sales period to bag a bargain but I doubt it.
The Aquarium is fun though. Be prepared to walk. Avoid traveling by tube/ underground since the station is a good 15 min walk from the mall

Lovely modern mall. All the big stores and brands. Food court is excellent. Definitely worth the visiting and also connects to the Dubai Fountain
