Shopping and Entertainment

Shopping centres take on a whole new definition in Dubai. Say goodbye to overcrowded, overpriced malls, and let yourself be taken in by the luxurious buildings, sprawling over huge parts of the city. Once you’ve found your bargains, window-shopped through sections of couture, and marvelled at the intricate architecture, wonderful themes, and impressive loyalty to the style of Arabian souks, discover the all-encompassing nature of Dubai’s shopping centres.

Chock full of entertainment venues, from skiing to cinemas, shopping centres are there for the whole family. Visit the aquarium and underwater zoo, or let the kids run wild at KidZania, watch a show, or have a go at belly dancing: all is possible within the confines of a mall.

If you’re tired of seeing the same shops and the same brands, hunt down the malls built to resemble traditional souks – or have a go at haggling in the souks themselves. From high fashion to the latest gadgets, Persian rugs and antique jewellery, there’s nothing you won’t find while shopping in Dubai.

Leaving the shopping centres themselves and heading out into some of Dubai’s districts, such as Bur Dubai and Deira is a great way to experience shopping as the locals do. Revel in the hustle and bustle of the narrow lanes, and have a go at haggling with vendors.

An entire day can be whiled away inside one of Dubai’s super malls: from activities for the whole family, to every shop you could imagine, to fine foods and dining, leave a large section of your itinerary free for what you might find through the malls’ doors!
