Dubai is the only city in the world that takes shopping malls seriously. Not only do worldwide companies rush to Dubai, but customers from all over the Middle East and beyond come to marvel at the grandiosity and beauty of the city’s shopping malls.

Dubai Mall

The Dubai Mall is a massive retail, leisure, and entertainment complex located in the centre of downtown Dubai. With a total internal floor area of 5.9 million square feet, it is the world’s largest and most frequented shopping mall. More than 80 million people visited the mall’s 1,200+ retail outlets in 2014. Alexander McQueen, Valentino, Gucci, Chanel, and Ralph Lauren are all flagship labels.

If shopping isn’t enough, Dubai Mall also houses Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, one of the world’s largest aquariums and aquatic zoos, replete with a 270-degree walk-through tunnel for a really immersive deep-sea experience.

Mall of the Emirates

The Mall of the Emirates, also known as the world’s first shopping resort, contains a staggering 2.4 million square feet of retail space. Not only does it have 630 high-end companies, but the mall’s Fashion Dome and Luxury Wing feature fashion designers from all over the world. Boutique 1, Centrepoint, Forever 21, Kate Spade New York, DKNY, and an Apple shop are among the tenants.

When you’ve had your fill of shopping, there’s still plenty to do at the Mall of the Emirates. At Magic Planet, a family theme park, you may play games and be delighted, or visit Ski Dubai, a renowned indoor ski resort, for a day of skiing or snowboarding, tobogganing, and playing with the penguins.


At the heart of Bur Dubai, the city’s commercial and heritage quarter, BurJuman offers a good mix of luxury fashion brands and well-known labels. BurJuman, like many other malls in Dubai, has a strong emphasis on entertainment and lifestyle choices, with its 14-screen Vox Cinemas being the most recent addition. Louis Vuitton, Bvlgari, H&M, Charles & Keith, and Burberry are among the stores in BurJuman.
