What are tourists and guests from all over the world looking for in Dubai? The New Wonderland of Shopaholics in The Desert Mirage! Sea and relaxation, adrenaline and entertainment, shopping or much more?There is nothing you can think of that you cannot find here in the city of dreams.Dubai offers its guests a rich excursion program. Here tourists are waiting for huge skyscrapers, magnificent fountains, luxury shopping centers and much more. One of the main attractions of the city is considered the unique shopping center called The Dubai Mall. Regardless of the fact that the prices here are quite high, the mall is very popular with travelers. Tourists come to the Dubai Mall not so much for shopping, but for entertainment.
What is unique about the mall?
The main distinguishing feature of this mall is its size. It is the largest mall in the world. But its main area is not occupied by shops. Here visitors will find a huge cinema with several cinema halls, and numerous cafes and restaurants, the largest amusement hall in the world, and even its own ice rink. In addition, the mall has a huge aquarium, the entrance to which is completely free. And next to the aquarium is a zoo where a large number of animals are represented. Thus, the uniqueness of the Dubai Mall is not only in its size but also in content.
The Dubai Mall has more than 1,200 stores. Therefore, you are unlikely to be able to visit all the stores in one day. That is why I recommend that visitors carefully examine the scheme of the shopping center before going shopping. It is worth noting that in the shopping center you can buy absolutely everything from food to furniture and building materials. A separate part is reserved for clothing stores, of which there are about 80.
When it comes to discounts, it can be noted that sales are arranged here all year round. However, the massive sales season, when discounts reach 70%, falls in January. Immediately after the end of the New Year holidays, shopping is in the greatest demand.
The construction of the country’s largest mall began in early 2004. The developer was Emaar Malls Group, a company specializing in the construction of shops and office buildings. Dubai Mall is the largest project of this organization. The construction of the shopping center lasted 4 years, and in 2008 the long-awaited opening of the world’s largest shopping center took place. Already at the time of opening, 600 stores operated here, but gradually their number increased, and currently, there are 1,200 stores in the center.
Sleepwalking in Paradise
Giant Dinosaur Skeleton
One of the main attractions that all visitors to the shopping center strive to see is the giant dinosaur skeleton, which reaches 7 meters in height and 25 meters in length. It is worth noting that this is not a layout, but the real diplodocus bones found in the USA. His age is more than 145 million years.
Another interesting place in the shopping center is a giant aquarium. It is worth noting that everyone can look at marine inhabitants for free. And you can walk through the tunnel and visit the zoo. This place attracts all visitors to the mall, but the aquarium is of most interest to children.
Any visitor must also see a huge cinema. The cost of admission is quite high. But there is a unique service in the cinema, which is not found in any other cinema in the world. For a fee, you can use the services of a waiter who will deliver the order directly to your chair. Also, anyone can order a pillow and a blanket, but still, this service is not in great demand. After all, people come to the cinema to watch a movie in a luxury atmosphere.
All season ice rink
It is also worth highlighting the large ice rink located in the mall. The cost of skiing is quite high, so there are not too many tourists at the rink. Basically, the Arabs themselves ride, for whom the ice rink is something unusual and interesting. A special design is installed above the skating rink, which provides snowfall from artificial snow. But they include it extremely rarely, only on New Year’s holidays, and on the days of any interesting events.
Amusement park for children in Dubai Mall
Also in the Dubai Mall, there is a large amusement park with 15 attractions and more than 150 slot machines. The largest sweets shop in the city works here, where you can buy dessert for every taste. And in the heart of the shopping center, there is a huge fountain, which is a kind of visiting card of the shopping center.
The Fashion Avenue gallery is located in this shopping center – 70 boutiques of elite brands and the goods here are sold at prices much lower than in other countries. The world’s largest indoor Gold Market is also located at Dubai Mall. A huge selection of beautiful and branded clothes for every taste and budget.
What to see nearby the Dubai Mall?
The world-famous Dubai Mall is located in the most prestigious area of the city. This is an easily recognizable building that adjoins another popular attraction of Dubai – the Burj Khalifa Tower. Thus, if you are going shopping in the mall, you can also take a walk along the famous skyscraper, go up to the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa, and explore the city from a great height.
