Discover Shopping Malls United Arab Emirates

The emirate is the self-proclaimed shopping capital of the Middle-East. It attracts both its rich neighbours and tourists from around the world, with great duty free deals in its huge shopping temples (Mall of the Emirates, Dubai Mall, etc, the latter being the biggest in Dubai at over 200,000m²). They are veritable cities within a city (you can drive in an electric car through the walkways with famous names), where many brands are represented (sometimes more than 500). Whether you are looking for fashion items, household appliances or high-tech products (computers, televisions, mobile phones, etc), you'll be spoilt for choice with these exceptionally large shops, which are often several hundred m². The shopping centres, which are fully air-conditioned and open until late (usually 10:00pm), compete all year round in terms of entertainment to attract and amuse visitors. Some attractions have even become symbols of the destination, such as Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates, and the gigantic aquarium at the Dubai Mall, where diving with sharks promises a lot of excitement. Every year in January, the excitement reaches new heights with the "Shopping Festival", a month-long event where shopping centres take part in events (concerts, fireworks, etc) to attract transfixed shoppers. Try o remember to book your hotels in advance, as these peak times coincide with the mildest part of the year. Some of the hotels even have direct access, which is very convenient!
