A word of caution. This isn't a mall. This is a small country with enough attractions to keep you and the little ones busy for weeks. There's all your favorite shops and restaurants, as well as unique features such as the Dubai Aquarium and the Burj Khalifa tower. We always have a great time here. Just come early on weekends...

Very large, busy and noisy We visited twice the first time we had tickets for the aquarium and the second time in the evening to see the fountains. If you love shopping plenty of shops but didn't find anything special or different all the normal High Street stores. If you visit here via the metro it's a good 15-20 minute... More

I love this mall and could spend days there. The atmosphere is awesome as are the stores and amenities. I would suggest better air conditioning as it was hot often inside. Still a great place to visit and shop or eat or skate, etc. the list goes on.

The Dubai Mall is one of the largest malls in the world if not THE largest! We had planned to take two hours to view it all, well after our two hours we only saw a very, very small part of this huge mall. Since I had my two grand sons with me we decided to head first to the... More

Tried, & failed to shop here! Too many shops & we kept getting hassled by other tourists wanting to take photos of my 20 month old daughter - very weird! We enjoyed The Aquarium & Sega World though!

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
