I wouldnt say it is more expensive but def on par with uk prices and in some occassions more, my husband said he thought CD/DVD/PC games were def more expensive in mall of the emirates.

jewelley is a bargain

but with dollar being so weak for shopping, New york has to be cheaper.

The JC Penney in Dubai is not a patch on the US ones.

Shopping a let down?

Well there is a huge selection - UK, Oz and US brands - but. for me thats not the attraction. These are all shops that you could find anywhere in the world.

Its more the shopping environment which makes Dubai special...malls are spectacularly designed (from tacky glory to palatial...Ibn Battuta, Mall of the Emirates, Wafi etc....think Vegas only without the louts
