“Huge shopping mall”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Been to Dubai mall recently and was able to take advantage of the aquarium as well. Good concept, numerous shops, varied foodcourt. Overall very good
. The only thing was striked me is that there are no chairs or should i term it as "resting places" in the mall. the only chairs available are the ones in the food court. I believe for such a big mall at frequent distances, chairs/benches should be put so that people can rest a little bit.

“Tie it in with a visit to the Burj Khalifa and the dancing fountains.”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

It is very big and a lot of the shops are expensive. Check out the cars that are parked out front! Shopaholics will love it. I visited with my girlfriend and 6 year old daughter and we tied it in with a visit to the Burj Kahlifa and Dancing Fountains. All together they make for a great day out.

“Too Huge and Very Expansive”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Yes, it is a must visit place in Dubai because of its iconic value; its huge, well maintained, good décor, nice cool temperature but its too tiring specially if kids are accompanying you and the mall is very expansive. Food Court is nice with lots of varieties and aquarium is a must to do thing. Go for a short time for window shopping (depends how much stamina you have), get few snaps and for real shopping proceed to Deira City Centre Mall.

“Massive shopping centre!! ”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

The Dubai Mall is absolutely humongous and can get lost in there! There are plenty of shops including designer brands. Place is very clean. Plenty of restrooms throughout the mall. The prices are not necessarily cheap. They are either the same or a bit more expensive than uk. There are lots of food places throughout the food courts offering a wide range of foods. There is also a ice rink inside!

“Largest shopping Mall in the world”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

An unbelievable day out in a Mall. you have to go there to even imagine how big it is. we went for the aquarium which turned out to be the biggest I have ever seen, with an under water zoo and glass bottom boats, it was fantastic, you would not believe you were on a shopping mall. There is also an Olympic size ice skating rink, costs about £10 per person, the girls went on this for about 1.5 hours. There is also an indoor cinema and theme park. There are more shops than I even thought possible. seeing is believing. some things cheaper due to tax.
