Top ways to experience The Dubai Mall
The area
Neighborhood: 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.

    Dubai mall
    Dubai mall is the largest mall in the world. As expected from the largest mall, it has shops for each brand one can think of. In addition, there are multiple attractions in the mall to keep families and kids occupied, such as dubai acqualrium, ice rink, kidzania, haunted house, dino fossil, waterfall etc. To be honest, one full day is less to explore the mall completely, but atleast budget 7 to 8 hours for the same.

    Allocate 1 Full Day to Explore This Shopping Mall!
    I visited Dubai for the first time in June 2023, I stayed at the Palace Downtown Hotel, located right next door to this mall. I walked into the Dubai Mall at 10am and spent the entire day in the mall, including going up to the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa! In the evening at 7pm, I had dinner at the Tribes Carnivore restaurant located on the 3rd floor of the Dubai Mall and they gave me a table located on their outdoor terrace. From here, I had the best views of the Dubai Fountain, which comes alive every 30 minutes from 6pm to 11pm daily. This mall is ENORMOUS and very clean and well-lit. If you come to Dubai for the first time, this mall should be high on your priority list for must-visit places in this city! The Dubai Aquarium, located inside this mall, is also a great attraction. There is a Chinatown inside this mall as well! The famous indoor waterfall with the silver divers is another unique attraction and great for taking photos for your Instagram account. This mall is really AMAZING!

    Stunning Mall
    I visited Dubai mall today, after an absence of 4 years. My visit was focused on the newly opened China town on the 1st floor, Opposite Ski Circuit. The town looks stunning and well-constructed. There is a spa, food court and fun stores. It is directly connected to Address Fountain Views hotel. It is worth a visit. I remained in the mall for the full day, strolling around and enjoying the biggest mall. You will find everything for the whole family. I had lunch at the famous Cheesecake factory. SEE photos

    Amazing Mall
    We heard a lot about the Dubai Mall and visited to see the site. The location is next to the Fountains and Burj Khalifa. The mall is enormous and has every store and a variety of cost as well. Tons of restaurants and activities. Family friendly with a lot of security and assistants to ensure people find their way. A must see and a must visit. We spent 4 hours there but could have spent 4 days.

    For us it was more 10,000 steps day 😂 Good place to past the time
    A huge mall like they say, easy to find stores and walk by. Many brands with updated collections. Even the aquarium is located in the mall. Get prepared to walk, my husband wanted to have Michelin star food, so that was one of the reasons we went first. The cheapest Michelin star restaurant available in china town, good bubble tea from kOI. Over all good place to past time

    Huge and Elaborate Shopping Mall
    The Dubai Mall is impressive in size and in appearance. Every shop imaginable can be found in this massive place. There are also a number of restaurants to choose from including casual and more upscale. It is also home to the Dubai Fountain and the Burj Khalifa. Also easily accessible from the Metro.

    Fun, gigantic mall next to Dubai Fountain
    This mall is huge and has everything, including an ice skating rink and an aquarium (with eagle rays, guitar fish, nursing shark, saw fish). It is next to Burj Khalifa, and overlooks part of the Dubai Fountain. Nice food options (including a food court), a Souk (in air conditioned comfort), lots of restaurants, lots of luxury goods, toy shops, children's activities, a waterfall, a Waitrose, movie theatres, Apple shop, Huawei shop and more... It's easy to get lost in here. The only thing is that it gets kind of crowded by 11 am.. There's also not a lot of seating.

    Lives up to the hype
    You can't go to Dubai and not go to Dubai Mall whether it's for shopping, food or leisure activities! It definitely lives up to the hype although a couple of pointers, especially for families with young kids: 1. It can get very busy in the food courts from around 7pm onwards so avoid eating at that time if you can. We had to change our food choice in some cases as the line to buy food was too long 2. Lifts are not as common as escalators so if you have a stroller, make sure you know where the lifts are or be prepared to fold the stroller to go on escalators.

    The Mall of Dubai
    This is massive on scale if you can’t find want you want you must have everything from designer shops to giant aquariums. My advice would be to view the aquarium from the outside as you can see has much from there without paying. Also the Burj Kalifa light show is amazing with the water fountain light show on the lake at the bottom of the tower this is every half hour from 6pm to 11pm every evening and is totally free . One tip to watch out for if traveling home by taxi watch out for the black cab touts , they will try and get you into one and charge you at least 3 times for the same journey as a normal cab.

    Fabulous.
    The list of what you can do here is long and you can't explore the whole of this mall in a day. From shopping to dining, movies to gaming, attraction to site seeing, pictures, music and many more. Got tired a point in time and sat down on the fall 🤣. The dancing water was fun and the view of the tallest building was amazing.

As I stepped into Dubai Mall, the largest shopping mall in the world, I was immediately struck by its sheer scale and grandeur. The massive atrium ceilings, sparkling chandeliers, and gleaming marble floors set the tone for an unparalleled shopping experience. Located in the heart of Dubai, this iconic mall is a must-visit destination for shopaholics, foodies, and entertainment enthusiasts alike.

This place is huge and amazing!

Cannot forget the fountain show and boat cruise around the burj khalifa. There is many shops that are dirt cheap and many expensive ones too as expected. Everyone is so nice and respectful in Dubai

Fabulous place to visit. Gorgeous waterfall, bones of a Diplodocus, and fabulous artwork. Shops are very nice. Some very posh shops which are lovely to even look around in.

Not so intuitive to navigate the huge mall, even to get to Burj Khalifa entry was a trouble while I had imagined it to be prime attraction, totally missing to put navigation map aids at every certain point.

Walking into Dubai Mall, I felt like I had stepped into another world. The sheer scale of the place is mind-boggling; it's more like a city than a shopping center. As I wandered through its vast corridors, each turn seemed to reveal something even more impressive than the last.
