Currently the worlds largest mall; The Dubai Mall is the region’s premier shopping, lifestyle and entertainment destination. With the number of stores totalling more than 1,200 stores The Dubai Mall was determined to revolutionise the modern shopping experience all in a building totalling 440,000 sq ft over four floors. Incorporating Dubai’s first Olympic-size ice rink, and the flagship 22-screen Reel Cinemas at The Dubai Mall which is the first Megaplex developed and operated by the company; not to mention a huge SEGA republic.
Inset in the mall is an aquarium like no other, housing an impressive 33,000 aquatic animals and carrying over 10 million litres of water you can understand why this centrepiece is a world record holder for the largest in its class.
There is a store for everyone from fashion to boutiques, from the sports and leisure industry to nearly 20 specialised sweet and confectionary stores including the 10,000 sq ft Candilicious store. Whole wings of the building are given over to specialised areas such as High End Fashion brands and Watches. This mall has everything including watches and jewellery stores totalling over 40 stores selling Tag Heuer to Rolex, Omega to Mont Blanc, although time will pass quickly once in this mall as you lose yourself in such an immense shopping area. This venue also houses Dubai’s largest department store Galeries Lafayette which is Frances most famous store and will soon house an even larger store from the US, Bloomingdales due to open late 2010; department stores from the UK such as Debenhams and other well know UK brands such as Next, M&S, Topshop and Burton.
Its almost like shopping in New York, London, Paris & Rome all under one roof.
If you get hungry whilst shopping, and you fancy a bite to eat, there are over 150 food outlets to choose from.
