5 Exciting Leisure Activities at Dubai Mall

As the world's largest shopping mall and entertainment store, there are more than a few opportunities to indulge in some retail therapy at the Dubai Mall. But if shopping is not your bag, there are a whole host of other activities on offer there.

Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa

Standing at 830 meters, Burj Khalifa is the planet's tallest skyscraper. Visitors are able to ascend the tower and get an unbeatable view.

SEGA Republic

It's a theme park inside the mall!

Fear of Flying

Originally designed to help people conquer their fear of flying, this flight simulator can also be great fun for pretending to fly the high skies.

Dubai Fountain

Dubai Fountain

With water shooting 150 meters into the air, these fountains - located just outside Dubai Mall - are a true sight to behold.

Our insider tips

Strategical shopping

If you're a bargain hunter, the best time for deals at Dubai Mall is right after the holiday season. If you prefer less crowds and want to take your time window shopping then plan your visit for another time of year!

How many stores are in the Mall?

There are more than 1,200 different stores - some unique to Dubai, some from other parts of the world, such as London's Harrods. Enjoy and go wild!

Eating options

There are some food courts in the Dubai Mall, but no restaurants - if you fancy a sit-down meal then head over to its' sister mall, Souk Al Bahar, to grab a bite.

Can I get a good view of the city from the Mall?

The best view over the city is indisputably from the Burj Khalifa tour, easily accessible from the Dubai Mall.

Great Knowledgable Guide & Friendly Driver

I was picked up from my hotel at the time stated without problem. I was on the tour alone with two other couples, but made to feel very welcome. On the way to Dubai from Abu Dhabi the guide points of things of interest. Unfortunately on the day there was a sandstorm in the area which made everything appear overcast. I cannot fault the tour, the guide or the driver. I would be tempted to visit different places in Dubai with the same tour company, as I wasn’t overstruck with the mosque photo stop or the Dubai Museum visit. I also didn’t like the Souq Markets as the shop owners are constantly pestering as you walk through, making it impossible to view. They will attempt to overcharge for their products. Dubai Mall was nice with plenty of options for lunch and views of the Burj Khalifa & the indoor aquarium. There is also a couple of lunch time showings of the fountains which are worth catching. Although I’m sure the evening show is much more spectacular, it’s a nice taster.

Amazing but short - we started at 10.45 and its finished 11.00

Overall it was amazing experience - we went on a ride around the lake about 10mph (16km/h), because we went at night time the lights and scene looked amazing plus it wasn’t too hot. Once the ride around was over the driver paused at a good location to watched the fountain display. That was stunning !!! The water and music were so in sync. I would definitely recommed it - they take your photos before you get on and once when your settled in the boat - with the option to purchase later (my sister loved the one on the boat so she purchased it for 75aed). I felt for 1 photo 75aed was expensive but thats your choice. The ride only lasted just over 15mins - i felt that was really short. But it was worth it. If price is your main area of hesistation you can watch the water display from the sides which is just as memorising.

Absolutely wonderful, great service, door to door pick up, perfect!

I had booked this trip from England, for my family and I. Amira our travel guide was fantastic speaking English and German, very impressive! We had a small tour of only 7 people so we felt very special. The shuttle picks you up from your hotel and drops you back there, which is perfect and so convenient. You see SO much, more or less of everything in Dubai, in such a short space of time. If you are in Dubai for a few days, it is great. Everything is explained in so much detail and you learn so much about how fantastic Dubai really is. Fantastic service and a fantastic activity. Thank you so much!

A great way to see the old and new Dubai in one day

This is a good way to see both the old Dubai and the new (modern) Dubai in one day. There are 3 different routes that together cover Dubai. The commentary provides useful information on the history and culture of Dubai and the UAE. Note that together the three routes take about 6 hours to get through without jumping on and off. At unexpected times of the day there can be traffic on some of the routes. There was live English commentary on one of the buses along the red route.

Absolutely stunning would definitely go again

The only problem was we didnt have a printable voucher although we had the booking number with name and page the man at the counter said we werent able to go and we needed to access our email to show home the ticket if we didnt have the wifi in the mall we wouldn’t have been able to go see the fountain even tho our ticket was paid for online The service at the top of burj could have been better
