Top sights in Dubai
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.
Standing at 830 meters, Burj Khalifa is the planet's tallest skyscraper. Visitors are able to ascend the tower and get an unbeatable view.
It's a theme park inside the mall!
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.
With water shooting 150 meters into the air, these fountains - located just outside Dubai Mall - are a true sight to behold.
If you crave a break from a full day of shopping, there's an ice rink there to provide a cool escape!
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!
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!
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.
The best view over the city is indisputably from the Burj Khalifa tour, easily accessible from the Dubai Mall.

What people are saying about Dubai Mall
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.
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.
Amazing show however could get it slightly cheaper if just show up and book on the spot as not just. They won’t accept any type of app or e-ticket and make you walk all the way round the mall to collect physical copies which meant we missed our show and had to wait for the next. After running around to collect we were all sweaty and exhausted so didn’t feel in the right state of mind to enjoy the experience unfortunately.
We chose this activity because we wanted to visit Dubai for one day to see its most important landmarks and get to know its history and culture a bit better. While our guide was friendly and tried his best to make the activity more enjoyable, we felt like it could have been organized much better and like there was much wasted potential.
Had a fabulous time with 2 other ladies in Dubai. Journey was smooth and the attractions great, were even though I would have preferred to have spent more time in Dubai. I highly recommend the company due Kanhaiya as he is polite and a person of high regards. Thank you Kanhaiya for making my day.
