Dubai Mall - The Ultimate Halting Point for Shopaholics

March 23, 2014

The first thing that comes to the mind when we talk of Dubai is the sky-high buildings, sky scrapers, large malls, big hotels and shopper stalls. There is not a single thing that you will miss in Dubai, and for shopping freaks like me it is more like a holy place.

I was there at Dubai with four of my friends who love fun and liveliness as much as I do. After a thrilling day at the Wild Wadi Water Pater Park the previous day, we had decided to move ahead with our journey by a visit to the Dubai Mall. I had heard a lot about the Dubai Mall, which is known to be an ultimate point for fun, movies, restaurants, pubs, discotheques and of course, shops.

Dubai Mall is the largest mall of the world. In Mumbai, I was truly elated with the gigantic size of the In-orbit Mall, but this was much bigger in size than the In-orbit Mall in Mumbai. The Dubai Mall is a large shopping and movie complex, which was opened up for business related activities in the year 2008.

There are more than 12,000 retail outlets of a number of branded apparels, shoes stores, gadgets and equipment stores. On an average, a hefty mass of 750,000 shoppers accumulate at the mall daily for shopping and dining purpose. We could see the KidZania, which is a family entertainment and education center for both children and grownups. There is the water front aquarium, Gold Soug, cinema complex with 22 audis and a dernier cri dedicated area as well - all you would find under a single roof.

The mall is spread across a vast landscape of 13 million square feet and it also houses a 250-room luxury hotel within itself! With more than 120 cafes and restaurants within the mall, you will never get bored inside it. The Mall of Dubai also has a under water aquarium, which hosts millions of fishes and is known to be a wonder in itself.

Be it for shopping or just for a casual stroll, Dubai mall will give it all to you. Again it was not possible to see the entire mall in a single day. Therefore, we tried to cover the majority of areas and enjoyed a movie on that day as well.
