Mall of the Emirates
A must-see destination on any trip to Dubai is a place that's much more than just a mall – it's the world's premier shopping resort. Mall of the Emirates is a vast, multi-level complex containing a vast array of leisure, lifestyle and dining opportunities – as well as more than 560 international retail brands. A virtual city within a city, this is a place that could keep you and your family entertained for days.
As soon as it opened back in 2005, Mall of the Emirates was crowned the world's leading new shopping mall at the World Travel Awards in London – and it's easy to see why. With its prime location at interchange four of Sheikh Zayed Road, Mall of the Emirates stands as a thriving centre of activity, culture and entertainment, family-friendly and designed to impress and inspire.
Step into the Mall of the Emirates Fashion Dome and Via Rodeo areas and you will come face-to-face with scores of the world's leading fashion powerhouses – an exceptional offer of boutique fashion excellence which is unrivalled. Elsewhere, you will find an incredible array of stores within the mall, catering to just about all conceivable tastes and needs. From stylish furniture to cutting-edge electronics, from fine jewellery to children's toys, and from educational books to eye-catching handbags – whatever you're looking for, Mall of the Emirates is the place to browse and buy.
Shopping, however, is only the start of the Mall of the Emirates experience. The extensive leisure opportunities within the mall include its Magic Planet family entertainment area, and a huge multiplex cinema complex showing the latest big-screen releases.
The mall is also the home of the Dubai Community Theatre and Arts Centre, a creative community hub containing a large auditorium for public performances, as well as an arts centre, galleries and even a music school. One of its undoubted highlights, however, has to be the incredible Ski Dubai – an indoor ski resort and winter sports park, which generates its own real snow. Mall of the Emirates, it's fair to say, is a long way from the average shopping mall.
All of this – along with a wealth of dining and refreshment opportunities – will always leave you wanting more, and planning your next trip to Mall of the Emirates.
