The Dubai Mall is more than just a shopping centre. Other than being enormous and spanning a total of 12 million square feet, with 200 retail outlets, two anchor department stores and more than 200 places to eat and drink, there are also plenty of other things to do.
If you tire of shopping, check out the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo. This magnificent centrepiece holds 10 million litres of water and showcases a spectacular collection of marine animals, including otters, piranha, penguins, crocodiles and sand tiger sharks. If you’re in the mood for some physical activity, take a skate around the Dubai Ice Rink.
Insider Tip: Book ahead for a ringside view of the Dubai Fountains. After shopping, grab a bite to eat and experience the world-record-breaking, 140-metre-high choreographed water jets.
