5 Best Malls in Dubai!

5. Ibn Battuta Mall

Inspired by the Moroccan explorer Ibn Battuta, the Ibn Battuta Mall is considered the largest themed mall in the world. Shopping becomes an adventure here, with six distinct retail courts waiting to be discovered and explored. Anchor stores include Debenhams, Geant, Marks & Spencer, Sharaf DG, and Decathlon.

4. Dubai Outlet Mall

Opened in 2007. This mall – with brands such as Coach and Fred Perry – houses approximately 240 stores, all with up to 90 percent off. Bear in mind, though, that little is from the current season. Driving away from the skyscrapers and towards the barren land for around 30 minutes will pay off as, like a mirage, the Dubai Outlet Mall will appear before you: a huge warehouse, housing over 800 of the world’s top fashion brands, celebrated perfumes and one-off gems. As long as you’re not too proud to wear last season’s goods, you’ll have an absolute field day here. There’s a Chuck E Cheese to keep the family entertained too.

3. Dubai Festival City Mall 

One of the largest malls in Dubai with 205,000 square meters and undergoing a Dhs1.5billion expansion, its size is equivalent to a football pitch. There are plans to increase the place – which is the only mall located on the banks of the historic creek – to 230,000 square meters with 420 outlets. Right now shoppers head there for Ikea, the largest Aldo store on the planet and the only Mint Velvet outside the UK. It’s the go-to choice for people staying at the Intercontinental Hotel and Crowne Plaza which it is attached to.
