Ibn Battuta Mall

Named after the 14th-century Moroccan explorer, the Ibn Battuta mall is themed around world travel, with six separate shopping courts reflecting different regions of the world. There are more than 400 outlets to explore, so take your pick from designer labels, beauty brands, accessories and far more besides. Between shopping, choose from a generous selection of restaurants, including a food court with gourmet options from all over the world. 


Dubai Mall

Dubai Mall, home to the Dubai Shopping Festival, is one of the world’s largest shopping centres, with over 1,300 stores to choose from. Pride of place is the mall’s Fashion Avenue, where the spotlight is on luxury brands and elaborate window displays. For a break between shopping, the mall has an impressive selection of activities on offer. Why not pop into the in-house aquarium, the ice rink, or even the newly opened VR Park, with its fully-immersive virtual reality experience?


Wafi Mall

The Wafi Mall is the perfect destination mall for those seeking a high-end shopping experience. Beyond the 250 luxury stores, there’s a tempting selection of fine dining options to choose from. Refuel in Wafi Gourmet, one of the city’s best Lebanese restaurants, or wind down at Seville’s, serving an indulgent selection of Spanish-inspired dishes. 


Dubai Outlet Mall

Home to 240 stores selling over 1,200 brands, the Dubai Outlet Mall specialises in discounts of up to 90%. With big name brands, from Burberry to Yves Saint Laurent – and everything from Crocs to Scotch & Soda in between – it’s not surprising that it has become one of Dubai’s biggest shopping hits.


Mall of the Emirates

With an indoor ski slope, a multi-screen cinema complex and a bowling alley, the Mall of the Emirates is famous for far more than shopping. That said, there are hundreds of shops here to satisfy every taste. Plus, there’s an impressive choice of restaurants, ensuring shoppers can refresh and refuel as they go.
