Dubai Meanderings: Malling Around

The malls in Dubai are what the locals do, especially on a very hot summer day.  Fortunately for us it was not very hot, but we did have the time to spend just walking around these very impressive shopping complexes.  By the end of our tour, we had managed to visit nine malls …

Deira City Centre (day 1)
Burjuman Centre (day 2)
Dubai Festival City Mall (day 3)
Dubai Mall (day 4)
Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi (day 5)
Dubai Marina Mall (day 5)
Ibn Battuta Mall (day 6)
Mall of the Emirates (day 6)
Souk Madinat Jumeirah (day 7)

The malls are generally open from 10:00am – midnight, and some open as late as 1:00am on Thursday and Friday nights!  The malls are chockfull of retailers from around the world and restaurants such as the Cheesecake Factory, TGI Fridays, Chili’s, Baja Fresh, Shake Shack, Habit Burger and much more.  Our favorite mall was the Ibn Battuta Mall, which is the world’s largest themed mall and we also really enjoyed the Dubai Mall because of its fountain show…
