5 Exciting Leisure Activities at Dubai Mall

As the world's largest shopping mall and entertainment store, there are more than a few opportunities to indulge in some retail therapy at the Dubai Mall. But if shopping is not your bag, there are a whole host of other activities on offer there.

Burj Khalifa

Standing at 830 meters, Burj Khalifa is the planet's tallest skyscraper. Visitors are able to ascend the tower and get an unbeatable view.

SEGA Republic

It's a theme park inside the mall!

Fear of Flying

Originally designed to help people conquer their fear of flying, this flight simulator can also be great fun for pretending to fly the high skies.

Dubai Fountain

With water shooting 150 meters into the air, these fountains - located just outside Dubai Mall - are a true sight to behold.

Ice Skating

If you crave a break from a full day of shopping, there's an ice rink there to provide a cool escape!

Dubai Mall: Our Tips

Strategical shopping

If you're a bargain hunter, the best time for deals at Dubai Mall is right after the holiday season. If you prefer less crowds and want to take your time window shopping then plan your visit for another time of year!

How many stores are in the Mall?

There are more than 1,200 different stores - some unique to Dubai, some from other parts of the world, such as London's Harrods. Enjoy and go wild!

Eating options

There are some food courts in the Dubai Mall, but no restaurants - if you fancy a sit-down meal then head over to its' sister mall, Souk Al Bahar, to grab a bite.

Can I get a good view of the city from the Mall?

The best view over the city is indisputably from the Burj Khalifa tour, easily accessible from the Dubai Mall.

What People Are Saying About Dubai Mall

Really great experience highly recommend it

It was a lovely 30 min very peaceful and relaxing, wonderful to see the area from the water and really special experience to watch the fountains from that angle! Staff were friendly and helpful, boat wasn't crowded. Highly recommend it

had a great time will definitely do another tour next time

The tour great and we got to see a lot of the nice places in Dubai. I think i would choose an earlier one next time so wouldn't be wandering around in the dark trying to take photos. I met some nice people and we had a good tour guide.

Helpful, informative driver, who also drove carefully.

Our driver was almost a guide, as he took us to many of the sights we may have found difficult to find without him. His driving was also careful, something some of the drivers we have used, are not. They left us fearing for our lives in the manic Dubai traffic, but this one was careful and considerate to us as nervous Europeans too! The tour took in many places which we had asked to visit, like Dubai creek, gold souk and the Burj Halifa. Highly recommend this driver especially if you want to preserve your life!

An experience you'll never forget in a hurry!!

My girlfriend and I turned up to this place that looked like a building site but it was well sign posted so we found the reception area straight away! When we arrived there was a power shortage so there was no air con! It was boiling. The lady behind the counter was very helpful and accommodating offing us water and still continuing to smile even though the heat was unbearable! Our flight was a at 9 and we had to go through some safety features with a guy who was very nice he even put seats outside in the shade for us as he could see we were hot! The flight was incredible with each area being explained in detail with a smooth take off and landing it put my girlfriend at ease as she's not really up for anything crazy! We got back and we had pictures taken and we had a look and the guys put them on a stick for us and it only cost 150aed including the memory stick! As we went to leave they saw we didn't have a car and offered us a lift to the nearest mall to get a taxi! BOOK THIS!!!!!

Great way to see main attractions of Dubai

We thoroughly enjoyed our day tour of Dubai. Our guide Abdullah was a joy to be with. He was knowledgeable, funny and nothing was too much trouble for him. It was a great way to see most of what Dubai has to offer which then allowed us to decide where we would like to go back and see/explore in more detail. The price was excellent value. We would definitely recommend this tour, especially to people who are only in Dubai for the day.
