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

    1. 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.

  • 2. SEGA Republic

    It's a theme park inside the mall!

  • 3. 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

    4. 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

    5. Ice Skating

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

Planning Your Visit

  • 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.

It was the best jet ski experience we have ever had! From the moment we arrived, both hosts were welcoming and friendly and let us know that we were going to have a great time. They took pictures for us and made us feel comfortable. The ride itself was really amazing and our instructor Kareem made it the best experience possible. He was very attentive, relaxed and encouraging. We all said that it was the best experience we had throughout the holiday and will definitely come back to Kareem when we return to Dubai.

The Dubai city tour was great, we had the privilege of experiencing the tour without any other tourists. Our tour guide Ahmat was very knowledgeable and friendly. You can tell that he really enjoys his job. We got to see so many places that would have taken quite some time to see on our own. Definitely very beneficial to have a guide alongside with you explaining Dubai’s incredible history and traditions. Would do again!

I had one off the best experience in my life , just arrived in duabi and was met with rizwan who is a absolute outstanding tour guide. He looked after me and my family with great and made us feel really welcomed in dubai. I hope you can pass this message on to the driver and thank him for his great service he provided.

Great day with Ahmed and Jaqoob. We never would have been able to see so much on our own. Having a driver made everything so much easier. They were both extremely friendly, courteous and professional and knew lots about the city. It was a long day, but worth it. We especially loved walking around the Dubai Marina.

Had a great couple of hours on the bus with a Fantastic and very knowledgable Tour guide. It was great doing this the day we arrived as gave us an understanding of where everything was for the rest of the trip. My 11 year old daughter said it was the best tour bus she had been on so that says a lot
