Dubai: The Shopping Mecca

Dubai: The shopping Mecca

From traditional souks to ultra-modern malls, Dubai is bursting with shopping destinations, if you know where to look. Here are a few places that you shouldn’t miss in Dubai if you are a shopaholic:

1. The Dubai Mall
The Dubai Mall is the largest destination for leisure, shopping, and entertainment in Dubai. It should be the first stop on your list. It has over thousand stores and is home to all the biggest brands in the world.
The mall also offers plenty of options for entertainment. You can have fun at the Dubai Aquarium and the SEGA Republic indoor theme park. Dubai mall also has an ice rink. And if you find yourself hungry, you can recharge yourself at the food court that caters to every taste bud.

2. Mall of the Emirates
This is another big name on the Dubai shopping scene. It houses more than 700 shops that include department stores including Debenhams and Harvey Nichols. Apart from shopping, another biggest attraction of this mall is the SkiDubai. This is the most renowned indoor ski slope.
This snowy wonderland has got an 85-metre high mountain that has 5 runs along with a Snow Park and other attractions. You will even find a group of penguins that live in their own enclosure.

3. The Souks
Dubai might be the ultra-modern city with sprawling malls and skyscrapers but it hasn’t forgotten its Arabic heritage. And if you want to experience the enchantment of the traditional world of Arabic spices and silks, then head straight to the souks.
Located just on the banks of the Dubai Creek, you will be welcomed by a whiff of aromatic spices, clouds of smoke rising from frankincense, and the noise emanating from the crowded shops. The gold souk is also located there where you can buy authentic gold jewellery. The textile souk is just 2-minutes walk away from the gold souk where you will get exquisite Arabic textile and silk.

4. Wafi Mall
Located in a complex that resembles the Egyptian pyramid, the Wafi mall hosts hundreds of upscale shops and lifestyle stores. This mall is also home to the Khan Murjan that sells exclusive Arabic wares. These are best for souvenirs and gift items.
If you are visiting Dubai in September, then you can witness the Taste of Wafi festival here at the mall. You can explore the stalls selling gourmet cuisine. During your shopping spree at Wafi Mall, you can even take a hunger-break and visit the Pyramid area located just adjacent to the mall. Here you will find restaurants selling a wide variety of international and local cuisine.
