Top ways to experience The Dubai Mall
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.

We stayed at the JW Marriott Business Bay from November 21 to November 27 and we came here by their free shuttle to the mall before starting any tourism activities.

The mall is very big & unique and has a very large circular architecture at the top while entering. It is right next to the Burj Khalifa, which is very convenient to walk in the A/C to there especially on a hot day.

The unique parts of the mall involved an aquarium (which Mall of America in Minneapolis also has) but we did not visit it

Excellent mall full of water dance shows, aquarium, very nice restaurants and friendly people. Near to metro and you can walk from the mall without going outside which is good for hot seasons.

The place is huge, you can find anything here. What I like is you can enjoy the tall buildings, including burj khalifa. however the place is too big and too many people , I didn't stay long time there.
I thought the light show over the fountain would be longer, turned out after waiting almost an hour in order not to loose the spot (I got a very good spot), the show only lasted 5 minutes. Although it was said the show would be repeated, I left after the first show.

It is one of the biggest mall in the world.
This gaves you an idea of the number of shops, cafes and restaurants that might have.
The mall hosts also dubai aquarium and many restaurants that overlook the fountain.

I spent most of my days whilst visiting a friend in Dubai at the mall.
This place has everything from high end stores to high street brands. Also has a food court which was pretty decent and lots of coffee shops and restaurants.

This is a gigantic mall you can easily get lost in.
You need extremely comfortable shoes for vising this mall, as you'd walk kilometers.
Most of the shops are hghi-endish and the prices are expensive.

huge place to spend atleast 4 hours. should have enough strength to look at all the shops. only negative part there is no sitting area for visitors so one has to keep on moving constantly. all the biggest brands of the world right under one roof.

What a size of a place this mall is and has just about every shop you could think of too! Downside though is when the shops you really want to go to are at opposite sides, thankfully for 10Dhms you can jump in the mall taxi and it will whisk you to the shop that you are after... so worth the money when your feet get sore!

My only criticism is that the mall maps could be a bit better as a few times I got myself lost trying to get to the shops I wanted, hence eventually having to use the mall taxi.
