Went in the evening, so as to time it with the fountain show. It was still very busy and after gaining access from the metro station, it did take us an age to find an exit, to get outside.
It is a huge mall, and unlike others we’ve been to, it is sensibly laid out, grouping relevant shops together (cosmetics, perfumes, high-end fashion etc).
Some things are ridiculously priced (with UK exchange rate), but then I guess if you’re shopping in the Dubai Mall - you probably don’t care about the price of things…
Well worth a visit, even for the experience.
