Shopping centers are in any large city and, as a rule, they are not considered as the city sights, but the Dubai Mall is an exception. You can visit this world`s largest shopping and entertainment center not only to buy something but also to have a pleasant time in a good environment.
Dubai Mall is located at the foot of the world`s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. It is there that the main sights of Dubai are concentrated, which are better to visit in the evening: the Dubai Fountain, the Dubai Aquarium, and the Observation Deck of the Burj Khalifa as well as numerous restaurants around the musical fountain. There are always a lot of people: both tourists and the natives.
Besides a great number of shopping areas, the Dubai Mall has the world`s largest aquarium, the Fashion Island where there are located several dozens of boutiques belonging to the most famous brands, 22 movie theatres, the world`s largest gold market, and a skating rink.
You should come there after 6 p.m., when the performances of the Dubai Fountain take place every 30 minutes. In the evening it will be pleasant to sit at street cafes when the heat abates and comes the most pleasant time for tourists in Dubai.
