  • Pros : best mall in the middle east or may be in the best in the whole world. Its a shopping heaven for brand savvy shoppers. Good parking facility and the mall is very easy to navigate. If you don't shop or spend anything, still you have a lot to see and enjoy there. Friendly staff and middle class don't need to activate their poor guy mode to enjoy this mall. Mall is very much welcoming the rich to poor. Cons : gentlemen, your wife can spend it all in an a few hours even if you have a million dollar credit card. So be careful. πŸ˜‚
  • The Dubai Mall Best in the Middle East may be in the best in the while world. Amazing place to visit, I've ever seen in my life. It is really very big and has showroom of almost every international brand. Many attractions, shopping centers, Big range of stores and a good food court are located inside this mall. I saw tourists from different parts of the world here celebrating their vacations. Whole mall was nicely cleaned and maintained. I really appreciate mall administration for this. The staff of almost every shop was polite and helpful. Also, proper signboards were placed throughout the mall, which was very helpful for tourists like us. Good parking facility and the mall is very easy to navigate.
