Why the Dubai Mall Has Won All Those Awards!
On setting foot in Dubai Mall for the first time, someone very aptly exclaimed, 'Is this the 8th Emirate of UAE or just the Dubai shopping mall!' One of the largest malls in the world in total area, Dubai Mall has won five prestigious awards for Retail Excellence. With 1,200 stores, 250-room luxury hotel, 22 cinema screens, 120 Dubai Mall restaurants and cafes, Dubai Aquarium, Underwater Zoo, Dubai Ice Rink, SEGA Republic and Kidzania, Dubai Mall is a town in itself. Once inside Dubai Mall, you will find no excuse to step out; it has something for everyone. If you have a weakness for candies, you will be pleased to know that the biggest mall in Dubai has a world record of housing the world’s largest sweet shop, 'Candylicious'. For these reasons and more, Dubai Mall was featured in a documentary called Megastructures on National Geographic Channel.
The Dubai Mall
Opulent Brands Galore!
Shop, eat, sleep, repeat! Doesn't sound bad at all, right? Dubai mall with its exclusive outlets of world-class brands is definitely a place to shop till you drop. But shopping in Dubai is not the only reason to be at this world famous arcade. It has so much more to offer to keep you going from morning 10 am to midnight.
An Aquarium in the Mall
Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is a must-stop in the city. Spread up to the third floor of Dubai Mall, the Dubai Aquarium houses 140 species of aquatic life and the largest collection of sand tiger sharks.
You can not only watch these species swimming over your head, but you can also take a glass-bottom boat tour, go snorkelling, or swim with the sharks.
Ice Skating in the Desert
Dubai Ice Rink has something for all ages. It's a safe opportunity to glide on the ice with no prior experience at all. Take up a package that suits your demeanour and you can sway on the ice to your heart’s content. And if would like to shake a leg or two, join the Dubai Ice Rink disco sessions in the evening. While the Dubai mall timings are 10 am to 12 am, Dubai Ice Rink is only operational from 10 am to 10 pm. So make the best of this time, while you can.
Amusement in the Theme Park
The SEGA Republic, the coolest indoor theme park will give you an adrenaline rush that you may have never experienced before. There are races, snowboarding, bobsled, freefall, joy ride, fight with the dead and so many more electrifying activities to look forward. You can spend an entire day without a desire to rest for a split second. With an opportunity to test your skills over 170 latest amusements, SEGA Republic is definitely the place to be.
A Trip Back to Childhood
For the first time, a little twist in the rule, ‘An adult must be accompanied by a kid to Kidzania’. A place exclusively designed for children gives adults the opportunity to watch their little ones in awe while their children role-play or mimic various roles and responsibilities that the adults perform in their daily life. A pleasant and safe exchange of role, Kidzania gives a forum to children aged between 4 to 16 years to experience a unique learning environment.
