The Basics

The Dubai Mall’s outlets and family entertainments draw all types of visitor. The array of fashion houses, sportswear, children’s shops, and more make it an exciting shopping experience, while entertainment-seekers will love Dubai Ice Rink, Dubai Aquarium, and the Burj Khalifa ‘At The Top’ observatories. Other musts include Dubai Dino, the Jurassic-era dinosaur skeleton displayed at the Souk Dome. It's no surprise that the mall features on many Dubai tours—usually as an exterior photo op. Some tours include a guided walk and free time to shop, while others add on entry to the Burj Khalifa, Ski Dubai, or Dubai Aquarium.

Big Bus Dubai Hop-On Hop-Off Tour
Nice narrated tour with many available languages. However only 1 bus per hour, therefore if you miss the bus at a stop, you will have to wait another hour. The problem is that you don't really know when the bus is coming as it doesn't follow the schedule. We had to wait for 30 minutes passed the scheduled pick up time at stop 6 (Gold Souq). The actual schedule did not strictly follow the map as stops 8 and 9 were swapped. I found it a little too expensive compared to other Viator offerings...

Dubai full day tour with Entry ticket to Burj Khalifa at the Top
Overall the tour was good. However I suggest that the tour guide wait for people as they exit Burj Khalifa instead of leaving them to find there way back to the tour bus. Also he sold bottle water that I think he should have given to us as tourist since it was an 8 hour day. I would recommend it.

Private Tour from Ras Al Khaimah hotels: Dubai 10 hours tour with Car & Driver
We had an amazing day with our driver Yusuf who was very helpful, kind and understanding. He made our tour organised so we can see the most of Dubai in such a short time. We would highly recommend this tour especially with Yusuf. Thank you.

12 Hours Dubai Stopover Tour
We loved this tour. As a couple who had never been to Dubai, this was like a cultural tasting; Luxury, Shopping, Food, Dune bashing, Riding camels… and all in a private car, with an incredibly friendly and knowledgable guide. I highly recommend this tour to anyone with a long layover in Dubai we’ll worth the money

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Dubai Mall is a must-visit for shopaholics and fun-loving families with kids.

  • Expect to spend half a day or more here, perhaps on top of a visit to the Burj Khalifa or Dubai Aquarium.

  • Wear comfy shoes: the mall is the size of 200 football pitches, so there’s lots of walking.

  • Some shops are grouped into themed areas, such as boutiques at Fashion Avenue, footwear at Level Shoes, and jewelers at the Gold Souk.

  • Free WiFi, mobile charging stations, and ATMs are available in the mall.

How to Get There

The easiest way to reach The Dubai Mall is by cab or metro. If the latter, take the Red Line to the Dubai Mall/Burj Khalifa stop, and catch a shuttle or ride the travelators on the Metro Link glass bridge—it’s a 1-mile (1.5-kilometer) trip. Frequent buses to the mall also run from Deira Gold Souk and Al Ghubaiba bus station.

When to Get There

The Dubai Mall is great any time, but perhaps best in summer, when it offers cool respite from Dubai’s heat. The quietest times to explore are early after the 10am opening, and Sundays-Wednesdays before the weekends hit. Perhaps synchronize your visit with the Dubai Fountain shows outside: at 1pm and 1:30pm (1.30pm and 2pm Fridays) and half-hourly between 6pm and 11pm.

Other Attractions at Dubai Mall

The Dubai Mall is ringed by the attractions of Downtown Dubai, so it’s easy to combine a visit with other activities. Perhaps catch The Dubai Fountain show at the adjoining Burj Lake or relax at a waterfront restaurant outside the mall with Burj Khalifa views.
