Reading Time: 5 minutes The World Is Not Enough Dubai has undergone rapid change in recent years. Cars roar through the streets, huge skyscrapers, colourful billboards turn night into day. If one still recognized certain Arabic basic features on our first journey in the year 2000, it became today a megacity. The region has undergone a “disruptive innovation”. https://youtu.be/cLCTDPOJuFc …
The Dubai Mall is one of the largest shopping centers in the world with a sales area of 350,244 square meters and over 1,200 shops. The mall extends over 4 floors and like many construction projects in Dubai was realized by Emaar Properties. To give you a better idea of the size, the following comparison might help. The Dubai Mall is as big as about 49 football fields.
Therefore there is a lot to see and discover in the mall. The Dubai Mall is located in Downtown Dubai and thus in the middle of the new city centre of the Arab Emirate. Already 7 years after the opening on November 4, 2008
Since 2010, the Dubai Mall has also been connected to the metro. You can reach the Metro station via a long, air-conditioned glass corridor with roller conveyors. This access is also called “Metro Link Bridge”. You should plan on a 15-minute walk for this.
You can visit the Mall at any time of the year. Since it is completely air-conditioned, it is also suitable for the hot summer months. If it often gets over 40 degrees Celsius between May and October, the air-conditioned mall offers a good cooling down. In order not to freeze during your visit, it is therefore always good to take a thin jacket with you. In the mall, the more than 1,200 shops invite you to go shopping.
The entrance to the mall is free of charge. It opens its doors every day (including Sundays) at 10 a.m. and is then open until midnight.
