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.

Dubai full day tour with Entry ticket to Burj Khalifa at the Top
Naveen was fantastic. Local, knowledgeable, patient, and so approachable. He went above and beyond in providing us information and tending to our individual questions. I appreciated the audio of the tour itself and the convenience of the air-conditioned, safe, clean his driving us around Dubai and even ending at Dubai Mall. Thank you for a great comprehensive tour of Dubai city!!

Big Bus Dubai Hop-On Hop-Off Tour
I did like the big bus. My only issue was that the stops on the app are not the same as the actual stops. The stop that was suppose to be at the Dubai Marina Mall does not exist anymore ( because of Covid). And there should be signs that indicate where the stops are; for instance " Big Bus stops here". Other than those issues I really like the concept. I would do it again

Really Good and Good Value for Money

Dubai Open Top Magical Night Tour
Really enjoyable tour. Cecilia was very knowledgable and quite funny. I thought it was good value for money. Definitely worth doing it at night rather than during the day as the discomfort from the heat reduced as the tour went on - I can imagine it being quite unbearable during the day.

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.

Show all


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.
