A shopping paradise
Dubai is home to the largest mall in the world, Dubai Mall. Situated at the base of the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall is almost a city in itself. Arrive at Dubai Mall from your serviced apartments in Dubai by taking a short trip northward on the Dubai Metro. Once there, be prepared to spend the entire day - there's that much to see and do. Inside, you'll find over 70 dining venues for breakfast alone, an aquarium and underwater zoo, an ice rink, a complete dinosaur skeleton, cinemas, a spooky 'haunted' theme park, and hundreds of boutique fashion shops, restaurants and much more. The highlight of a day at Dubai Mall is a journey up the Burj Khalifa itself to the observation deck, situated an impressive 555 metres above sea level. Be sure to book ahead - the attraction is so popular walk-ins are almost impossible to secure.
