5 Exciting Leisure Activities at Dubai Mall

As the world's largest shopping mall and entertainment store, there are more than a few opportunities to indulge in some retail therapy at the Dubai Mall. But if shopping is not your bag, there are a whole host of other activities on offer there.

Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa

Standing at 830 meters, Burj Khalifa is the planet's tallest skyscraper. Visitors are able to ascend the tower and get an unbeatable view.

SEGA Republic

It's a theme park inside the mall!

Fear of Flying

Originally designed to help people conquer their fear of flying, this flight simulator can also be great fun for pretending to fly the high skies.

Dubai Fountain

Dubai Fountain

With water shooting 150 meters into the air, these fountains - located just outside Dubai Mall - are a true sight to behold.

Our insider tips

Strategical shopping

If you're a bargain hunter, the best time for deals at Dubai Mall is right after the holiday season. If you prefer less crowds and want to take your time window shopping then plan your visit for another time of year!

How many stores are in the Mall?

There are more than 1,200 different stores - some unique to Dubai, some from other parts of the world, such as London's Harrods. Enjoy and go wild!

Eating options

There are some food courts in the Dubai Mall, but no restaurants - if you fancy a sit-down meal then head over to its' sister mall, Souk Al Bahar, to grab a bite.

Can I get a good view of the city from the Mall?

The best view over the city is indisputably from the Burj Khalifa tour, easily accessible from the Dubai Mall.

It was one of the most memorable things we did in Dubai, and a beautiful experience, but if you do not want the ride on the boat you can watch the fountain show free from the side. Finding the ticket office was not easy and the queue was at least 30 minutes Susan and John England

The Abra boat provides the ideal location for watching a fountain show and getting away from the crowds on the surrounding rail. It is rather peaceful out on the lake and the motor is electric, which is quiet and odor free. I highly recommend this ride.

We loved the Dubai fountain boat trip. It was a wonderful experience, being so close to the beautiful fountains. We were lucky enough to have Adele singing Skyfall playing. The music and synchronised fountain display was beautiful and quite emotional.

Very well laid out. Hand sanitizer everywhere. Social distancing in place. Very enjoyable ride along the river with views of the fountains and buildings. Food was very nice and staff were very attentive.

This is once in a lifetime experience. You will have so much fun and will even cry on how beautiful this all is. Make sure you take your little ones, they will love the show too.
