    A great shopping mall.
    From high street shops like Zara, to designer brands like Dior, this mall has it all.

    It’s so big, we didn’t even get round the whole thing, and we were there for 5 hours.

    The waterfall with the divers is stunning.

    It wasn’t too busy and most queues were fairly small within shops and food outlets.

    The outside fountain is great as well and our children loved the fountain show.

    The queue for the taxi rank is WILD. I’ve never seen anything like it. There was at least 40 people in front of us at one point, and at least another 2 rows behind us. We queued for over an hour which wasn’t ideal at all.
    Especially when one of the kids needed the toilet and finding the nearest one was a nightmare.

    Would defo go here again, but would dedicate a whole day to see everything. Especially because we would like to see the Burj Khalifa and fountain show at night, instead of the day.

    Mall of the Emirates compared to places in Canada was unbelievable. So many stores and the options to have fun like indoor skiing was incredible.

    This is a stunning indoor-outdoor mall centrally located in Dubai.

    There is a great cinema (Roxy), lots of food and beverage outlets, including a dedicated licensed area (C2), indoor rainforest (Green Planet), regular live entertainment and more.

    The retail offering has improved recently with lots of new openings.

    the fountain display at the festival mall was awesome. Colourful with a laser display, fire n sounds from the fountain made it for a thrilling displays .

    The Christmas displays n entertainment on the outside of the festival mall where the fountains are the made me feel like a child again.

    To me, the festive mall outweighed the Dubai n Emirates Malls.

    The mall was more normal n family orientated. I suppose since it's not rated as touristy, no hype about it.

    This is not a traditional “open” souk, but a series of small shops selling gold and more gold. The array and quantity is stunning and worth a visit if you are interested in Jewellery and if you like to haggle for a bargain. It is located beside the spice souk so really a 2 in 1 experience.

    Visited this mall in 2006 and once again in 2022.
    Mercato Shopping Mall is a shopping centre in the Jumeirah area of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The mall is designed to look like a Mediterranean town during the European Renaissance in Italy. Opening in 2002, the name "mercato" comes from the Italian word meaning "market." And this ball fascinated me as it was somehow different from the other malls but given the history it lives up to its reputation. It’s not very crowded and my kind of a place where one can go around and see and if possible shop in peace !

    Nice area near Raffles Dubai, with a decent mall, and some good eateries. Ate at the original Asha's restaurant, with really good food. The mall is relatively small, but with some unique attributes.

    This is a cool area with limited vehicle access in Al Quoz.

    There are a wide range of independent restaurants and stores as well as regular pop ups, markets, a cinema and fitness centres.

    A great spot to visit for something different in Dubai.
