    Within the Dubai Mall are plenty of sights besides the over 1200 stores. Aquarium with creatures large and small visible without entering, 150-million year old diplodocus dinosaur, ice skating, waterfalls, Arabian-themed souk, and more.

    I didn’t rate it 5 due to the lack of directional signage for restrooms and other amenities.

    The village is primarily a huge out door mall selling items potentially from the region in my understanding but it seemed to be selling only local fare, this was another reason to only rate it 4. The shop under Paris seemed to sell clothing from the local UAE region unlike clothes from France.

    The flip side is the theme park a great place for all ages, and the queues are short for most rides. the rides are quite pricey but you do have the option of buying larger bundles of credits to get even more free credits. We purchased 550 credits and were given 720 credits in total.

    Get there by 4 and the parking is close by without premium Parking charges. We easily spent 4 hours without realising, and could have gone a lot longer.

    There are food places but very little for those that are lacto-vegetarians and also lack of ingredients listings on each food stand meant queuing and then asking only to be told no the items contain egg etc. so not great for those with allergens.

    A quick chance to shop at this souk and a beautiful place to peruse. Wonderful facade as you enter, and once inside, it has an atmospheric feel. Good place to get your gifts and perhaps buy some Arabic clothing. Several places to grab eats both in and outside - Costa included. Outside there are several eating places and you can take an electric(?) boat around the surrounding waterway. Popular with tourists, there is a chance to take pictures of the 'old' and the new in one shot of the souk and the Burj al Arab

    Huge beautiful mall, varied shops and not overpriced.
    This place does take time to navigate so expect to spend 3-4 hours having a wander. It is missing some popular brands but more value to be had than the more touristy malls.
    Locals clearly come here for their shopping and the huge carrefour.
    The different regional zones add atmosphere and similar but much bigger than the one in Vegas.
    Plenty of places for a pit stop coffee as well as food.
    Well worth a visit if you’re looking to do some shopping.

    The mall is a popular tourist attraction due to it being behind the Marina. It’s not too crowded and sometimes can be quite empty in the morning. There are some touristy restaurants. You can access the mall by car,tram or taxi.

    Good range of shops, but some people on the streets try and call you in, and some shopkeepers try and sell fakes.

    The genuine places are good though and happy to do a deal

    This is a relatively small mall but with a good array of retail and food and beverage outlets, plus a good sized Spinneys and cinema.

    The main atrium is Italian themed and very light. It is particularly pleasant at Christmas.

    There is plenty of parking.

    Busy narrow streets for shopping. Like a mini India. There's a little 2 story mall with a perfume shop on the right. This guy gives the best money exchange rate.
    Opposit the mall a few meters down there's an entrance into a little bazaar. Stunning abaya, scarves and more. Be sure to negotiate. You could reduce the price by 20 to 30%
    Use the metro to get there.

    This mall includes Egyptian decor and an impressively authentic Souk downstairs.

    There is also an excellent Middle Eastern restaurant in the courtyard which is well worth a visit.

    A market like any other (aggressive sales folks, bargaining, shops aplenty, focus on price rather than quantity), Karama is quintessential "old Dubai".
