Shopping in Dubai

An Unforgettable Experience!

Hi! Kish here to talk some business...

Shopping in Dubai is one of my favorite activities to do in there! It is an experience that you will not forget that quick!

With so many malls, souks and supermarkets, it is no wonder that even the ordinary Dubai citizen can sometimes be a bit awed by the shopper’s paradise.

For any tourist, the hard part of the whole shopping experience may be the idea of having to tear oneself away from it all.

The shopper’s paradise is certainly an apt name for Dubai because it offers the very best there is in ambience, the sun and ‘out of this world’ shopping malls where each one of them offers fantastic deals.

There are quite a few places that a you can do your shopping from, making your Dubai shopping a complete experience.

The Burjuman center is a vast shopping mall that comes with adjoining Rotana suites, perfect for you if you can't seem to stop shopping." This mall contains over 300 leading stores with a whole range of products being featured here.

Then there is the shopping mall at Deira called the Deira city center. This mall has over 340 shops, with designer brands being featured prominently in many of them. This mall also contains restaurants, fast food outlets as well as movie theatres, making it a perfect venue to hang out with friends during the weekend.

These are just a two of the malls that you can cover during your stay in Dubai. The great thing about the shopping malls is that you can find most of them self contained in the sense that most of them come with a food court, movie theatres, medical shops, living quarters, entertainment zones, etc… in short, a place to hang out in for quite a while.

For example, the mall of the Emirates contains over 350 stores, a ski resort, a theater, an amusement park and a bank amongst many other options. Dubai shopping has certainly changed for the better with the very best being provided for the shopper.

You can stay for days in any one of these malls without having to step outside at all, which is not just a possibility but a reality as well. The palm strip situated in Jumeirah deserves a special mention as one of the classiest shopping malls, with an open air ambience, lending it a special touch. Most of the shops located here are up market boutiques, with café’s and restaurants excelling in their cuisine.

Most items are not taxed in Dubai and as such the shopping malls of Dubai offer the very best in prices when it comes to the latest designer wear. It is true that such designer wear may still cost a bit, but with little or no taxation on them, even the middle class can afford to go ‘Prada’ once in a while.

Currently with over 25 malls and many souks, Dubai has literally become the shopping capital of the world. Many people visit Dubai just for the sole purpose of shopping. Make sure to get your dose on your trip to Dubai.
