Mall of the Emirates

Middle-East : Dubai : Dubai Shopping : Dubai Shopping Malls


Mall of the Emirates or shortly just Emirates Mall is located in the downtown area of New Dubai, in the Al Barsha district. Being the largest mall of Dubai, until the opening of Dubai Mall in 2008, the Mall of the Emirates is currently the second most visited mall of the United Arab Emirates.


The Mall of the Emirates has on offer a huge variety of stores and attractions to its visitors every day. The Mall of the Emirates had first opened its doors to the public in 2005, and it was a great success for the community of Dubai, already having been famous all over the world for their love of luxury shopping. The mall hosts all the most famous and popular brands in the world.


When designing the Mall of the Emirates, the developers had put high emphasis on the entertainment complexes within the mall. Currently, the mall hosts one of the most popular kid’s entertainment centre, called the Magic Planet, which is undoubtedly a great place for children of all ages and highly visited as a great place for family programmes as well. Magic Planet also has a nursery, so if children are bored of shopping, parents can leave them in Magic Planet for a couple of hours. They are under protection of caring hands in the mall. There is also a famous cinema complex within the Mall of the Emirates.


The biggest attraction of the Mall of the Emirates is the Dubai Ski complex, which has become well known and highly anticipated all over the world. We might have heard that Dubai was planning to construct the largest ever entertainment city in its area called Dubailand, but the project has been cancelled together with the hundreds of planned attractions planned to be there. One cancelled project of Dubailand was a large snow-city called Snowdome, housing many snow-hills and a large variety of winter animals in its area. The developers could not make this project, but could at least turn a large part of this plan into reality. The never-seen-before attraction of Dubai is the Dubai Ski, which is even more popular in the circle of locals than for tourists.


Ski Dubai offers one the chance to ski, in the Middle of the hot Dubai Desert. Although it sounds unbelievable, yet it is true. Therefore, you should go to see Ski Dubai, an attraction that also ensures the world; that if it is about unbelievable, then Dubai will definitely make it come true. Ski Dubai is currently among the most visited attractions within Dubai.


The great thing is that you do not have to go within Ski Dubai to see it from the inside. The smart designers have built it as part of the Mall of the Emirates, so that people can look inside of it. This serves as a motivation factor and serves very well for the enlarging of the number of visitors of the Mall of the Emirates. As part of several shopping tours, this mall, together with the Dubai Mall is the most visited place in town.
