Wafi Mall is not only a place in Dubai where you can shop, but it has been specifically created for leisure and for giving such an attraction to Dubai, which will make tourists return shortly.


Wafi Mall within Wafi City is really a site to see. Wafi City is located near downtown Dubai, and it is such a project, which has been created to give back the atmosphere of ancient Egypt. You will see pyramids, tombs and buildings that all mirrors the ancient atmosphere of Egyptian culture and arts. The whole complex was built to be similar to Karnak, one of the greatest sites in Egypt where you can see the remaining in their best shape, restored to show, how people used to live in those times.


Besides all that, Wafi City is a complex, built for entertainment and for shopping purposes. Wafi City within Wafi Mall is in the Oud Mehta district, which is famous for its colourful intercultural institutes and buildings, forming one important part of the downtown of Dubai.


Besides giving home to hundreds of shops and entertainment centres, there are also several quality hotels in Wafi City, enabling the tourists to spend a couple of days there. This is a huge complex and certainly, one day will not be enough for you to see all its shops and attractions.


Wafi Mall has several parts, the modern shopping plaza look and the traditional covered Arabic souk as well. You can travel back in time when visiting the souk part. The restaurant part also mirrors the old-time Arabic atmosphere and the sight of local people enjoying their time there, might also make you feel buying a traditional Arabic garment for yourself to feel more in place over here. The textiles alone are worth visiting.
