Revisiting Dubai – Mall hopping and a visit to Burj Khalifa
Everyone has a dream destination you wish to visit once in a lifetime.
I am still wondering how I missed to write a blog post on my trip to Dubai two years ago. And thank God for all those photographs the memories came gushing back.
Nonetheless I wish to revisit my memory bank and pen down a few highlights on this family holiday. This is my first blogpost in which I will talk about Dubai being a shoppers paradise and the mesmerizing beauty – Burj Khalifa.
Things We did and saw in Dubai
I am not such a big shopping addict, but like they say ” When in Rome do as the Romans do” So decided to go with the flow on this Dubai trip while enjoying shopping and window shopping. So I was prepared to walk for miles at a stretch without complaining. Planned well and carried my most comfortable footwear on this trip. Dubai is so well connected with the Metro and practically each station opens up into a Shopping Mall. Absolutely no need to take on the furnace-oven heat of the desert. When you can enjoy the most beautiful air conditioned Malls in the world. Some of the Malls we visited were
Deira City Centre – This Mall was very close to the service apartment we put up in so we visited twice. Some real genuine sales and discounts at that time.
Mall of the Emirates – Its better known as a shopping resort, Mall of the Emirates has approx 2.4 million square feet of retail floor space. More than 630 high-end brands and fashion designers from around the world. If you get tired of shopping, there are still plenty of things to do at Mall of the Emirates. If you need the mood for some recreation then enjoy the games at Magic Planet, a family theme park, or drop by the renowned indoor ski resort, Ski Dubai, for a day of skiing or snowboarding, tobogganing and playing with the penguins.
Burjuman Centre – Burjuman Centre is one of the oldest malls in Dubai, situated near Burjuman Metro Station. But it has been renovated and looks fantastic. The attractions include a magic planet, cinema, large food hall, lots of kids clothes and toy shops, heaps of clothes, makeup and gifts for adults and above all, a large Carrefour supermarket.
Ibn Battuta Mall –
The mall is so unique, it is divided into six courts, each reflecting the different regions through which Ibn Battuta ( an ancient explorer) travelled – Andalusia, Tunisia, Egypt, Persia, India and China. The interior qill take your breath away. It was so nice to pwople feom all walks of life, dressed up and walking beside you. What a wonderful world we live in to be able to experience amazing places, delicious food and great cultures in incredibly gorgeous settings like this awesome mall in Dubai. It felt like Alice in Wonderland.

Dubai Mall – Being the largest mall in the world, it is impossible to cover it in a day. It has everything your heat desires. From numerous restaurants, brands of the world, It even has an aquarium and underwater zoo that is breathtaking.
The first sight of this Large gigantic structure was breath taking, I kept staring at it in disbelief. Slowly coming to terms with its height and magnitude. Burj Khalifa has redefined what is possible in the design and engineering of super tall buildings. Such a great experience to be able to view Dubai from the tallest building. Plenty of space to walk around and take photos. It dazzles in the sunlight during the day and is completely lit at at mesmerizing all the viewers and admirers of this tallest structure of the world.
Now one more place to visit was off my bucket list. In my next post we will visit the Dessert Safari, Gold Souk, Musical Fountains, take a trip on Dhou cruise.

My dream place to visit. Wonderful wordings!
I love the term mall hopping! I had never heard it said like that. There aren’t enough malls here where I live to do such a thing. We have just one in area and it looks bare and empty as most of the stores have all closed down. Our mall has a food court but it no longer sells food as everything has lost business. Your mall pictures are quite the site to see. Thanks for sharing.
you look great. Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience.
Dubai is such an interesting destination and so much to do for everyone. The mall is excellent and so much activity to do. Thanks for sharing

This must be the best place in the world for shopping. The size of the malls there are just unbelievable! I’m sure you could easily get lost, not to mention bankrupt! What a great experience. Plus the Burj Khalifa would be so amazing to see and look out to Dubai in.
