Economically leaving many cities behind, Dubai is mostly famous with Burj Khalifa, oil, gold, and Sheikhs. The wealth of the city is not finished with this. Dubai being able to include several Malls in the list of the biggest shopping malls in 2019, is the city with the largest shopping malls in the world.
The map of the shopping malls in this city is quite sophisticated. Here it is possible to go shopping, have fun, relax, and eat. Dubai's largest shopping center receives an average of 80 million visitors a year. With the word "center," do not only think of luxurious lights, decorated showcases, the youths in every corner, and young people who sit and eat. In the shopping centers of Dubai, you will find a vast aquarium with whales and sharks, snow-covered ski arenas, giant chandeliers, luxury restaurants, and the largest children's playrooms you have ever seen. So let's get to know the ten biggest Malls in Dubai.
The Dubai Mall
The world's largest shopping center, Dubai Mall, receives more than 750,000 visitors each week. The purpose of the visitors is not just shopping, but also skiing at the Olympic skiing court, walking at aquarium and underwater zoo (there are sharks, various kinds of mammals, small fish and a penguin flock), and taking a selfie at Dubai's live-action decoration pools and in front of the Burj Khalifa.
There are five luxury hotels in the region for those who want to relax all day, which are also the perfect places for anyone tired of exploring the products of primary and popular brands all day. Another option for those who are tired after shopping is to sit at the Social House restaurant with the "East and West meet" concept and enjoy the beauty.
If we say that the prices are low here, we would be wrong. To see such a breathtaking sight can cost you a bit. However, for those who want to travel, discover new places, and see the world's largest shopping mall, a few hundred dollars are not much.
The Mall of the Emirates
With the largest indoor winter park in the world, the shopping center generates over 60% of its revenue from the Ski Dubai complex. This ski area, which is visited by thousands of visitors all year long, is famous in the world. You can ski here yourself and learn from professional teachers. Moreover, if you like, you can take a picture with little and beloved residents - penguins.
At the exit, you will receive some small gifts you can save from Dubai as a souvenir. All this is an excellent and hospitable example for tourists.
The Ibn Battuta Mall
Named after a 12th-century explorer, this shopping center is not only Dubai but also the world's largest themed shopping mall. Here you can observe the enormous craftsmanship on the walls, facades, and decor that you have never been accustomed to see. We can even say that this Mall is famous for chandeliers.
Each section in the Mall reminds one country. You can find India's famous elephant models made of gold-plated metals, Egyptian hieroglyphs, Greek hymns, and so on here.
The Souk Madinat

There are artificial channels in the Mall, so you can roam around and enjoy these channels. Small boats around will take you back to the 10th-12th centuries, and you will feel yourself in a completely different century.
The Wafi Mall
The Wafi Mall is located in the iconically designed Dubai pyramid, and as you can imagine, the building has an image of Egyptian pyramids. In front of it, there is an Arab luxury market and the Cleopatra Spa center on the other side. The complex sells mainly high-quality Arabic brands and several international products. This shopping center is a frequent destination for wealthy locals looking for bedding sets, traditional men's clothing, and high-quality Eastern and Western fragrances. Restaurants here offer a wide range of tastes. Remember to watch a strange but exciting light show before or after dinner (at 9:30). The show revives the decorative hieroglyphs that change in each chapter and illuminate the great pharaohs.
The Dubai Marina Mall
Dubai Marina Mall, one of the most visited tourist shopping centers, has earned its customers' love mainly because of its affordable restaurants and a large and comfortable cinema hall.

Although the exterior and interior architecture reminds us of the most common interior today, the back and the front yard of the shopping center is so green and gorgeous that it resembles paradise.
