The Dubai Mall
Best for: Sheer scale and a labyrinth of options
No matter the span of ages or tastes in your family, The Dubai Mall has it covered. The world’s largest mall is packed with more than 1,200 retail outlets and plenty of spots to rest up and grab a coffee or a meal. Fashion Avenue houses more than 80 stores, with international boutiques from the likes of Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Chanel and Valentino. Alternatively, take your little ones to see a movie at Reel Cinemas or get your skates on at the Dubai Ice Rink. Educational fun is also plentiful, with KidZania allowing children to check out what it’s like to be a firefighter or a journalist, and the Dubai Aquarium housing all manner of fascinating ocean creatures. If you’d like to shop uninterrupted, KidZania has a fun nursery and Caboodle also provides top-notch day care.
