Dubai leaves no one indifferent. The cosmopolitan city of Dubai is famous for constructing the tallest skyscraper in the world and holding the largest ski track in one of its ‘Malls.’ But it is also, doubtlessly, famous for being the luxurious destiation in plain desert par excellence, among many other things. The economy of Dubai is fully focused on tourism and luxury shopping.
Many tourists coming to the Persian Gulf, manage to find in Dubai completely exclusive clothes or limited editions impossible to find elsewhere in the world.
‘The Dubai Mall’ is the world’s largest shopping center, visited by millions of tourists. It is a unique attraction in the world for adults and children. A ‘city’ that houses absolutely everything a tourist might need within its walls, from restaurants, movie theaters, cafes, ice rink, to chauffeur service between stores.
It has the largest and exclusive space dedicated only to luxury footwear: Level. It is for this reason that it has become the most sought space. While shopping here, tourists can make a stop along the way and enjoy the most succulent coffees of pastas in the Vogue Café.
In Fashion Avenue is where our credit card truly begins to suffer, and so does the tourist. A long avenue that goes all the way to Armani Café, with magnificent carpets and sofas that make an afternoon of shopping cozy among brands like Elie Saab, Christian Louboutin, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, Armani, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Jimmy Choo, among others.
Another of the most prominent shopping centers is the ‘Mall of the Emirates,’ which houses a large indoor ski slope where you can even book private lessons.
As for fashion, you will find dozens of brands here, such as Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta and Chanel. There is also room for high street jewelry brands such as Tiffany & Co, Cartier and Rolex.
‘Ibn Battuta Mall’ is another place worth mentioning, as it is the largest themed mall in the world, inspired by the travels made around the world by the explorer that gave the center its name.
And if these malls were not enough, we can always continue our shopping at Dubai Marina Mall, in the vicinity of the Armada BlueBay**** , which offers top brands; Boulevard Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Shopping Wafi, Burjuman Mall or The Souk.
