Mall of the Emirates

Shopping Centre in Jumeirah

Home to Ski Dubai, a community theatre, a 24-screen multiplex cinema and – let's not forget – 630 shops, Mall of the Emirates is one of Dubai's most popular shopping centres. With narrow walkways and no daylight, it can feel a tad claustrophobic at peak times (except in the striking Fashion Dome, lidded by a vaulted glass ceiling and home to luxury brands).
