Dubai shopping centers, like most everything in Dubai, are spectacular and completely over the top. Dubai Mall is the largest in the world with 1,200 shops and restaurants. With the imposing Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building) right outside, you could easily spend a week in Dubai Mall taking in all the shops, souks, fountains, ice skating, and of course, people watching.
Not to be outdone is Mall of The Emirates with its indoor ski slope and accompanying ski lodge in the middle of the Arabian desert.

Ibn Battuta Mall comes in as the third most spectacular mall as far as quality of shops, but not in terms of decor. The themed decor includes entire sections dedicated to the colorful cultures of Egypt, India, Persia, and China.
