Partake in Dubai’s national pastime and shop until you drop at some of the world’s finest shopping malls. Shopping is the national pastime of Dubai and this is reflected in its many ornate shopping malls. Burjuman and Deira City Centre have been overtaken in size by Mall of the Emirates and Ibn Battuta, but for sheer scale, nothing beats Dubai Mall, the world’s biggest shopping mall. Shuttle buses are available to take guests from the hotel to Mall of the Emirates, at frequent intervals. Familiar high-street and designer brands can be found across the city, as can numerous innovative boutiques. An annual Shopping Festival is held in spring each year, attracting up to 3.5 million visitors who flock to Dubai for incredible offers and discounts.
