Dubai Shopping Malls

In Dubai the malls are about so much more than shopping. They’re a place for socializing, for meeting up with friends for coffee, a movie or bowling, for hanging out with the family at a fun fair or eatery. Dubai’s malls also boast theaters, art galleries, child minding centers, and even mosques. Think of them as the equivalent of an old town square, piazza or plaza in Europe.
