  • Big is an understatement Only one word to described this shopping centre.....HUGE! Everything about the centre is large, from the Aquarium to the largest candy shop in the world, to the actual time it takes to walk around the whole centre. It is easy to get lost, and I did. Trying to find the grocery store took me roughly an hour as the lift to the floor it is on is slightly off the beaten track. Instead of going down the escalator to what you would think is the floor the supermarket is on, you are then met with a car park. You actually need to go back upstairs and find the lift that actually takes you to the floor the supermarket is on. One could easily spend a day here and still not see every shop there is within. Word of advice, beware the taxi hawkers....they tend to wait for you just at the exit of the building and then pounce....if you take them up on their offer you have to return to the store and go back down the escalator in order to get into a taxi. My advice is just to go downstairs and walk to the front of the line...there WILL be a long line of taxis and if you follow a hawker you will more then likely get a taxi at the end of the line. Something I found unusual was the sleeping bay on the lower floor, there are actually sleeping pods where you can catch 20 winks after walking around the shopping centre due to the fact you got lost! Lots of things to see within the building from the waterfall to the ice skating rink...if you only want a few groceries then go elsewhere, if you have spare time and wish to shop leisurely, then you will need to put aside at least a day to do so in this building. For mine, this centre is more of an attraction than a place to shop...I did notice a lot of people just walking around looking rather then shopping. Nice to visit, probably would not shop there if I only wanted a few groceries.
  • This is a fabulous place to visit. Here it is better to be prepared for a long stay for there are many shops, attractions, and food. This is a busy mall, so it should be taken into consideration that it can be very crowded Thursday and Friday night. If you are here to have fun and spend some money, this is the place to go for that  huge and beautifully designed mall. Big range of stores and a good food court. Definitely a must see when you are in Dubai. You should definitely plan a lot of time for a visit because there are so many good stores to take a look at. The stores are for every price range and there are a lot of them. Some of the stores are expensive designer stores such as Tiffany's but also stores like Zara that are not expensive.
  • Stunning beautiful over the top.. This place is huge take your walking shoes and your wallet. If your a shopper or a foodie you will love this place.. 3 days of of shopping and still we didn't get to all the places.. Aquarium is stunning.. Feeding the sharks at 2 is a must see..
