Things You Can Do in Dubai Mall (Other Than Shopping!)


Anyone who comes to Dubai should not miss to see Dubai Mall. First, it is the closest neighbor of the world’s tallest building.  While it is a shopping haven of 1200 retail shops with 200 food outlets, there are a lot more from this world class destination for the entertainment seeker. Here is some things to see and do at Dubai Mall:

1.  Say hello to Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building

A visit to Dubai is never complete without an experience with Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower . Take photos in front of Burj Khalifa, or better yet, go up levels 148 and 125 to be amazed on a 360 view of Dubai from above. Entry to Burj Khalifa is from Dubai Mall.

2.  Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo

The Aquarium Tank is one of the largest suspended aquariums in the world. Visitors can freely see some sharks, rays and other aquatic animals from the long, wide and tall panel. But for additional marine life experience, visitors can pay to get into the Aquarium Tunnel and the Underwater Zoo. Fees start from AED100. Find other ticket information here.

3. Spell Spectacular for the Dubai Fountain dance shows

Get mesmerized as you watch water jets reaching 140 meters high elegantly dance in sync with the lights and music at the regular shows of the Dubai Fountain by the lake just a step outside of the mall and at the foot of Burj Khalifa. Check here for the show schedules.
