Dubai Mall | A world of experience on its Own
As you all must have noticed, shopping is not a thing for me whenever I’m on vacation. Long story short, I was told that Dubai Mall was dreamland and when I discovered that it was only a stone-throw from my hotel, I decided to visit. Boyyyyy…..I was blown away. I mean, the mall would be anyone’s delight. You can easily spend the whole day there. People have described it as ‘‘Heaven on Earth’’, ‘‘Adventure land’’, ‘‘Living entertainment centre’’ etc.
Sincerely not until I got back from my trip did I realize that Dubai Mall is one of the World’s largest mall. With that much consumerism in one place, it is sure living up to the title.
The Mall has a lot of shops, restaurants, cafes, galleries, and fun places. Infact there were chains of stores that I thought could only be seen in America but there they were in Dubai Mall. The food court was so massive that I was confused as to what to eat. I eventually landed at the Indian section. lol
There’s an ice skating, an underground zoo and aquarium, an unusual waterfall and so much more. So many activities to keep you wondering around all day plus the decors in each shop just draws you in. I kept wondering to myself if it was a requirement to own a store in the mall. Just maybe!.
For the first time, the word ‘mall’ meant so much more to me than just shopping! It was a whole experience. Besides eating an Indian cuisine and paying for activities, in all my wondering around, I didn’t buy one item.
SIGHTSEEING TOUR OF THE DUBAI MALL
Dinosaur Skeleton aka Dubai Dino
Okay, I must admit, I went to Dubai with an open mind and unusually didn’t research much about the place. I was stunned to see an actual dinosaur skeleton hanging out in the Atrium. Instagram failed to bring this picture to my attention or am I following the wrong accounts. lol
2. The Waterfall
Someone said ‘‘If you don’t get up to anything in the mall, ensure you take a picture at the waterfall, else you were never there’’. The waterfall is far more massive and beautiful physically than any Instagram picture I have seen. The human figures diving inside the water was so creative.
‘‘The combination of natural features and crafted art makes for an interesting effect as you stare up the creation’’.
