Shopping Districts

If you’re moving to a new area in Dubai or just planning a shopping trip, it helps to know what your options are across the city. While there is generally a mall or shopping centre within striking distance of anywhere you end up, different areas can also conjure up some different shopping treats. We've summarised the shopping opportunities in the city's different districts to help you figure out where to go.

Where to Shop
If venturing into the gargantuan Dubai Mall exhausts you at the very thought, try Dubai Marina Mall, handy for the Marsa Dubai end of town, or Mercato Shopping Mall towards the northern end of Jumeira Road. Both are a more manageable size and usually pretty calm, but have a good range of popular shops. 

For a breath of fresh air – literally – head to Wasl Square or Citywalk, both in Jumeira. These outdoor complexes have a more interesting range of shops, as well as lovely alfresco cafes and several amenities. 

For the true Middle Eastern shopping experience, head for Dubai Creek, where the buzzing souks of Deira and Bur Dubai are and haggle to your heart’s content.
