Sight Seen : The Dazzling Dubai - Dubai Mall

Dubai - Dubai Mall

The mother of all malls is much more than the sum of its 1200 stores: it’s a veritable family entertainment centre with such crowd magnets as a huge aquarium, an amusement park with thrill rides and arcade games, an Olympic-sized ice rink and a genuine dinosaur skeleton. It also boasts a gorgeous souq, a designer-fashion avenue with catwalk and its own glossy monthly magazine. And as if that weren't enough, the mall was undergoing expansion when we visited.
