As more and more shopping malls are built in Dubai, residents wonder why another shopping mall is needed. And yet, as soon as a new one is opened, it seems to fill up very quickly. To enjoy a wander through a shopping mall, visit Mercato in Jumeirah to get a taste of an Italian market (no, we know it's nothing like the real thing) or Ibn Battuta Mall to learn a bit of history about the famous (he's even in Wikipedia) Arabian traveller and have a coffee in the most splendid Starbucks in Dubai. Of course The Dubai Mall is not to be missed - there are enough attractions in the area to easily fill a day or two even if you don't do any shopping.


Opening hours for Dubai shopping malls

Some shops will have different from normal shopping center hours eg supermarkets may open 0800 or 0900 to midnight. Fridays can be confusing with some shops only opening at 1600 in the afternoon, while others are open from 1000. Specific information is given in the list of Dubai and UAE shopping malls below, but hours can vary. As a general rule, shops are open 1000-2200 Saturday to Thursday, 1400 or 1600 to 2200 or 2400 on Fridays, and some of the larger shopping centers open late on Thursday-Saturday (from 1000-2400). Busy times are Friday afternoons and evenings (almost everyone has Fridays off) and Thursday evenings. Other evenings are not exactly quiet though. Mornings are the best time to avoid crowds.
