The journey time between The Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates is about 28 minutes and covers a distance of about 13 km. A shopping mall like no other. The Dubai Mall has more than 1,300 of its favorite brands, more than 200 international dining experiences and entertainment for the whole family. Located in Dubai (United Arab Emirates), it is part of the $20 billion Downtown complex (called Downtown Dubai), adjacent to the iconic Burj Khalifa, and includes more than 1200 stores.
The Grand Atrium of the Dubai Mall houses a replica of the Dubai Creek Tower, which is currently under construction. The Dubai Mall registered 61,000 tickets sold for the Dubai Aquarium and the Discovery Centre in the first five days after its opening. The megaplex, one of the largest theaters in the region, has four movie theaters and 17 commercial theaters, including the first THX-certified cinema in Dubai. The aquarium, located in The Dubai Mall shopping center, exhibits more than 300 species of marine animals, including sharks and rays.
It is the largest mall in the world by total area and the 26th largest mall in the world by gross leasable area, on a par with West Edmonton Mall and Fashion Island (Bangkok), which are older than it.
