With more than 1200 shops, 120 restaurants and cafés, an enormous aquarium with 30,000 fish, and an Olympic skating rink, the Dubai Mall is a spectacular attraction. Shop at Marc Jacobs and Manolo Blahnik and eat at Ping Pong Dim Sum or Yo Sushi. Enjoy a few rounds on the skating rink when the outside temperature soars to 40 degrees, or relax in a bubble bath at Acqua di Parma.
The Dubai Mall breaks world records. With more than 1.1 million square feet, this is the largest shopping centre in the world. It houses the world's largest candy store, called Candylicious , which measures 930 square metres. And the mall claims to be the most visited leisure destination in the world, welcoming 65 million visitors (in 2012) a year, far more than the entire city of New York.
