Dubai Mall is the largest mall in the world by total area. Along with West Edmonton Mall in Canada, it is the nineteenth largest shopping mall in the world by gross leasable area. Located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, it is part of the 20-billion-dollar Downtown complex, and includes 1,200 shops. This mall has several options for dining, entertainment, shops for kids, men, and women. This mall features the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, The Waterfall, The Dubai Fountain and the Burj Khalifa.
Dubai Mall by the way is the first place that I've visited here in the UAE. With so much excitement and clueless of what I'm about to see in this mall, me and my colleagues went there to hang out and we were indeed amazed by this famous mall.

After we passed through a series of walkalators, we finally reached the entrance of the mall that is directly connected to the Metro.
With it being so massive, Dubai Mall boasts several unique attractions inside to provide not just a rewarding shopping experience but also entertainment.
One of the attractions of the mall is The Waterfall. It's not your ordinary fall as there are several divers, sculpted in bronze, that appears to be diving from the top to the bottom of the fall. Whatever reason is behind this idea, everyone finds it truly amazing as it became of the most favorite spot for picture-taking inside the mall.

Another attraction in the mall is the Aquarium and Undrwater Zoo. The 10-million litre Dubai Aquarium tank, located on the Ground Level of The Dubai Mall, is the largest suspended aquariums in the world. It houses thousands of aquatic animals, comprising over 140 species. Over 300 sharks and rays live in this tank, including the largest collection of Sand Tiger sharks in the world.
Other places of interest are The Village, Burj Khalifa, Dubai Fountain, and so much more. If you want to make the most of your stay in Dubai, you might want to pay a visit in this grandiose mall.
Take the Metro Red Line and get off at Burj Khalifa Station. It is several minutes away from the station and you can either walk or take several walkalators.
