It is also one of the most chosen tourist places on the global tourism map. A place to relax and enjoy!

    Great article. I love shopping at Mall of the Emirates, Dubai. The stores in the mall offer a perfect combination of luxury buys as well as affordable commodities. I bought most of my electronic gadgets and appliances there during my stay in Dubai. There are numerous electronic retail shops including Apple store and Virgin Megastore. The place can get a little crowded during the weekends, but can’t complain due to the selection and prices the stores are opening.
