If you are heading off to Dubai for your vacation this year, then it is not all about the sun, sea and sandy beaches. One of the premier Dubai attractions has to be the shopping. Dubai has attracted many big brands and stores to this fascinating desert kingdom, because they operate in a duty free zone, and for tourists there is no sales tax on purchases made in Dubai, so you can be assured of the best deals on prices and quality goods. The traditional souks of Dubai are a fantastic and educational way to see the traditions and culture of this ancient country, but if you’re in the mood for some high-end shopping then you’ll enjoy a trip to some of the modern malls and shopping centers that can be found in Dubai.
The Wafi City Mall was opened in 2001 and is located in the up market area of Wafi City, which is in central Dubai. This Dubai shopping mall is huge and covers four floors of a dream shopping experience. The entire mall is designed with an Egyptian theme and the décor alone is worth a visit. You will be in awe of the huge pyramid styled glass atriums that take the breath away, the pyramids are connected by a two-story walkway that makes it easy to get around and totally safe. Wafi City Mall is linked to the Pyramids center, which is where you will find some of the most fascinating and interesting events and exhibitions in Dubai.
