Looking for some places to go in Downtown Dubai? It is home of some of the famous landmarks like Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall. In this area, there’s a lot of things to do like shopping, dining and relaxing. Dubai has always something to offer the visitors as they explore each and every corner of this beautiful city. Here are some of the best places where you can spend your day and unwind.
———- DUBAI MALL ———-
While the Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world, Dubai Mall is the world’s largest shopping mall. It is home of 1,200 shops with numerous attractions like the big aquarium, underwater zoo and many more. They also carry a lot of brands from high end to low end. When it comes to high fashion, they pay homage to more than 70 signature shops in its dedicated to Fashion Avenue. To all shopaholics out there, this place is pure happiness Haha! But that’s not all, they also have the Dubai Fountain Show that is beautiful at night so be sure not to miss it.

———- SOUK AL BAHAR ———-
Souk al Bahar is just across the Dubai Mall which connects through a bridge that has the Burj Lake. If you wanna wonder and step back in time of the Old Arabia with a modern twist then this place is perfect. It is soulfully stylish and every hidden nook and cranny is very charming in the eyes. Tall archways and natural stone corridors grace its alleyways. It features over 100 shops and 22 restaurants. While most of the restaurants are situated on the waterfront promenade and has a nice view of The Dubai Fountain. Another tip is to book your restaurant early so you can get a good spot for the fountain show.

City Walk is the urban living destination where you can hang out with friends and family and they have wide selection of restaurants and cafes. It is a beautifully designed outdoor spaces with stunning views of the Burj Khalifa skyline. Most of the events happening here like fashion shows and a lot more. Of course, they also offer you with a mixed of local and international shops in the area. As you go strolling, you will notice the different street arts they have. This is an ideal place to escape from the busy city. The location of City Walk is not that far from Dubai Mall but I suggest to take a taxi rather than walking and it depends upon the weather.
