One cannot escape the so-called “great shopping experiences” when coming to Dubai regardless of the purpose of the visit. It is a tax-free zone, after all, it does offer a great range of goods and brands that are usually cheaper than anywhere else in Europe. And Dubai is so “over the top” when it comes to shopping, it tries so hard that it almost makes you feel guilty if you don’t just “shop until you drop”!

Why coming to Dubai anyway if not for shopping and maybe to witness all those things that are “the tallest” in the world, “the most luxurious”, “the biggest”? So true!

Anyway, there is a little marvel, ingenious marketing maneuver in each and every one of various Dubai shopping malls. For instance, while you are strolling down the Fashion Avenue of enormous Dubai Mall – which consists of more than 1,000 shops, the same amount of restaurants with cuisines from around the globe, more than 220 jewelry shops, luxury hotel, modern hi-tech cinema, tremendous ice skating rink, etc. – you can also look at 33,000 tropical fish inside the enormous Dubai aquarium! Or even go scuba-diving with sharks and rays!

Who can keep track of the money or make sure not to overspend in such an environment, and – does it even matter?!

…And did I mention that Dubai Mall is the biggest in the world? Well, it is, of course, it is.
