Dubai Mall is not your regular neighbourhood shopping centre. In the first instance, it’s the largest in the world with a vast expanse of air-conditioned stores, restaurants and other amenities and attractions.
This city in the United Arab Emirates is not a place where things are done by halves. This consumer paradise also boasts a spectacular waterfall which is studded with stately, athletic male figures diving down into the water, and is worthy of several photographs. Here is just one which captures what is quite an impressive piece of art.
The Waterfall is also billed as a meeting place for mall shoppers – a much-needed landmark in a huge place which is very easy to lose yourself in.

Today’s Dubai is so different to the one I grew up in over 20 years ago. I remember when they built the very first shopping centre. It’s still there by the Ambassador Hotel. Nowhere near as fancy as Dubai Mall.
Oh yes, I bet it’s changed beyond all recognition. They’re still putting up all manner of buildings. Old Dubai and its high rises look positively shabby now!
Great shot! Almost thought it was real for a second there…!
Thank you! Now that would be something. But still very impressive for a shopping centre.
I was just there yesterday! Dubai is rather amazing. Heading home to the states tonight after five great days.
It’s astounding but getting around the city without an air-conditioned car is a real slog! Have a safe trip back to the US. Thanks for coming by to comment, Mark.
