Dubai

Shopping

What are the shopping facilities like in Dubai? Are UK retail stores operating in Dubai a reflection of the UK stores? Do they provide the same stock, are they as busy and are they more expensive?

The shopping scene has been changing in Dubai as the city expand it's horizon. I have seen dirt tracks in the city turn into mega malls for the masses.Now shopping in modern Dubai, they have international brands of all kinds of goods for sale. Shops from New York , London and Paris has open up to where the money is. Dubai now boast that they have indeed have one of the largest malls in the world, just like Mall of America in the USA. There are several malls also within miles of each other. I just hope that business can keep on supporting these mega malls that they have built. I myself like to go to the mom and pop shops in the old city and haggle and talk with shop owners. There is a big divide with the haves and have nots. cheers tommy x

One of the things that make Dubai a great place to go shopping is the fact that it is a duty-free port that low or mostly no duties or tariffs imposed on foreign products. For the bargain hunter it is a field teeming with game so thick that even taking aim is superfluous.

Welcome Dubai forum section) over the last few years many VT members have asked this question is Shopping in Dubai expanse? It really depends if Gulf Arab Citizen then it will have good prices.

If you’re coming from Europe which has 2 – 3 sales a year then yes it will be expanse to you.

So my answer will be its expanses if coming from Europe because your use to sales likes winter and summer sales but if Gulf Arab citizens it’s fine.

Dubai has shopping fes) that takes place once year I hear you can get good deals. Please remember most of Arab world Imports goods from Asia and West) think will be bit costly but when your holiday – just bring enough funds you will have good time.

Hi, welcome to VT.

Shopping in Dubai is truly international. There's a mixture of local shopping areas, souks and new malls. The designer/brand name stores are usually in the malls, including a lot of UK shops where prices vary. They often leave the UK price tag on and they show that some items are cheaper in Dubai, some the same, some more expensive.

But don't just think about UK shops, Dubai has a vast choice of products from all over the world so you have much more choice.
