The Dubai Mall is celebrating its first Christmas. The mall is in full splendour. Key areas of the mall such as Fashion Avenue, Aquarium Walk and Dubai Ice Rink have come alive with specially themed décor, tailored to the Christmas attractions.

Despite not being a traditional shopping mall, Souk Madinat Jumeirah has been decorated to look like a Christmas card. With miniature stalls selling Christmas goodies, the Souk Madinat is worth the visit during this festive season.

The Dubai Outlet Mall has lined up promotions with everyday discounts of 30-90 per cent and great bargains. Ibn Battuta Mall and Dubai City Center also have line-ups of fun activities especially catering to the younger crowd.
