  • Traditional Arabic style mall linked with Dubai mall. Carpets, souvenirs and lifestyle shops are here. Having dining restaurants with water front. Atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxing. Must visit place.

Situated in Downtown Dubai’s beating heart, it is enchantingly Arabesque – a lively marketplace that offers the city’s residents and tourists alike an enthralling experience of shopping, entertainment and dining in intriguing contrast to The Dubai Mall, to which it connects via a bridge that spans the breadth of Burj Lake
