There are few other cities with as many shopping centers as Dubai! It is therefore not surprising that Dubai is home to some of the largest malls in the world. Here everybody gets his money's worth. Whether luxury brands or traditional brands like H&M and Zara - in Dubai's shopping malls everyone will find what they are looking for!

Although some malls in Dubai are dominated by luxury brands such as Hugo Boss, Dior or Versace, you should not be deterred by them if you're on a budget because you can also shop in Dubai very cheaply! Even if you don't want to buy anything, you will be fascinated by the sparkling gold in the souks or other great attractions.

Cheap Shopping is Possible Here

Dubai is a true shopping paradise. With a steadily growing number of malls and numerous side streets and bazaars, Dubai offers an inexhaustible choice. It has long been no secret that you can also get bargains in luxurious Dubai. Due to the low taxes and customs duties in Dubai, many clothes are offered much cheaper here. Above all, however, branded articles are offered more cheaply here in the shopping arcades than in most parts of Europe, for example. Clocks and electronic items can also be acquired in Dubai's Malls at favorable prices. If you are looking for a big bargain, you should go to the Dubai Outlet Mall or come to Dubai during the Dubai Shopping Festival (see below).

Of course, a visit to an Arab souk is also obligatory if you want to shop at a particularly low price. There you will mainly find jewelry, pashminas (a cloth made of cashmere or silk for draping over your shoulders) and bags at particularly attractive prices. Nowhere else in the world is gold as cheap as in Dubai. Often, surprisingly low prices can be found - trading is a matter of honor here. Ask in the souks at least for the best price for you ;-)
