    after going to the Expo global village isn't enough for us :D
    the shows were not to mess
    we went to half of the kids shows
    and the stunt show for a reasonable fee
    the Bosnian kebab is a must
    the entry fee is so cheap
    nice experience
    but the countries shops becoming more dull and not interesting almost the same products

    Excellent place to experience old and new. The souk is designed like an old market but it is covered and airconditioned with ample washrooms and other utilities. The parking is free for first two hours. Roam around and shop for traditional items and antiques (mostly the shops have these) - its not a typical mall of dubai.
    You can go out and see the canals/boat rides. Watch the iconic burj al arab and enjoy coffee. The prices of eateries are high (as you can imagine) but I found the items sold in the souk at reasonable prices.

    Summer heat and Malls of Dubai, a never ending love story. So Dubai Festival City Mall, what do you have to offer
    1. Thumbs up : If you are on a shopping spree this is the place. From all Brands (even Brands for Less) to Hypermarkets (Carrefour, Lulu) to Ikea to everything you want. If you are a foodie from every fast food joint you can think of to some fine dining. (Cheesecake factory, Nando, Chillis etc etc. Spoilt for choices. Gosh, I wanted to dine 4- 5 times in one night)
    2. Thumbs Down : Won't go nitpicking. Festival City you are spared here, Although a better attraction for kids would be ideal (Fabyland sucks and Bounce is overrated) DFC you need to pick your game up here
    3. Wow Factor : Light and Sound Show was good. So much to shop and dine makes time (and also money) fly.
    4. Dial M for Money : Here you can spend a fortune on useless things but also can get some steal deals. (I ended up doing both and my wallet was in tears). There are so may attractive places to shop and dine, so beware. You have been warned
    5. 5point Experience Gauge : This place is worth spending a sunday evening. Shop, dine and play (give us better playing options DFC, do you hear).
    My rating : Go, get it

    A very visually attractive place
    Lots of shopping
    Lots of restaurants
    Great to have breakfast, lunch and dinner and dessert all in one place and each restaurant gives you a complete different experience

    Nice mall right on the Marina, with several happening stores and restaurants. A smallish food court though with barely 7-8 options, though can enjoy the view with the seating area overlooking the marina. Avoid the overpriced food stalls on the marina walk right outside the mall!

    a lot of stalls of what looked like the same thing. Sales guys were a bit pushy, but friendly. I felt rude ignoring them, but trying to engage in any small talk was also fruitless. We just really weren't in the market to buy, but we wanted to see what the souk was like.

    This is a massive complex covering a few square kilometres and it will probably take a few days to explore. I was there for only a few hours and was amazed at the range of goods for sale. Some malls are air conditioned and look very classy but others are quite messy and not very comfortable to shop in. Prices are only so-so. I found cheaper priced merchandise in Dream Land Dept Store in Baniyas Square. Location wise it is not very accessible unless you drive. We had to take a taxi to the nearest metro to get back to our lodgings.

    We went as advised with arms and legs covered , we could see why a lady in long shorts were been called sexy ect. The fabric I wanted to buy was of poor quality and
    I looked in the many shops. It was clean and lots of stores.

    We came to Dubai to celebrate our wedding with family. Having grown up in Dubai I wanted to get my engagement ring made there for sentimental value.
    When we arrived at the gold and diamond Park we were overwhelmed with the number of shops but having read a lot of reviews before arriving we decided to visit Passion Jewellers and I am so glad we did.
    We were served by Bhupendra. He was amazing throughout the whole process. I wanted the ring itself to match and fit with my wedding band. I had to leave this with them and within 3 days they contacted my Husband to let him know the ring was ready. When we arrived I felt the ring was slightly too small. Bhupendra insisted this was not a problem and had it resized within half an hour. He took time to show us where the rings were made and discussed the whole design process with us. Not only that he then made sure we were driven back to our villa.
    When we arrived home we had the ring valued for insurance purposes and found it was worth a considerable amount more than what we paid.
    All in all a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend!

    The place is very different from the malls or the supermarkets but the people are quiet pushy and aggressive
