The Dubai Mall just like most other buildings and projects in Dubai is large. No one can accuse Dubai of thinking small. Dubai Mall is on the same scale as Dubai Palm Island or Burj Khalifa, the highest tower in the world. Dubai is the city where the world’s movers and shakers can go and live, shop, and enjoy themselves. Dubai has quickly positioned itself as the global epicenter of people who are looking for the best things in life. Based on a master plan that seeks to completely transform this part of the world’s economy, Dubai is showing the rest of the world how big thinking can lead to big results. The Dubai Mall is definitely a solid example of that thinking.
Bringing the world’s goods in one place
One particularly helpful way of thinking of the Dubai mall is to think of it as the modern version of Silk Road bazaars. The Silk Road, if you remember, is actually a vast trading network that connected China to Europe through the Middle Eastern Central Asia. The Silk Road was a trading platform that moved high value goods from all parts of the world to markets that appreciated these goods. One cannot help but think of Silk Road bazaars when one walks through the massive Dubai Mall. It seems the best and the finest of what the world has to offer in terms of consumer goods is located in the Dubai Mall. We are of course talking about luxury to mid end goods. The Dubai mall is not your flea market. The Dubai mall is not a bargain basement shop where people try to trade quality for low price. No sir, the Dubai Mall is all about quality.
What really sets this mall apart from other markets in the world is the fact that there is a sense that all items for sale here is subject to discriminating taste. This means the items must look good, must provide the best value, and must not be cheap in terms of quality.

Its sampling from global cuisine ranged from recognizable 5-star restaurants all the way to global fast food brands. Here are just some of the names that the Dubai Mall bring under one roof: The Cheesecake Factory, TGI Fridays, IHOP, Outback Steakhouse, P.F. Changs, Alforno, California Pizza Kitchen and Chili’s among many others.
In terms of fast food, you can see Subway, the biggest fast food chain in the United States. Global brands like McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King, you name it. Regardless which part of the world you come from, when you walk in to Dubai Mall and you want to eat, the names will be very familiar. Most importantly, the quality will be very familiar and exactly the same as you enjoyed it from your corner of the world.
