Is there more to shopping in Dubai than just brand-name stores?

Abdulla, United Arab Emirates

yes shopping malls are the main destination for shopping but due to the weather, in winter you might consider visiting the walk in JBR and City Walk in Jumairah as well. both of the places will provide you with very nice outdoor shopping experience.

Dubai has many malls. The biggest being Dubai Mall and Mall of The Emirates. Both are perfect for any type of shopping you want to do, whether it's high brand shopping like Louis Vuitton or Mulberry, or if you want the high street fashion like Topshop or Miss Selfridge. You are bound to find something for everyone in either of these malls. The Souk Madinet is perfect for the more authentic shopping and the art work there is beautiful.

The beach means different things to different people. What did the beach in Dubai mean to you?

Dubai has long beaches with great facilities which is not available in the most famous beached in the world like san tropez and malibu beach, you can swim in JBR public beach and you can find famous restaurant chains next to the beach like cheesecake factory and a lot of other famous brands, thats all besides out door cinema and gym.

for me Dubai is the safest beach as there are no sharks or so animals and the temp is encourging you to visit the beach all year times.

Jumirah Beach Hotel was a great place i staid there for 3 days i didn't went to anywhere else. The hotel, pool (also you can enter the wild wady pool for free), 360, Madinat Jumirah restaurants, coffees and lounges - using one of the hotel facilities (a club car).

i really loved that experience i would recommend JBH for everyone who really want to enjoy his/her time

As I did not see much of Dubai I guess it is not fare to judge it so harshly. Even house hunting was a nightmare for me as what is advertised on Dubizzle is not necessarily what you get? Depending on your budget you have no chance of getting value for money. Look at International City for e.g. miles away from your workplace Business Bay/Dubai and the accommodation I went to look at was terrible and transport is not accessible besides using taxis. This is just to name one. What amazes me are the Buildings! beautiful especially in the heart of Dubai, awesome! Dubai is an expensive city and if you thinking of relocating, make sure you can afford the good life.

Why do you recommend Dubai for food?

My trip to Dubai was mainly for the food! As a California native, I am spoiled for the best fresh foods and I found all my hometown favorites available. California rolls and shrimp rolls from the Sushi Counter at Dubai mall, Shrimp tacos from Baja Fresh at the Dubai mall, and really good chinese food with the best fried chicken ever at Magic Wok. I can't find any of these foods as I currently live and work in Qatar. Bon appetite!

Desert Safari. My local contact / driver in Dubai now is Ali. He works for Arabian Nights tours and travels. He was our tour guide in January. And he is just amazing, very kind, he had shown us around and was super fun. His knowledge about local markets is amazing and the best part he has a beautiful majestic, brand new SUV. We felt we had five star treatment right from the begining. This man was super super punctual. So if you are in Dubai you should try to get in touch with him. In fact you can simply take my name if you believe in haggling. :-)

Desert Safari, Aqua Venture, Dinner on the Ocean, Wild Wadi, Ferrari World, Sky Dive Dubai, Ski Dubai in Emirates Mall are some amazing places Dubai boasts of.

How is tourism changing Dubai?

Dubai within the last decade has been transformed from a very nice city to become an international hub of tourism, this was reflected in the quality of new projects opened in the city and the standard of services provided. the welcoming nature is a tradition for Arabs and Dubai is trying hard to reflect that on the tourism experience you will get if you visit.

What should you avoid to make the most of the nightlife in Dubai?

Avoid planning to drink at the venue. The prices will most definitely be high. Call the club/bar in advance and find out what their entry requirements are. Some require an good ratio of male:female and some will not allow you in without reserving a table which can run anywhere from $300 up.

The Souk Madinet has a few tourists walking around but you don't get that "tourist feel". This is down to the location being so beautiful and peaceful, everyone is concentrating on this and you get the authentic Dubai feel.

What's the secret to sampling all the diverse food Dubai has to offer?

Saladin, Saudi Arabia

Avoid hotel restaurants if you can do without the Alcohol. Food quality and value is better. Alcohol is available in venues attached to hotels only and carry hefty services charges and premiums. Some local options provide a better more cultural experience and value for money. For example, go to Ravi Indian Restaurant if you like Indian. Go to Istanbul Flower on Sheikh Zayed (Next to Safestway) for best Turkish (Try Iskender). Al Hallab for best Lebanese food (Emirates and Dubai Mall or original on Al Garhoud Road). Another good Lebanese option is Al Safadi on Al-Rigga Road in Deira). For best steaks I recommend the JW Mariott in Deira. For good Asian go to Wagamama. For Persian Food go to Sadaf on Sheikh Zayed or in Deira.
