THIS IS THE Dubai Mall — an absolutely massive shopping centre in Dubai, UAE that’s part of the $20 billion Burj Khalifa complex.
It first opened in 2008 to much fanfare, and it boasts a variety of things to do aside from shop at its 600+ stores. The centre has a 22-screen cinema, a replica of London’s Regent Street, an Olympic-sized ice skating rink and much more.
The mall is now the world’s most-visited shopping destination, having attracted upwards of 54 million visitors in 2011.
It has such a reputation that Apple may be interested in opening its first store in the Middle East there, according to the Dubai Chronicle.
