Spacious, modern and air conditioned, Abu Dhabi's malls are a welcome
escape from the summer heat and offer a world of choice when it comes to
shopping. In Abu Dhabi, malls are a place to catch up with friends or
for a family outing - and the fun can go on until late at night.
With their imaginative designs and wide range of outlets, shopping malls
are perennially popular. The bigger malls buzz with activity as people
meet, eat, pose and parade. During festive occasions such as Eid or
Ramadan, malls are venues for special events such as dance or cultural
shows, often featuring international acts. They also hold numerous
raffles, often with huge prizes such as luxury cars or cash.
