Dubai MallFree: All time

Even if visiting malls isn’t your idea of vacation, you may want to reconsider this. The Dubai Mall is the world’s largest shopping mall. This is also where you’ll have access to the largest aquarium, the tallest building and the biggest dancing fountain in the world. Unfortunately, the largest aquarium – Dubai Aquarium – is not free. However, you’ll get a pretty good glimpse of its grandeur from the entrance. As for the tallest building – Burj Khalifa -, you’ll have to pay to get to the observatory, but viewing from below is free. Last but not least, the biggest fountain – Dubai Fountain is indeed free of charge and it also has scheduled water and light shows.
