24-hour shopping in Dubai

We check out Dubai Mall at 2am

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

Our city loves to shop. Fact. But we have to admit we were dubious as to how many people would flock to malls in the small hours when they were open 24 hours over Eid al-Adha. To find out, we popped to The Dubai Mall at 2am last Friday to have a look for ourselves. To our surprise, it was pretty busy (but by no means packed). Aside from bleary-eyed shop attendants and some surprisingly sprightly live performers, there were a generous gaggle of people meandering around. As such, we’re expecting more 24-hour shopping bonanzas in the future.
