The fashion capitals of New York and Paris are represented in the two anchor department stores of this stupendous retail experience, the largest mall in the world. Bookended by Bloomingdale’s and Galeries Lafayette, more than 1,200 shops proffer everything from high fashion and luxe beauty supplies to electronics and home furnishings to an annual visitor base of more than 80 million. Part of the massive Downtown Dubai complex—which also encompasses the Burj Khalifa—the mall counts such international brands as Bulgari, Chloé, Christian Louboutin and Louis Vuitton among its tenants. While there, be sure to stop by one of the property’s more than 200 food outlets for a pick-me-up, including the French patisserie Angelina, the Italian mega-market Eataly and the Manhattan favorite Magnolia Bakery.
