Dubai Mall, burj al Khalifa and Souk Al Bahar

Every one has recommended me to go top of burj al khalifa observatory deck at 124th floor . Yeah Burj al khalifa is fantastic but bit scary of that much height. SO i chose to stay down to explore Dubai Mall  and did a lil bit discount shopping too, later on at the Souk Al Bahar situated in front of dubai Mall. It is a small arabian style Souk ( mean market or bazar). Later on we chose to sit in a cafeteria in front of lake and waited until 7pm for dancing fountain. It was awesome experience with dancing fountain.

Souk is a distinctive shopping area with wide walkways, featuring jewellery shops, accessory outlets, traditional Arab clothing and handicrafts store. I also found Rashk e Kashmir Shop they offer traditional kashmiri design shawls and carpets. On other side of this souk walk ways is taxi stand.

Dubai Mall indoor water features like waterfall and big aquarium is also interesting. If you have time to explore much then you may buy a ticket to get inside the aquarium tunnels to see the big sharks and other sea creatures inside as well to take a ride.Explore many species of fish and marine life at dubai aquarium and underwater zoo like the crocodiles and lion fish.

Mall is quite big and it's not possible to cover all in one day coz you might definitely get tired so better to chose selected options and floors only.

If you love shopping then it's truly a paradise. Dubai shopping festival season started from 1 january up to 1 feb 2016 . I saw many branded stores have discount rates on selected items only. For example if an item earlier price was 700 dirham then you may get at discount price on 400 dirham or so. Dubai is truly a luxurious life style destination and is a pretty wealthy place.
