Wafi Mall

Address: Sheikh Rashid Rd , Dubai, United Arab Emirates

About

Westerners mistakenly bypass palatial Wafi in favour of the behemoth shopping malls, which explains why it’s so quiet. It’s their loss. It may have once resembled a third-rate airport terminal, but the newer wing’s stained-glass pyramids are stunning and the entire complex, encompassing the superb Pharaohs’ Club, is a pure Egyptian-cum-Las-Vegas-style extravaganza with sphinxes, pharaohs, and columns decorated with mock hieroglyphics. While Emirati women love Wafi’s fancy French stores like Chanel and Givenchy, you may well prefer sussing out lesser-known regional boutiques or stocking up on underwear at M&S (the best view of the stained glass is from just outside the main entrance of M&S).
Duck into the mall’s basement to browse around Souq Khan Murjan, which also has stunning decor with a stained-glass ceiling and plenty of decorative wood. Although there is a good, if pricey, selection of crafts and goods from around the Arabian world here, alas, it too is practically deserted. Refuelling stops include Asha’s and Noble House at the adjacent Raffles hotel.
