The Dubai Mall : United Arab Emirates : The largest shopping mall in the world, based on total area size! WORLD : SENSE : EXPLORE : MORE! Enjoy great times! 🙂
The Dubai Mall

The Dubai Mall is the world’s largest shopping mall based on total area and sixth largest by gross leasable area. Located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, it is part of the 20-billion-dollar Burj Khalifa complex, and includes 1,200 shops. Access to the mall is provided via Doha Street, rebuilt as a double-decker road in April 2009.

Twice delayed, Dubai Mall opened on November 4, 2008, with about 600 retailers, marking the world’s largest-ever mall opening in retail history. However it is not the largest in gross leasable space, and is surpassed in that category by several malls including the South China Mall, which is the world’s largest, Golden Resources Mall, SM City North Edsa, and SM Mall of Asia.

The Dubai Mall has recorded a visitor turn-out of more than 60,000 tickets sold for the Dubai Aquarium and Discovery Centre in the first five days, following its opening. The Dubai Mall hosted over 37 million visitors in its first year of operation, and attracts more than 750,000 visitors every week.

Thoughts about Photography…..

There is a difference between looking at photographs–which has become a common cultural practice in connection with reading newspapers–or seeing the image. The latter refers to reconstructing the photograph by exploring the deep structure of the image–which involves the application of practical knowledge and creative insights and relies on the cultural or historical consciousness of the reader. Looking is the visual routine of readers, seeing is the visual practice of the literate. The professional or artistic disposition of photographers reflects a commitment to the image as an expression of ideas or feelings that are beyond words.
