The little sister of The Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates is no less popular for shopping, dining and family fun. The dramatic indoors ski slope – the largest of its kind in the Middle East – rises steeply from the building’s roof and has runs for skiing, boarding and sledding, plus interactive meet-and-greet sessions with the snow centre's resident penguin colony. Next door, the Dubai Community Theatre and Arts Centre (DUCTAC) hosts inspired local performances and international acts. Check into the adjacent five-star Kempinski Hotel for easy access during the manic Dubai Shopping Festival, a month of frenzied sales and reductions held every January.
