Dubai Mall charms more than Disney World



Dubai: Surpassing annual footfall figures achieved by the world’s most popular tourist destinations and key international airports, The Dubai Mall is once again the world’s most-visited lifestyle destination, welcoming over 80 million visitors in 2014.

For the fourth consecutive year, the mall continues to appeal to global visitors and retail enthusiasts as a must-visit destination with its world class lifestyle, retail and entertainment offering.

Mohamad Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Malls, said: ‘This is another historic milestone for Dubai, with a record 80 million visitors to The Dubai Mall in 2014. No other global tourist destination or even airports, which traditionally have the highest footfall, have achieved the significant visitor arrivals The Dubai Mall recorded.’

‘With wholesale and retail accounting for nearly 30 per cent of Dubai’s real GDP, The Dubai Mall continues to make a sterling contribution to our city’s diversified economic growth.” More info
