Festival City Mall is another mall located away from the centre of the city.Has various dining and shopping options in addition to the movie theatre like similar malls. However the unique feature is its waterfront which becomes a focal point due to its laser/light and fountain shows in the evening.

The biggest pull is Ikea and the Marks and Spencer. Other major retailers are also present making it a good choice of mall to spend a good evening. dine in one of the resturants or the food court and enjoy a stroll om the water front with the live water and fire show. Overall a good experience.

I visited this mall with my wife and 3years old kid. We visited with the aim of watching the popular fire laser and fountain shows which happen every day in the evening. We watched the shows from the cheese cake factory restaurant. The shows were worth watching and spending some good time. The mall is also big and had a... More

This is a spacious mall, immaculately kept, clean and light. Plenty of shops, lots of choice; clothing, opticians, jewellery, shoes, luggage, IKEA and plenty more. There is a comfortable cinema. The best aspect are the restaurants and cake shops. The mall opens out to a pleasant waterside walk with a fountain and lighting show.

Has many of the big shops including Ikea. Young children can always be drooped off at the safe play areas so parents can shop at peace. Has a diverse food court and a couple if dine-in restaurants .

Dubai Festival City is a big complex of hotels and shops including many restaurants. This review is not about the shopping. After dark on the hour there is a light show outside. The lasers and lights are projected into a mist of water and nearby buildings. Combined with flames and sound its a very impressive free show. Great entertainment for... More
