The Japanish-based Kinokuniya at the top floor of Dubai Mall is the largest book store in the UAE. So, if you are looking for new books or magazines, this is the right place to pay a visit. Highly recommended!

I spent over an hour in the book store. I have seen more better book stores as prices were so high. I wouldn't recommend going there as it is very pricey and staff were not friendly.

If you cannot find a certain book in a bookshop or library, for sure you will be able to get it in kinkuniya. Have visited the branch in Dubai and also in Kuala Lumpur and surely the best bookstore ever.
