I personally know very few people who don’t like shopping. To be fair, what is there not to like about SHOPPING?! They say money can’t buy happiness, but money can buy new shoes and that’s basically the same thing, am I right? Where better to spend a day shopping for shoes and everything else than in an enormous mall!
Some shopping malls in the world try to make your shopping trips so exquisite that they are ready to provide you not only with high-quality clothing, but unique and extraordinary attractions and dining options.

The Mall of America
Let’s begin our list with the mall located just around the corner – in Minnesota.

Here you can find more than 400 different brand name stores, a huge cinema, and get ready for it – a real theme park, a wedding chapel, an aquarium, a miniature golf course and a comedy club. So you can spend your whole day here shopping and still not get to enjoy everything this mall has to offer. It is also believed, that The Mall of America gets more visitors than any other mall in the world too. With the vast amenities it offers, it’s not wonder why!
SM Mall of Asia
If you ever happen to travel to the Philippines, we strongly recommend you stop by the SM Mall of Asia.

The Mall of the Emirates
In the Dubai, one of the most magnificent cities in the world, you should also spend some time exploring the enormous and beautiful mall of the Emirates. This mall was specifically built to attract tourists from over the world, and therefore, here you can shop at a wide range of stores, which some of them are pretty luxurious and high-class. With 6.5 million squares the Mall of the Emirates contains more than 450 stores, an indoor ski park, a cinema, a large community theater, an art gallery and so many more entertainment you will forget that outer world exists!
Wafi Mall is definitely one of the most amazing malls in the world. Despite the fact that this mall is also located in Dubai, Wafi Mall was designed to look exactly like an Egyptian pyramid; therefore, you can get the idea of décor there easily. The mall has hieroglyphic-covered columns, a pyramid and a large statue of the pharaoh named Ramses in its gorgeous courtyard. In addition, this unique mall can be proud of its several themed areas, a variety of retail shops, restaurants, a theme park, even a luxury hotel, and a petting zoo altogether with other amazing and exquisite entertainment options.
The last mall we would like to mention is located in Istanbul, Turkey. This vast and beautiful mall owns a huge glass roof which lets natural day light and one of the largest clocks in the world. However, apart from an enormous number of retail stores and restaurants, Istanbul Cevahir has the astonishing number of 12 cinemas, a roller coaster and other entertainment options to please guests who want a break from shopping and eating and spend their free time doing something fun.
These enormous and extravagant malls put all the outlet malls and local shopping malls to shame. You might not be able to visit them everyday, but it’s worth planning a vacation to see one of these beautiful shopping malls in person!
