Shopping in Dubai Airport

by Giddygolfer

My friend and I are travelling to South Africa via Dubai on an emirates flight from UK. We have a 9 hour stop over in Dubai from around 2300 - 0800 hrs. Will the airport shops be open and will we be able to have an alcoholic drink? ALso we would love to purchase a replica designer bag each. Can anyone recommend a shop. We would be wary of leaving the airport at night as we are 2 females who dont know the area surrounding the airport and probably wont have enough time to leave the airport anyway. Thank for any information.

Hi Liz,

Firstly Dubai is extremely safe for Females but you won't be able to do anything outside the airport between those hours anyway as bars etc close by 2/3am. Shops close at midnight on weekends.

Dubai airport doesn't sell replica handbags, only real ones unfortunately! The fake ones are in Karama. There are several bars to choose from that are all open 24/7. You can smoke in the ones in Terminal 1 (simple walking distance from terminal 3). Duty free will also be open all night. Will you have access to a lounge? Will be much more comfortable!

Hope this helps.

Thanks Nattybabe for your quick response.
We did think that replica bags in the airport would be frowned upon. Its just unfortunate that shops surrounding the airport will be closed. We hope to book in to one of the emirates lounges ( I believe you can book by the hour). Our travel agent also said there were plenty of quiet areas around the airport. At least we can have a couple of drinks and shop to make the time go quicker.
Many thanks for the info.

Hi there,
As mentioned in the previous post the time that you are in Dubai all the shops in Karama are closed and being late your best option is to stay inside the airport. Also a very comfortable option (payable) is to use Marhaba Lounge, which details about it is mentioned on their official web site on the following URL:


Safe trip and good luck.

Well, there aren't many public "quiet places" unfortunately... it's one of the things that Dubai Airport is mostly criticised for - you'll see hundreds of people just lying around on the floor, it almost looks like something of a refugee camp at times!

If you want to have a drink (and possibly smoke) then best head into the IRISH VILLAGE. I can't remember which gate it's near but there are signs for it.

Travel Tips for Dubai


by Siddha3th

With each passing day, project and monumental skyscraper - the divisions between old and new Dubai get noticeably more marked. It's like being in two different cities really, and with the onset of time, you get the feeling that never the 'twain shall meet. Old Dubai - characterized by its crowded streets, abra rides, graced by the ever graceful creek is almost a parallel universe away from New Dubai - all gleaming towers reaching into the sky, freehold properties for expats willing to finally call Dubai home, amidst the general principle that bigger, bolder and more ridiculous necessarily equals best.

This is not a sermon for old vs. new. Nor is it a rant against rich vs. poor. It's just that the gleaming facade of Dubai seems desperate and destined to wash away all remnants of any remaining character whatsoever. It's becoming a rich man's playground, with all the vacousness such a hurriedly coveted tag brings. Glide by the city on a Friday morning or better, really late at night. When you won't be swamped by traffic and awful radio. See which of the 2 Dubai's you seem more drawn to. See which of the 2 cities you'd prefer your story to be told in.

Budget travel - Hotel Apartments

by mstali

Try hotel apartments, if you are travelling in a group. It is more economical and you have an option of cooking your own favourite meals to your taste. Most supermarkets are well stocked with fresh and canned foods local and imported. Try fresh local fish , but you need to go to the fish market in Diera Dubai near the Gold souk(market). There are some stalls were you may find local fisherman selling local fish. Facility for cleaning the fish is available . You can get your fish fried in a restaurant at Shark restaurant(located in meat & poultry market) in the same market near the parking lot.

Mercato Shopping Mall

by SWFC_Fan about Mercato Shopping Mall

The Mercato shopping mall exhibits an Italian-influenced design, from its ornate exterior to the pastel-coloured shop fronts, balconies and archways that make up its interior. A large painting of Venice's Grand Canal appears above one of the entrances.

Opening times:

Sat - Thurs: 10am -10pm
Fri: 2pm -10pm In common with the other major malls in Dubai, the Mercato offers a good range of fashion shops, electronics shops, household goods shops, jewellers and a food court featuring the usual fast food joints.


by Siddha3th about ZINC

Ironic. This place shuts down, and I get the urge to get off my you-know-what and actually post a tip about it. Typical. Well, as Joni Mitchell said - "Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got till it's gone." Now while Zinc might not have been the stuff to inspire priceless lyrical poetry, it certainly had the goods to pack a punch in its heyday. And this tip's just a little nod to those heady memories, in a way.

3 floors of music, food and utter mayhem, Zinc was Dubai's lone flagbearer of a frills-free, bouncy night out on town circa 2002. A restaurant-cum-bar-cum-venue gig, it invariably packed in almost ALL of Dubai's partying massive, back in the days when our dusty little desert outpost was just that. A sudden deluge of nightspots and hotel-based watering holes, meant an inevitable dimming of Zinc's popularity. Its Chemical Reactions Nights and kicking resident bands notwithstanding, the writing was pretty much on its neon-lit walls.

And so, in August of 2006, we bid farewell to dearly departed Zinc. You were a good friend in times of need, and will be missed. We look forward to your successor, something much flashier and refurbished in every sense, no doubt. It will take your place at the Crowne Plaza, but not the place in our hearts. We won't cry over your death, but will down a potent bullfrog in your honour. We know you wouldn't have wanted it any other way :)

A Great Arabic Experience...

by TracyLB about Al Hadheerah Desert Restaurant

It took about 45 minutes by shuttle bus from the Jumeirah Beach Resort..When we arrived at the resort, we followed a roadway of torches in the pure desert darkness.....Upon arrival we were immediately seated at a our table and served 7 Arabic salads, and then walked around the open air buffet and ate everything that you can imagine. The restaurant has live cooking stations with wood-fired ovens, spit roasts and Arabic bread ovens...There was also belly dancers, shisha, henna painters, camel rides and everything else Arabic..The decor was of natural stone rock walls..It really was a unique dining experience in the desert!! Honestly, there was so much to pick from that i don't remember!!
