The Wafi Mall was opened in 1991 and it’s one of the first of the many malls that subsequently grew in Dubai. It has different varieties of Restaurants , ranging from Italian, Indian, local Emarati and Lebanese etc. They even have a Tennis court, a wellness Spa which is called the Cleopatra Spa and this mall is connected to a Raffles Dubai Hotel.
Aside from that, you will see also in this mall the “Ripleys believe it or not “ stuff and it’s so exciting that I recommend that every visitor that comes should not miss to see this rather unique and beautiful place. It has a style of its own that’s not common and the inherited pattern of its construction appears to emerge from ancient Egypt.
All in all : Wafi Mall – a MUST see place 🙂
