Most shopping malls in Dubai are built in order to serve customers but Al Bustan shopping centre is mainly serving those who stay at its Residence part. Yet, contrary to this, the Al Bustan Centre is quite big even though it is not even a midsized mall according to Dubai standards.

Al Bustan Centre is located a little bit further from the actual city centre points of Dubai. Therefore, we don’t really suggest you to do great tours to get here, but in case you need to spend a long time in transit and have nothing much to do, the Al Bustan Centre offers a nice refreshing walk and some good food along with the shopping experience.
