So Arabs like shopping in Dubai... no suprises there really considering it is the logistical hub for the Middle East and most people going in/out have to stop here at sometime in their travelling lives.

But what do people from the rest of the world think about shopping in Dubai is really the big question.... Do they find it repeatative and hackneyed throughout the different malls? Would they return? Does the place have atmosphere or is it soul-less? These are the real questions that need answering..... not some survey that asks loaded questions and illicits virtually only one possible response....
