I've been to many malls including Dubai Mall and Canal Walk would most likely be equivalent to that in my opinion. Lots of shops and a big food court. Everything from clothing shops to toy/gadget shops to massage rooms! There's cinemas and a gaming arcade to keep the kids busy. So basically there's something for everyone.

From waterfront it approximately took us 10minutes to reach Canal Walk by Uber. This places appears as a paradise for shopaholic people like me. Over 400store under 1 roof, wow!! The Architecture is spectacular. Canal Walk’s restaurants, cafés and coffee shops, serve a wide range of delicacies which has helped it in evolving as a Must Do attraction for tourist.... More

Shopping in here was quite an experience- and getting time to rest and relax in the green zones as I will call them was great. The directions and guidance to the shops and stores in the centre are state-of- the art. Great Place to spend some time and pick up an item.

I love Canal Walk it really caters for everyone. We were lucky in that they had the Ice Age Exhibition there which was an absolute blast. We enjoyed the train ride as well through the mall. AND don't give the 'build a bear' a miss!

Yes, just another shopping centre but the guest reception staff was very helpful and friendly when we needed senior citizen parking for my parents and a wheel chair to rent (free of charge) for my mother. Also the staff at the Lindt shop and also the Sausage Saloon was very very friendly and a pleasure to deal with.

I love this mall and was fortunate enough to do the Ice Age themed ice rides with my daughters- they had so much fun. There are loads of stores to choose from and a wide variety of restaurants or casual take away options also. You can definitely find most things you are looking to shop for at Canal Walk.

Canal walk is a nice mall but if coming from Europe you won't see the usual brands (Zara, H&M etc) are not there. Many sports brands and a big food court. Some nice restaurants within the mall (Tashas and Col Caccio are delicious). It's a nice mall with lots of light which makes for a pleasant day of shopping.
