40 million square feet
of shopping...okay, stop drooling. It's no joke, though. Dubai is in the development stages of planning the world's largest shopping zone
, complete with several different malls and both underground and on-street shopping areas. It will also all be linked to Bawadi's 31 hotels for easy access and convenience for all the millions of shoppers they're hoping to attract.
No word on when exactly this massive project will be completed, but as motivated as they seem to be over there to attract tourists I'm sure they're not going to waste any time!
