Here be Dragons in Dubai

  • “But it is one thing to read about dragons and another to meet them.”
    ― Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard of Earthsea

It is one thing to read about DragonMart, and another thing to slay it.  DragonMart is a gigantic conglomeration of everything that was ever made in China brought to Dubai. (Take a look at the couches in the pictures – really, can those be found *anywhere* else?) It’s overwhelming, crazy, and well… you just have to experience for yourself.  The Mall itself is shaped like a long linear dragon, and when you reach the tail of the first – guess what?  There is DragonMart 2.  And you guessed it, DragonMart 3 is coming.   All I can say is wear comfortable shoes.  You don’t need a sack lunch – plenty of food!  You probably want to eat CHINESE food (that would make sense, wouldn’t it?) but we found ourselves eating Filipino pinoy fried chicken at a place called Max’s (DragonMart 2…).  I think the best fried chicken I have ever eaten.  So go – slay the shopping dragon that is DragonMart.  Just make sure you don’t get lost in “here be dragons” territory!
