Dubai Mall’s app can now help you from getting lost.

Similar to a GPS navigation system concept like Google Maps, The Dubai Mall app has come up with its own navigation system, wherein visitors can select the store they want to go to and the app will guide with a route.

Recently, Dubai Mall introduced a sleeping service too.

According to tour website Touropia, Dubai Mall is the third largest shopping mall with a size of

3.77 million sq ft, which is equivalent of 50 football pitches! However, walking that much can take a toll on the body, which has led to the introduction of the sleeping service. It’s a lounge with 12 sleeping pods available and visitors can take a nap by renting the sleeping pod on an hourly basis. For every hour, the sleeping pod costs dhs 40 and renting a pillow will cost you dhs 10.
