Mall in Oman popular choice for tourists

Bawadi Mall, the largest shopping mall in Al Ain that was established in April 2009, has been a popular tourist attraction since it came into being. Spread over a massive 140,000 square metre plot, the Bawadi Mall houses top international brands, one of the reasons why the mall is frequented by tourists.
“Al Ain's gross lease area (GLA) is quite low, against other parts of the world, thus making it a fit candidate for absorbing further growth in the shopping and retail industries. A wave of new top brands is still arriving in the Middle East reflecting the vibrancy of the market,” said Khalid Shraim, the Marketing Manager. Many tourists in the mall at the time felt the same way: “We like the luxurious ambience. We were in Thailand and decided to conclude our visit in Al Ain. We found the decoration very distinguished and we will visit it again for sure,” said Abdullah Khalifah Mohd Ismaili, who was there with his family.
Bawadi Mall boasts international brands such as Zara, Mango, MAX , Marks & Spencer, Kotton, New look, H&M and ACE, and features over 380 retail outlets.
