Wafi City

If you live in or are visiting the United Arab Emirates, you simply can’t miss the huge pyramid at Garhoud, Dubai:  the Wafi City.

Shaped like a pyramid, the Raffles Dubai is a USD 140 million worth of luxury hotel, with a total of 19 floors.

    The last picture is simply amazing. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Too bad we didn’t have much time to take more pictures, specially inside the mall. Let’s visit the place again soon 🙂

    Fabulous photos. I am amazed at the detailing involved in all these structures.

    Thank you. Love your post about photographers 🙂

  3. I love the color (glass is it?) ceiling on the inside of the mall. Such an interesting place!

    Yes, Louise, it is glass and it looks very pretty indeed 🙂

  4. Sujatha says:

    Thanks, Sujatha! I notice you also have that tall, pointed structure in Washington 🙂

  8. Trish says:

    tall, pointed structure looks like our Washington Memorial

    Yes indeed – I just saw it in one of the posts by a fellow blogger 🙂

  9. Denise says:

    Wow, that’s absolutely amazing. Great photos!

    Thanks, Denise!

  10. Haleem says:

    love the photos. just how many malls ARE there in Dubai? It seems every time I visit your blog they built a new one! 😛

    LOL – well honestly, I don’t know how many malls we have here in Dubai. But that’s the only place to go during the summer.

  11. Alicesg says:

    Ah, Raffles is from my country. 🙂 It looked so beautiful and classy.

    Ohhh, I love that escalator facing the main road that you’ve shown in your latest post! 🙂

  12. Arija says:

    In Dubai even the airport is worth seeing with the lovely mural of horses. I enjoy the way you present the city you obviously love. The Raffles looks like the zigurats of pre-pyramid times.
    I would love to explore the sukh in the shopping mall.

    I’m glad you liked the pictures, Arija. Thank you 🙂

  18. Umm Travis says:

    The tall pointed structure is called an Obelisk 🙂

    Ps. Too bad in the “real” Egypt there is nothing so glamorous as what is in your photos!

    Great shots sis!

    Oh yes, Obelisk 🙂 Thanks, Sis!

    PS: But Egypt has the real pyramids 🙂

  19. Indrani says:

    Such a lot of beauty there! Astounding!
    The previous comment made me smile. 🙂

    Hehe, Umm Travis is a good friend – always there, even at times when I’m at a loss for words (as in the case of the Obelisk) 🙂

  20. gudang says:

    And thank you for stopping by, Clara!

  22. lakshmi says:

    What a place..amazed I missed it during my visits to Dubai..maybe, next time 🙂

    When was the last time you visited Dubai? Lots of new malls have opened in the last 6 months 🙂

  23. Geogypsy says:

    Amazing architecture. Love the Egyptian theme. Nice captures.


  24. Wakas Mir says:

    Thanks for stopping by, Wakas.

  25. zeal4adventure says:

    Love the architecture. So much detail put into it. On our trip to Africa, we had a long lay-over at the airport. Next time, I should seriously consider staying a few days. Thanks for sharing.

    And thanks for visiting 🙂

  26. Ubaid says:

    nice photo’s =) !!

    Thanks, Ubaid. Although I must admit that the pictures didn’t do justice to the beauty of Wafi City.

  27. Hajar Alwi says:

    Brilliant photos. 🙂

    Thank you 🙂

  28. Asma Ahsan says:

    Wafi City – 😛

    I like that Mall a lot!

    Shopping! 😉

    But everything is so expensive 😦

  29. Asma Ahsan says:

    I have some great pics of kids in Wafi City as well. 🙂

  30. Asma Ahsan says:

    I know – I just go windw shopping in there – cant afford a thing in there either.

    I am happy window shopping as my huby tells me to control my self in malls. 😛

  31. Specs says:

    Dubai is so amazing! Its like a miniature of the world!

  32. safwan says:

    the wafi mall may seem to be just another harmless structure..but it is based on the theme of pharoah of egypt..who believed he was god..watch the arrivals on youtube and you will know more about the secret behind this structure. I am not an extremist if thats what you are thinking, but this is certainly not upholding the value of the Islam country
