It’s the year of the Water Dragon!

And because of this, we visited DRAGON MART!

Dragon Mart is a huge shopping complex located in Dubai. The 150000 square meter dragon-shaped structure has 3950 shops engaged in the wholesale and retail trade of a variety of Chinese products.

At 1.2km long, Dragon Mart is the largest Chinese trading hub outside of China. Built like an enormous pink dragon, it includes showrooms, shopping areas, restaurants and warehouses that house no fewer than 4,000 enterprises dealing in Chinese products. Although it’s divided up into various sections such as clothing, hardware and furniture, often these are quite mixed up and you never know when you may stumble across a ridiculously cheap pair of comfy shoes, a slinky silk embroidered gown or an authentic-looking set of pearls.

The Dragon fountain by the entrance

 …some more water dragons!

Some red Chinese lanterns will welcome you when you enter the building. Notice the huge UAE and China flags.

We came here for cheap toy cars. But we also found these… vintage toy cars!

… Dad said they are NOT for playing! They are intended for display only. I don’t like them then :)

Checking out CCTVs. Hey, is that us? :)
