Dubai’s Dragon Mart, the largest trading hub for products from China outside the Chinese main land has already attracted huge numbers of visitors since opening its doors on December 7th 2004.
Developed by Nakheel at its International City in the Al Warsan area of Dubai, the 1.2 km long Dragon-shaped structure has attracted residents from Dubai and neighboring Emirates who come to enjoy a unique shopping experience while browsing a vast and varied selection of Chinese products.
Dragon Mart includes showrooms, shopping areas, restaurants and warehouses that house 4000 enterprises dealing in Chinese products. The Mart is divided into several commercial and service areas, an office area and a business centre. It also has negotiation rooms and three conference rooms within the commercial areas.
Another major factor draw-card, and one that fascinates public, is the Mart’s distinctive architecture, which is very rare in this part of the world. Spread across 150,000 square meters the Dragon Mart is the first component of Nakheel’s International City project.
