Malls on the Blue Line

Malls in the city are listed by metro line and organized in terms of proximity to the city center. The selection of malls is based on supermarkets, number of stores as well as stores expats would look for or need. Entertainment options were also taken into consideration.

The city is big, so it’s no surprise that there is an exhaustive number of malls. Those that have few stores and are too far outside of the center aren’t listed. That being said, most of the big malls worth your time are listed here regardless of distance.
