Wafi City, with its ancient Egyptian-influenced architecture, is a massive, elegant and luxurious shopping, leisure and entertainment complex, flanked by giant sphinxes and home to arguably the best variety of upmarket shops in town.
At Wafi City, you’ll find everything from the tastiest of foodstuffs in the legendary Wafi Gourmet, to dramatic home furnishings in Petals, to accessories and gifts galore. Wafi City is also home to big name designer outlets, including Betty Barclay, Caresse, Chanel, Giordano, Escada, Roccobarroco, Versace and more.
Adding to Wafi City’s allure is the new subterranean and architecturally magnificent souk, Khan Murjan, specialising in traditional arts and crafts from the Arab world. And if you’re in need of an energy boost, across the way in Pyramids you’ll find Cleopatra’s spa and a cluster of good eateries. One, the Rooftop Gardens, even features special themed movie and music nights.
