These include India, China, Egypt & other parts of the middle east. There is... More

An architecture which shows an excellent workmanship. 6 different country themes have been picked and placed under a single roof. It highlights Andalusia, Tunisia, Egypt, Persia, India & China themes. This is most beautiful mall in Dubai. The mall is huge and you would love walking which will take you to a round journey of countries which Ibn Batuta visited.... More

The glitzy Dubai Mall under the shadow of the Burj Khalifa gets all the attention, but a bit further out of the centre on the road to Abu Dhabi and easily accessible by Metro is the beautiful Ibn Battuta Mall. Named after a 13th Century traveller, the malls different sections are fashioned after the regions of the Islamic world at... More

We went here as it was close to our hotel, then visited other Mall's but this was by far the best for pictures. The Mall is made up of 'countries' inside, and the ceilings and walls are brilliantly! It's small compared to the other Mall's but one you can walk in a few hours. Well worth a visit for goods... More

The interior of the mall is different from other malls.The concept was beautifully crafted and the design and architecture is of several significant countries and their culture.Totally amazing and the experience was totally wonderful. You can't help but take pictures in each country concept or part, not a waste of time.I recommend tourists should check it out.

The mall is made up of multiple "courts" styled according to countries that the traveller Ibn Battuta visited. It is all beautifully executed and each of the courts has a big monument that one could take pictures with. Good layout of stores and decent food court too.

I love Ibn Battuta! The interior is kitschy but well-executed and makes for good photo opps. It's also a great place to bring the kids.

Spent a happy Friday morning wandering end the mall. The design is interesting. The shops are not too up market - mostly reasonable prices. Nice coffee shop in the middle under a beautiful Persian dome. Plenty of places to eat.
