Time Out Says

For a global experience tucked away in one building, Dubai's Ibn Battuta Mall is the traveller’s destination. The mall gets its name from the famed explorer who travelled the world centuries ago, and you may well need a map getting around here. During his travels, he went to Andalusia, Tunisia, Egypt, Persia, India and China, which just so happen to be the six different districts the shopping mall is influenced by.

The décor in this Dubai mall is something to ogle at – with elaborate tiling, a gigantic golden elephant, a sizeable Chinese ship, a high ceiling painted to look like blue skies, and lush outdoor tea gardens.

Lush interior design aside, Ibn Battuta Mall features a wealth of different shops, including loads of fashion and lifestyle shops, electronics stores, a Novo Cinema with one of the most luxurious screen rooms, and sporting shops with regular in-store promotions and celebrations.
