Shopping Mall · Hidden Gem · Shopping
Enjoy a memorable shopping trip at Ibn Battuta Mall, an enormous and interestingly themed retail center. Opened in 2005, the complex includes six separate areas, each designed in the style of a land visited by Ibn Battuta, the famous Moroccan Berber explorer. The architecture, color schemes, and styles of Andalusia, Tunisia, Egypt, Persia, India, and China are sensitively referenced across the expansive mall, creating distinct atmospheres. The tastefully decorated space offers more than 270 shops, 50 restaurants, and a multiplex cinema, but even if nothing takes your fancy, you'll enjoy seeing the impressively conceived interior design and the commitment to the cultural styles it seeks to imitate.

  • One of my favourite malls in Dubai. It's all one level so you can actually take long strolls here through the themed courts and corridors. It's one of the best places to take a walk in during the summer months. Of course you may end up having to walk a lot due to the availability of parking :)
  • Huge and beautiful mall. The architecture is stunning. Extremely nice combination of modern and classic looks. Plenty of brands both luxury and economical. Easily available free parking. Food courts with great selection of food options.
