Ibn Battuta Mall, Dubai

4.3
#4 of 94 in Shopping in Dubai
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.

  • This mall is just across our hotel . We stayed at Movenpick. A very big mall and shopping paradise. A very big Carrefour supermarket and many many shops. They also have awesome foodcourts.  more »
  • Even if you hate shopping, this brilliant mall is worth a visit, because of it splendid design andf architecture. We liked it much better than the almost decadent Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Mall.  more »

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
