Ibn Battuta Mall, Dubai

(4.3/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Ibn Battuta Mall at the forefront of your travel plans using our Dubai vacation planner.

  • This is a fantastic mall to really give you a flavour of the Asian continent. The majestic sculptures in the place are amazing and the decor simply stunning. You can shop for some very unique items that can be found in the far east, and the medieval ship is the the centre piece in this mall.
  • A fabulous mall and one of the best in Dubai! Fantastic style and layout, and has everything you could possibly want. Good for children as well adults. In addition to it all, teaches you about various cultures
  • a beautiful theme mall with various sections and hell lot of options to shop, eat and play. I would say since its little on the outskirts maybe its an underrated mall otherwise I loved it as much as Mall of Emirates just for the sheer variety and the beautiful and colorful interiors. Shall post some pics pretty soon
  • One of the best mall in Dubai. It looks more like travel journal of IBN Batuta. The whole mall looks like various countries that he visited over course of time. Some places we have display of various images and models that were part of his journal. Don't miss visiting this mall if you are in dubai.
  • One of my favorite places in Dubai. It has got good options for shopping, dining, cinema (multiplex), kids activities, clinics, pharmacy, fitness centre, bowling centre and banks/money exchange/ATMs. The best part of this mall is the parking. You can park from any side (i.e. East, West, North, South of the Mall). All the courts are easily accessible and parking in most cases are easy to get. Other advantages are next to metro station, petrol station, and Hotels.
