Create an itinerary including Ibn Battuta Mall
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. PutIbn Battuta Mall into our Dubai trip builder app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Super friendly to kids and families. You have everything you need around the corner and so many hotels and food court around. Just love it and recommend it wide car parking also. Mall is a Great shopping mall in Dubai city. Lots of great shops. I love this mall! It has everything.
  • I didn't know that it's The world’s largest themed shopping mall, designed around the travel experiences of renowned Arabian explorer, Ibn Battuta. At Ibn Battuta Mall, shopping, dining and entertainment come together with history, culture, and the story of a remarkable adventure. The mall features six mesmerizing individual courts –India Court, Persia Court, Egypt Court, Tunisia Court, Andalusia Court and at the centre of it all is one of the most seaworthy vessels of its time – a Chinese Junk situated in China Court. It’s homage to the great traveller and his remarkable adventure.
  • Great place but once you step out of your car the harassment begins , they stay close to the car to ask for a wash my wife never comes alone then inside the battle begins ..excuse me sir ! Try this ,look at this ,puff a jet of perfume in the eye, maybe I'm not used to open marketing stile but I know many of expats feel the same . Hope one day the customer can come and do the shopping in peace. All the best God bless !
  • Ibn Battuta Mall is a very big mall which takes one day to cover the whole shops inside it. There are many restaurants, costume shops, big branded shops, etc will be under affordable range. There will be big sale/offers almost all the days for branded items. The malls interior and exterior design is amazing and you will have many places for photography too. Enough car parking facility too. A good place for families to spent for shopping.
  • Its the world’s largest themed shopping mall designed around the travel experiences of the renowned Arabian explorer, Ibn Battuta. Very nice place to explore. Easy access to metro and bus facilities available. Beautiful architecture all around... hallways, arches, statues and monuments. It’s a mall plus a mini museum. Definitely worth a visit.
