Ibn Battuta Mall, Dubai

4.3
#4 of 97 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. Put Ibn Battuta Mall into our Dubai trip builder app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • What decoration for a mall! It's just wonderful to pass from one culture to another (Tunisian, Egyptian, Asian, etc...). Many shops, but not too crowded, it's nice. Do just for decoration, and also a bit of shopping.

  • One of beautiful and quiet shopping malls in Dubai. It is characterized by its unique design as it is divided into sections of each of these sections representing a civilization of ancient civilizations. Chinese civilization. Persian civilization. Indian civilization. Islamic civilization. There are examples of the inventions of Muslim scholars in the ancient Islamic civilization. The center also has a role for cinema. Its location is a little far away but it is close to various public transport such as taxi cars, public buses and the Dubai Metro line. مركز من مراكز التسوق الجميلة والهادئة في دبي . يمتاز بتصميمه الفريد حيث انه مقسم الى اقسام كل قسم من هذه الاقسام يمثل حضارة من الحضارات القديمة . الحضارة الصينية . الحضارة الفارسية. الحضارة الهندية . الحضارة الاسلامية. وهناك نماذج من اختراعات علماء المسلمين في الحضارة الاسلامية القديمة . يحتوي المركز على دور للسينما ايضا . موقعه بعيد قليلا لكنه على مقربة من مختلف وسائل النقل العام مثل سيارات التكسي و الباصات العامة وخط مترو دبي.

  • INSPIRED BY A LEGEND In June 1335, a young man of just 21 years set out to explore the world. His journey spanned 24 years and six different lands - Tunisia, Egypt, Persia, India, China and Andalusia. Along the way, he survived storms and pirates, served as a judge and scholar, dined with nobles and commoners. This extraordinary adventurer was Ibn Battuta. His life and travels are an inspiration to us. It has influenced our mall in design and spirit. You’ll see it in the interior themes and names of our courts.It has influenced our mall in design and spirit.
