Explore the world’s largest themed shopping centre at Ibn Battuta Mall, inspired by the famous explorer of the same name.
Shop your way through 275 retailers across six courts, each reflecting the different regions through which Ibn Battuta travelled – Andalusia, Tunisia, Egypt, Persia, India and China.
Don’t just visit for the shopping though – the decor is a sight to behold itself.
Persia Court features a magnificent hand painted dome; there are pyramids in the Egypt Court; and a striking lion fountain takes centre stage in Andalusia Court. Tunisia Court offers up ancient stucco facades; China Court reflects the perils of Ibn Battuta’s visit with pirates and sunken ships, while the top of every hour in India Court is celebrated with dragons, phoenixes and wooden figures.
