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.

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.
