Fodor's Expert Review Ibn Battuta Mall

Dubai Marina Shopping Centers/Malls

This visually unique shopping structure has six different courts, each designed in the style of the countries or regions visited by the 14th-century Islamic traveler and diarist, Ibn Battuta. From the azure tiles and fountains at Andalusia Court, you'll wander through Tunisia, Egypt, Persia, India, and finally to the life-size junk boat on display at the China court. Artisans were brought from across the globe to design the mall's decorative elements, including the ornate blue and gold enameling in the dome of the Persian court and the detailed wooden fretwork of the Egyptian souk. There are more than 200 stores here, including a large Géant hypermarket. The sprawling mall is all on one level, so the management provides golf cart transportation (there are several stops with frequent, regularly scheduled service) to give your tired feet a rest.
