    Good interiors and eye catching details
    Good place to spend/past you time, big but not big as Dubai mall. It has the amazing interiors and the details are wow. There are some brands available here too but not as specific as Dubai mall. It’s located a bit far from the Dubai mall, always better to take a metro

    Amazing Architecture and Mall Design
    The mall boasts its architectural design based on the adventures of Ibn Battuta. It has several courts representing each country he has explored. You can enjoy shopping around the mall while learning about his journey. If you are visiting Dubai, I highly recommend to pass by this mall. It is located south of Dubai near other touristic locations like Marina and JBR. Mall is accessible thru red metro link if you’re thinking of public transportation.

    Everything you need and more
    Very large mall with pretty much everything you'd need. Not as many high end fashion stores as Dubai mall but good for food hall and general provisions. Takes a long time to get around so good for an evening retail therapy. Very safe environment and spotlessly clean

    Amazing Mall
    This is an amazing mall in Dubai in the honor of Ibn Battuta, a great Arabic voyager from the 12th century. It’s has six amazing courts: Andalusia Court, China Court, Egypt Court, India Court, Persia Court, and Tunisia Court. There are many shops and food courts. It is worth visiting.

    Loved this Themed Mall
    Amazing mall. It's huge, loved the different themed sections. Great food options along with great shopping. We were staying next door in the Avani hotel so visiting the mall was so convenient. Spent 2 days trying to see it all & visit as many shops that were pertinent to us. Bought men's & women's clothes (great to find big sizes) jewellery along with supplies from the Carrefours supermarket. Lovely cafes n 2 big food halls. There is a train station adjacent. Have previously been to The Dubai Mall & the Mall of the Emirates & while perhaps not as big it was still a great mall

A big, beautiful mall. However, it is located in an area a bit far from most important tourist attractions. There are dozens, hundreds of shops of all kinds, a lot of restaurants, cinema, bowling and other entertainment, food court area with interesting offers.

So huge, it's like a city, and it takes days to explore the entire mall. If you like shopping in a quiet place where there is no crowding, this is the place for you.

Very spacious mall , good for long stretches of walk . Several restaurants along the way but I guess the best option would be the expansive food court. Many stores on offer but don’t expect the luxury brands to be on detail. Themed sections make you feel being on different continents. Location is a little far out from the city center but caters to a nearby hotel and exclusive condominiums .
