" My favorite mall in Dubai so far. First of all it's not that big, but with enough shops and brands for a great shopping experience. What makes this mall my favorite is the nice and cozy ambience. I usually miss the feeling just walking down the street, seeing some beautiful stuff in some shop, then go and buy it. This feeling i have here with the difference that in one moment i'm in Iran, in the next in China and so on. The different courts designed like different countries make all this possible."
" Don't expect fancy brands, but everything else is there, from reasonably priced furniture to a supermarket. Great sports clothing options, as well as kids stores. It's a themed mall, so even if you are not visiting for shopping, check it out for the architecture inspired by the travels of Ibn Battuta, the explorer. It's all one level so walking from one end to the other can take time but there's a shuttle inside the mall"
" Excellent mall with historical views and themes of ancient history of Ibn-e-Batoota. His inventions and theories. Mall have different country named sections. Children must go there to learn about history."
" Good place for shopping. And a must visit place at Dubai. Easy to access as it has very good connectivity via Metro, Bus & Taxi. This mall gives you a wonderful experience for its built style. It has various sections to commemorate the countries traveled by Ibn Batuta. And all section has various sculptures & information displayed. More than shopping this would also give you an wonderful learning experience."
" Visit Ibn Batutta Mall for it's uniqueness of diversity. A concept Mall with ambience of different countries and cultures, which has brand placements in the sync of the concept. Caters most of the value and high Street brands. Much of the luxury and designer brands missing. Food court area is great and happening. Best hang out place for Discovery Garden folks."
