Ibn Battuta was a great explorer. How that relates to shopping is unclear, but this mall is themed around him, with the six main sections of mall named for the countries he travelled in and the decorations include a faux elephant with a water clock inside him, an Egyptian temple and a fountain that would be much more at home in a Spanish square.

This mall has Dubai's first IMAX, as well as 21 regular cinema screens.
