Ibn Battuta Mall, the world’s largest themed shopping mall, is designed around the travels of renowned 14th century Arabian explorer, Ibn Battuta. The mall’s 270 shops, 50 restaurants and a 21-screen cinema are spread over six individually-designed zones reflecting the most influential places that Ibn Battuta visited: China, India, Persia, Egypt, Tunisia and Andalusia.
Nakheel is currently expanding Ibn Battuta – adding 150 shops to the existing complex – as part of its retail growth strategy. The developer is also extending Dragon Mart Mall, and building new malls at Palm Jumeirah and Deira Islands.
