The shopping here is only so-so, but this mall is still well worth a visit for its stunning architecture which follows the journeys of 14th-century Arab explorer Ibn Battuta. It's built around six country-themed courts, the most stunning of which is the Persian Court, crowned by a beautiful handpainted dome.

China Court centres on a full-size Chinese junk, while in the India Court you can pose with an 8m-high elephant. Surprisingly, there’s nothing kitsch or ‘Disney’ about this place as the craftsmanship and attention to detail are truly impressive.
