Last week, while Dane was working late I went to Ibn Battuta Mall to take some pictures. It’s a nice mall only 10 minutes away from the apartment in a taxi so I’ve been there a few times. It’s the largest themed mall in the world (of course it is!) and its design is based on the travels of the Arabic explorer Ibn Battuta. The themes of the mall are celebrated on the inside and on the outside of the building. The different themes are: China, India, Persia, Egypt, Tunisia and Andalusia. Unfortunately the section dedicated to Andalusia is small and I missed it. When you stop and look up the design is very impressive. My favourite section is definitely Egypt but that may be biased because it’s the only one of the 6 I’ve been to. Today I’m going for afternoon tea with my Mam and Maria in the Burj Al Arab. I looked forward to sharing my experience here soon. xoxo
