You can head to Ibn Battuta Mall and enjoy free AR walking tours with a real-life avatar of Ibn Battuta who will interact with the children and tell stories from the past, as they visit six different country-themed courts to learn more about the Moroccan traveller’s journeys throughout his lifetime.

Additionally, the mall introduced a Pharaoh make-up face filter and a traditional Indian make-up face filter for families and friends to play with as they shop and dine.
