I have been wanting to read Ibn Battutah ever since I lived in Morocco as a teenager, an experience that consolidated in me the same overmastering impulse and desire long cherished to travel that he says first made him set off from his Moroccan home Of course, he saw this through rather thoroughly than I did I spent two months InterRailing with a girlfriend, whereas he set off from Tangier in the summer of 1325 and didn t come back again for another twenty four years.His full name was Shams al [...]
Ibn Battutah, a Moroccan Arab traveller of the fourteenth century, made Marco Polo look like a stay at home he not only visited China and East Asia as Marco did but also took in India, the Maldives, Indonesia, the Sahara, Mali and Niger, and Arab occupied Spain Unlike Marco, he tended to travel first class often than not as an honoured guest and counsellor to the various rulers, mostly Muslim, he met along the way.Ibn Battutah had this advantage over Polo the world he travelled was a largely Mu [...]
Ibn Battutah travelled from Morocco throughout the Muslim world and beyond as an itinerant jurist in the fourteenth century His was an absolutely stupendous feat, with his travels ranging from Mali to the Ukraine and Ceylon to China, and all points in between.His work as a jobbing scholar afforded him access to religious leaders and courts throughout the lands he visited.I liked the insight to medieval Islam, and the sense that it s adherents regarded themselves as one community, for all that th [...]
In contrast to the numerous modern travel books which seem to focus on the personality of the writer or trivial observations, this is an epic in every sense of the word The scale of the journey is immense in distance and time, IB stayed to work as a Qadi judge in several places along the way, this means that you really get a deep sense of the politics and the people in each destination This depth is unlike some of the superficial accounts of present books which rely on novelty and humour Althou [...]
Lovely little gem of a book I tend not like travel books but this one referred to cities I have been to in places and gives you a historic background to them which is so so interesting The book is about Ibn Battuta a resident of Tangiers morocco , which I never knew, who travels across the middle east and all the way across India all the way to China and back He wrote this based on his travels from 1325 till 1354 In one instant he talks of the sea divers he meets off the coast of Persia and desc [...]

Fascinating read about one of the world s first great explorers tourists, who saw of the world than even most modern jetsetters He hits all the places I would love to see China, Persia, the Maldives, the Silk Road, southern Spain, and back again to Morocco A great perspective of the fourteenth century world, this account shows first hand the sweeping changes in society as this remarkable individual travels behind the devestation of the Mongol invasion and the Black Death in Europe, Middle East, [...]
done, finally I went through it very quickly to define the perception of Ibn Battita toward himself as traveller and his perception to others Also, is his language of describing places was driven by his ego biased and his spiritual and cultural background
I m afraid this review is going to be on picture I got of Ibn Battuta than of his book The reason is, he has written mostly of how he felt about the places he visited and how his personal life was at those places To me, his descriptions are very narrow minded and self centered, therefore very little information on the places he travelled and how it was during that period Of cause I don t blame him We have at least this information because he did write something.The main thing he tells about the [...]

WORLD TRAVEL CLASSICS THE TRAVELS OF IBN BATTUTA AND THE TRAVELS OF MARCO POLO FROM THE WORLD LITERATURE FORUM RECOMMENDED CLASSICS AND MASTERPIECES SERIES VIA ROBERT SHEPPARD, EDITOR IN CHIEFFor most of us coming from a Western background when we think of the great travelers and travel accounts of world history the name that first comes to mind is of course that of Marco Polo, the 13th Century Venetian whose Odyssey took him to the China court of the Mongol Emperor of Yuan Dynasty Kublai Kahn i [...]
This book is a farce Battuta may have journeyed during his lifetime, but this record made after he returned from the twenty nine year excursion contains so many errors that it raises than skepticism The translator, an English clergyman in the 1820s was obviously enad of this traveler and proud of his own knowledge of Arabic He continuously makes excuses for Battuta when places he visited cannot be found in any other historical geographical record Battuta records Islamic histories replete with f [...]
The Travels by Ibn Battutah I can describe it like reading a page writin 700 years ago it s a glimpse in a world that no longer exists ibn Battutahs account covered everything from the bazaars and people of the many cities and lands he visited to the hardships he faced on the road from Morroco to China and back its also worth mentioning that there is a bit of a culture shock related to this read this is for example written in a time when slavery was basically the norm and you will be reading dis [...]

Very interesting book Loved every page of it After reading the book I have the feeling that people in former times were far tolerant than today According to this book they atleast accepted that other people might have other believes Not that I wanted to live in those times because they had some really rough methods to punish people I especially loved the description of various cities in India and China.
A very approachable introduction to one of the world s greatest travellers I found Battuta s viewpoints on the travels most interesting Marrying, divorcing, parenting as he travelled all were entirely acceptable brandishing errant slaves also seemed within reason, but visiting a court and not being given money or presents to keep him during his stay was totally wrong A must read for any traveller.
A must read for those who do not know of Ibn Battuta Well written and documented, it carries you through the journeys and offers a different view than the contemporary, and better known but perhaps less travelled, Marco Polo.
it s amazing
Rihlah Ibnu Battuta oleh Dr Muhammad Hanafis, Penerbitan Seribu Dinar Siapa penulis budiman ini Kalau ia diterjemahkan ke bahasa Melayu oleh orang lain, ternyata gagal.Saya mula baca sebelum Subuh tadi bermula Bab 1 Perjalanan Ke Tangier, kemudian melompat ke Bab 7 Perjalanan Ke Anatolia Bab pertama sudah pening kepala dengan susunan ayat yang gagal menterjemahkan keindahan perjalanan Ibnu Battuta Bab 7 agak okey justeru saya mengetahui kebanyakan nama nama lokasi di Anatolia daripada penulisan [...]
Meine Erwartungen an diesem Buch waren hoch, und ich wurde nicht entt uscht Eigentlich habe ich dieses Buch von Ibn Batutta vor Jahren gelesen, also werde ich nicht so ins Detail eingehen k nnen, da ich das meiste mitlerweile vergessen habe Aber an einige Geschichten, welche er auf seiner Reise erlebt hatte, kann ich mich grob errinnen Hier ein grober Berblick Ein junger Kaufmann, Ibn Batutta, macht sich vom Maghreb auf den Weg um die Pflicht eines jeden gl ubigen Muslims nachzugehen Die Pilgerf [...]
