When most people are asked to name an epic traveller from history, they usually come up with names like Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Magellan, or any number of other well-known European explorers and adventurers that come to mind. Very few could name an explorer or traveller outside the realm of medieval and renaissance Europe, despite the obvious reality that there was at the same time, an enormous, incredibly diverse and highly interconnected parallel world outside their own relatively isolated domain, in which the Islamic faith had established networks of sultanates and empires extending from the Westernmost edge of Africa, all the way to China. This was a world in which newly conquered peoples were only just starting to assimilate the Arab Islamic culture, adopting - and adapting - this new faith to their own tastes and styles in an organic process of fusion that few Westerners ever credit other cultures as being capable of. What if I told you that around the same time of the celebrated Marco Polo, there was a young Muslim adventurer, who travelled 5 times as far. From his homeland in Morocco, through the middle East, doing numerous side-trips- north into Russia, with Mongol khans of the Golden Horde and Ilkhanate and Genoese traders, and then south again to India's Tughlaq Sultanate and South East Asia, dwelling in the court of mighty Sultans as well as hermits in lonely caves. He would go on to loop the middle East and Mediterranean and then sail down the mysterious East coast of Africa only to weave his way back north and on to modern Indonesia, Malaya and on to Yuan Dynasty China. Regularly stopping for months at a time to study and work under the greatest teachers of the day, on his journey, he would meet mystics and maniacs, firewalkers and killer elephants; princes and pirates. He would marry and divorce ten times; win and lose several fortunes; undertake the sacred Hajj 5 times; outrun the bubonic plague; and after a quarter of a century eventually make his way home, only to travel across the Sahara into deepest Africa. He would go on to recount his journey, the people he met and the cultures he encountered in rich and vivid detail, in a precious book that would eventually make him a hero throughout the entire Islamic world, and a household name, much as Marco Polo is to us. If this sounds like a rollicking adventure worth exploring, then join us, as we dive into the life and times of Ibn Battuta (بْنُ بَطُّوطَةُ) - pilgrim, intellectual and adventurer.

The reader shows amazement about the hospitality Batuta finds on his travels. Well i traveled through Vietnam for three months, and stayed at peoples houses many times. They prepared their best foods, and gifted me custom made clothes! A dress, traditional costume and coat! In one village i had to eat and sleep in a different house every day! Also in other countries i have met heartwarming hospitality, and whenever i can i try to be as wellcoming as possible!

This is very admirable! In what way did you travel in order to meet so many people? Do you speak the language? I'm planning on traveling through 52 countries on my list and wish I could have a similar experience, an experience close to the people, however I'm going by bicycle and camping which on my low budget is the way I must go and thinking I will be too distant from the people traveling that way. I also have a special diet I want to maintain and I know a big way people of other cultures relate is by feeding their guests. If I say I'm on a special diet they are not going to understand and could hurt their sense of dignity.

I agree. I've a similar experience when reading such travelogues. It seems that in my mind, time passes differently in different cultures. Like when Battuta visits the Yuan Dynasty, I get the impression that it wasn't so long ago, since in Chinese history, the Yuan was the last but two dynasty. But then Battuta goes to visit the Mali Empire and all of a sudden I realize how long ago all this was since Mali is among the earliest documented states in sub-Saharan Africa, 700 years ago!!

O he is famous all right, in Asia and Africa, just not in Europe. Europeans are mostly known as close minded by Scholars in non European World as they are just too ingrained into their own things rather than seeing and studying the whole World for what it is. Europe is just a small little corner of the whole Asia-Europe/Eurasia continental plate.

Ibn Battuta visited Granada in 1350. I can't imagine how beautiful the Alhambra was back then. I was breathless at the sight of it in 1992, the 500th anniversary of all non-Christians being forced to leave. Walking away from such a wonderful place, after calling it home for centuries, must have been heartbreaking.

What I found most astonishing was the hospitality he received almost everywhere he went, and over such a protracted period of time. It seems like this journey would only have been possible given Islamic traditions, as well as other non-western traditions. I've done a lot of traveling, but there's no way I can possibly imagine the life he led and the adventures described in this most excellent documentary. The fact that he ran into so many dangers of all types, and survived, is simply amazing. He even escaped the plague!

Maybe in the 20th century, most Europeans didn't know about Ibn Battuta, but now he is very well known. In Dubai, the largest shopping mall is named after him. They named a crater on the Moon after him. So he pops up in the press and all sorts of places in modern Western culture. I tried to develop a documentary about him years ago. I wanted it to be a little like the Michael Palin documentaries where a modern Muslim comic travelled in his footsteps and you learned about what the world was like at the time and saw the same places today. I thought it was a great idea and they eventually did something like it but not with me involved.

What an excellent video! Even if the redone one is slightly less pleasing than the original was, visually. That's not his fault at all. This one of the VERY best videos on all of KZbin! And I saw not one sigle add, except 1 at the start. BRAVO! And thanks so much for giving this to us. I know it took countless hours to make, and I LOVE your sense of humor! ❤

You have a delightful narrative style yourself, and I can easily picture you on similar journeys, enthralling your generous hosts with great knowledge and travel tales! This was a lovely find and I enjoyed it thoroughly (as I was busily scrapping paint off an old folding stool this evening). Thanks for keeping me engaging company and expanding my horizons!

Isn't this the guy Micheal Crichton wrote about? The waters of the dead? Great story that Creighton did his own research on including this guy's later writings.
@reteguy7338

Micheal Crichton wrote eaters of the dead based on a guy named Ahmad ibn Fadlan, who wrote his encounter with this strange Rus Vikings near the river in the asian steppe around 900's. Meanwhile this ibn Battuta doing his dilly dally and misadventures throught maritime silkroad at around the year 1300's. Completely two different dudes at the two different times.

Wether you believe the stories of this travel or not it’s still historical and was a journey took during a time when travel was quite rare. Any records of these events are fascinating and a brilliantly documented past time

These journeys taken on by this intrepid traveller would have been life threatening and enthralling at the same time..experiencing cultural differences that would have been very difficult for most to even contemplate..The Lonely Planet Guide would certainly have been seeking his advice if his timeline aligned with ours..what a fulfilling live..never boring but super enthralling..thankyou for sharing..😊
