Ross E.Dunn, Amir Sutaarga (Translator), Taufik Abdullah (Foreword). 1986. Pertualangan Ibnu Battuta - seorang musafir muslim abad-14
Hello readers, I get this book from a pre-loved seller named Nur Anis Zuliana from Facebook group. She sold it to me for RM30 and RM8 for postage. I paid on 26 Dec 2019, received my book on 5 Jan 2020 and finished read the book on Oct 2021.
LoL.. it take me a while to finish this book. The reason is my reading mood are unstable, plus the book use a lot of Indonesian slang and expectedly it’s not nearly as exciting.
Ibn Battuta was an amazing man, he set off from Tangier in 1325, visiting Egypt, Mecca, Syria, Iraq, Anatolia, the Central Asian, India, the Maldives and possibly China before returning home nearly twenty five years later. It offers extensive background information and is an approachable introduction to the world of classical Islam as well as a lively and entertaining travel narrative.
