We came here to buy some groceries thinking that there would be more western choices, there are more than the normal Mart but still very little and super expensive. Staff doesn't speak any English.

You should visit floors 11-13 to have a great view over Busan, there's a nice green area as well. Some quite good deals in Event halls especially in B1F Floor. TGIF-restaurant has excellent steaks!

This mall was attached to the hotel we stayed in. Any high-end store you can think of is located in this mall. Tiffany's, Gucci, LV, Rolex etc. There are also other shops within the facility. There's a pharmacy on B1 of the mall in case you need something. If you're from the United States, this pharmacy is a little different... More

Apart from the shopping and restaurant options, this mall is a good option for kids. We watched the fountain show twice because my kids liked it so much, and the mini 'zoo' on the 13th floor was a welcome break from shopping for us all. It was good to step out of the mall interior, walk around on the top... More

Easy to get to from the subway. Rooftop observatory on Level 13 is awesome. Sweeping views of Busan port, bridges, Busan city and on the other side Yongdusan Park and the mountains. The food court on the lower level has bargains before closing for bread and pastries, kimbabs and other prepared delicacies. Shopping haven with so many stores. Definitely a... More

Yes, I visited this store quite often, and always found new surprises each time. Hmm, one of my favourite stops was to have lunch on the 9th floor. I usually went to the Vietnamese restaurant. yum yum. There's a phenomenal lookout area outside the top floor. You'll see a fantastic view of the surrounding area. Now, another fun and favourite...

The view from the roof over Busan at night was terrific. You can see the Lotte Tower in teh park with a model of it in veiw at the same time. The store is huge, but the hotel they are building next door is going to be much biger (45 floors, I think). A meal at the Kyushu restaurant was... More

We went here only for the rooftop observatory and the fountain show. We were disappointed with the fountain show, had been expecting more from reading reviews. The colours were rather pale and at times difficult to see and the water jets not that dramatic. We thought the changing colours on the static backdrop before and after the show were actually...

If you want to have options of eat different foods, see new clothes or other items such shoes, books, etc, this is a good place to good. But is it bad if you are looking for electronics. Only one Apple Store...
