Its just 45 minutes from Kranji and the shopping is really cheap at half the price you would pay at Singapore. Mall is very big- bigger than the one at Dhobi gaut station. Reminds me of Times square Mall at KL. Loads of goodies and tons of food can be a fun and time pass evening out there.

Went there once in the evening, starting from ground level and up. Its a good place, not too crowd and they have discounts stuffs on the atrium, right on the centre on ground floor. If you looking for authentic malaysian snacks go to kapitan snack shop. All new and cheap.taking taxi also easy from lobby. Have fun shopping

It certainly has changed from 2 years ago. It looks much cleaner and newer and didn't feel like it was an old mall. A permanent stage is at the atrium and the information counter is situated in a prominent area on the ground floor. A lot of new brands have entered and includes renowned brands such as Braun Buffel, Bonia... More

No large supermarket or departmental store here but the Cathay cineplex is good and the various tenants sell a very wide variety - CBTL next to Starbucks, Uniqlo of Japan, T-bowl Restaurant from Taiwan, MPH & Popular for books, a Samsung lifestyle store, Machines for Apple products, a reasonably good movie poster, collectible & souvenir shop, etc.

I have no clues what is all fuss about it! The price is not that cheap and not that expensive either, it was just regular type of stuff they sold at the shopping centre from first class country to what so called backward country. The food is not representing the country so well, over cooked and services quite lousy and... More

Free wifi in some shops like McD and Seasons. There are pedestrian bridges connecting CS with CIQ and Merlin Tower. The mall is located in front of train station and CIQ.
