Just about anything you will need can be found here. Plenty of parking and even on busy days you don't feel cramped in this huge complex.

The shopping experience is excellent, the food outlets cover a wide range of foods and the Stay Inn is a great place to rest your head

Even the most discerning traveller's will find something to spend their money on at this centre! Fortunately there are some good coffee shops and eateries to revive you .. Shop until you drop stuff..

All the major stores and some are housed in this one place. And plenty of food choices. Lots of people too so be warned. Dress comfy for walking!

If shopping is your thing, this is the place for you. Just make sure you do not get lost when you go the first time. Very convenient, also with the large outside lifestyle stores.

It's funny I ha seen this mall grow from when it first opened to barely half of it full to now with a large array of stores which will certainly make sure you find what your looking for. My best advise is have some real comfortable shoes and a healthy budget lol.
