We were expecting the Underground City to be a big place with a bunch of activities. From what we can put together it IS huge, but it's mostly there to connect office buildings, subway stations, malls, apartment buildings to that residents don't have to go...More

An adaquet thing to do if it’s raining. A lot of places to eat and some shops, but the underground is very confusing if you’re not sure we’re your going, and the guide maps are no help.

We visited underground city during the rain. It was impressive with plenty of stores and a food court area. There are some areas where it was difficult to get around with a stroller.

There are things to see here but it’s mostly shopping and tunnels in between. I looked for a good tour but couldn’t find one. However you will be thankful if it rains or snows.
