There are many stores along this stretch, selling clothings, mobile phone accessories, bread, etc. It provides a link between the subway and nearby places of interests. While there are people walking in this underground mall, not many are buying anything.

This is a somewhat strange place. There is some sort of sadness in the air. Most of the shops and sellers are old and look a bit unwelcoming and thus creates somewhat sad atmosphere in here.
