Huge complex with all sorts of shops. The light show around the artificial pond was nice. But the complex itself and the shops are not organised well. Just a plain shopping arcade, and nothing that stands out. Much better places around to spend your time.

While I didn’t partake in the food, the aroma was amazing and the atmosphere was vibrant. There was a show going on and while I didn’t understand the words, The acting was brilliant enough to understand the plot.

This was great mall right off the canal super clean. Kinda a goofy lay out but once you figure it out it’s okay. Easy to get to by transit lots of store and restaurant options.
