Enjoyed the place there. Huge mall that you get lost without a proper mall map. It has almost all the popular shops and foot outlets. There is also a prayer room for muslims on the exterior part of the mall, near the lake.

This shopping mall is big and awesome, there are numerous bargains with some shops having very competitive prices, the food court has most of the first foods so every one is well taken care off. It was a good experience walking for over 5 hours.
