Huge shopping mall ~ Too big to have a look around. It’ll probably take more than a day to look around every shops. I love to look at this beauty of architectural structure. And there is a fantastic performance of music fountain in the evening. It is worth watching. Don’t miss it~
A big shopping mall with some specialty stores. It is an OK place to spend a couple hours if you feel like shopping. There was a Godzilla show in the evening we went. A video was projected to the wall of the building with music fountains below shooting water to match the story. Quite interesting for a mall show.
