“Rich place in a poor place”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Great place if you like shopping at the richie rich shops, but it's pretty sad once you've been to visit the poorer parts of the city. It would be easier to handle if it wasn't so garish and ostentatious. The park is one of the nicer green spaces in the city though.

“Typical Mall”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Huge mall with lots of walking. Shops galore, although didn't find anything to buy. Tons of food places to eat at. They had Zumba in the open food court where everyone could follow along for free, was fun to watch. Very easy to get lost in though.
