  • Had no idea and was several decades ago. Village one whole theme just the vast range has a lot of stores. Everyone from adults to children, and held classes can make in their own crafts and accommodation. Also dining there will look forward to a walk in the Park would be scattered here, there are no shops. It is recommended not to break the shop facilities in all the sleepover.

  • I went with my daughter! And places including parking, set navigation was far away, but the fixed stop near the shops of their own! There was because it was near the evening, closes shop. Go a little earlier and leisurely stroll around! She pressed, make bracelets using their favorite stone was satisfied!
