  • Simply a stunning interior with a superb, enormous chandelier in the middle of the building. There are various designer shops plus a charity shop for elephants oddly enough.  more »

  • Simply romantic only the building itself just takes you back in time.... It gives you a certain Parisian vibe... sigh if only we could actually gonna in time, before all the sneakers, butt showing jeans hanging half way on the floor, skinny jeans... can we go back 2 the 20's - 60's era lol , where everyone was simply dressed up neatly all the time.
  • The architecture of this place is where the "interesting" factor of the mall ends. Expect plenty of high-end shops and a small number of normal range ones but absolutely nothing exciting, nor cafes or resting spots of any kind. Have had bad experience with the customer service here numerously. All in all quite stale and for a historic building such as this, one one would expect higher standards.
  • An excellent example of adaptive reuse- from a post office to a shopping mall. The exterior is magnificent and what you would call IG-worthy. Inside, well, it's a mall.
  • Nice palace!! It's better when the gardeners have had time to plant and make it look amazing.
  • Not a big mall but has trendy stores. Most shops had spring promotion. A fee is payable for visiting the restrooms.
