Tips for you
The mall is beautiful and clean, don't get me wrong, but the majority of the stores are high end brands that you can find in most high end malls. It reminded me a lot of the shopping malls in Las Vegas. However, we did have dinner at a restaurant in the basement level. I believe the restaurant was called gin8ing. It was quite good. With a little work, I got the server to understand that I did not eat meat, and was able to order a delicious mushroom dish. There is an ice skating rink that I am hoping to visit during our stay. There is also a movie theater. I think it would be neat to go watch a movie there even though I don't speak or understand a lick of Chinese beyond hello and thank you. There is also a super market where we were able to get a few forgotten necessities. The only drawback was they didn't seem to understand when i asked for bandages (using Google translate on my phone). I'm certain they must carry band-aids. I'm just asking for them all wrong!
Upscale Mall with High End stores from upscale brands. Prices are very high, a lot more than what you would pay in the U.S. or EU. not many food options either.
