Tips for you
I felt like this mall was very out of place, and aimed for tourists. If you are from the united states I really don't feel like it's necessary to come to this mall, it's basically a very poor version of a typical mall in the states, with over priced items. (or cold stone at least...) I would recommend just shopping OUTSIDE of the mall around the area at the local vendors for street stuff if you want to experience to local culture of Bali.
