The mall is rather tired and old but boasts a decent food court with good food choices and a Chinese supermarket. You can find some factory outlets but the more exciting place is paddy,s market below if you are hunting for cheap souvenirs

The market is eight above Paddy's. It has a number of different varities of products with good quality and reasonable price. If you want you can always go to Paddy's on the bottom floor for cheaper products.
