Great shopping and tourist attraction. Went for fabric and ended with more than just that. At the Plaza the term shop till you drop really does come into effect.

We visited the Oriental Plaza in late February. If you’re looking for budget home decor, fabric and fashion this could be the place for you. As Australian visitors we were amazed at the large number of businesses offering curtain and dress/ tailor making at budget...More
