The underground world here is also a popular shopping area with eye - catching appeal. To give a general instruction, here are major commercial zones and shopping centers as a guide to tourists. International brands abound at this super-size mall. This 12-story mega mall is home to a host of Western and international brands including H&M, Toys R’ Us and Uniqlo.  Because of its size, the mall isn't too crowded, even at high-volume shopping times, but we can't help feeling the vast space hasn't been used to its best ability, with wide, shop-less corridors and odd hidden mini-levels that connect to the main floors. Dining options range from American fast food to seafood at the upscale Chu Xuan Tang, as well as a variety of Chinese, Japanese and Korean restaurants. The basement (B2) level is also home to a huge bakery focused food court, Bakeria, which includes Spanish churros brand San Gines, and Time Out favourite healthy salad and sides canteen Sproutworks. For groceries, Lotus supermarket in the basement offers a large variety of fresh and imported goods. although at slightly higher prices than local stores. Don’t feel like shopping?
