We did a quick run through here when we were down at the waterfront. There were a lot of crafts and mementos to choose from. Interesting to see some unique items. We didn't purchase anything, as we were pretty much just killing time, but would...More

It's located pretty much next door to the Aquarium. Some really good places to buy some better quality and different souvenirs without the excessive price tags. While they do have the cheaper normal stuff, they have some really top shelf stuff, I haven't seen this...More

Rather buy clothes and gifts here than at the mainstream shops in the bigger mall. Enjoy the local buskers and a juice. The dried fruit stall at the entrance has the best mango! Lovely vibe and cool stuffs.
