  • Full of lots of merchandise. A great place for last minute shops. Dont let the tailors and the electronic vendors drag you inside. Go in for what you came for, not what they sell you. Lots of shady sales, selling fake jewelry as real, etc. When they see Westerners, they smell money. Good fun and great deals to be had if you haggle a little. Just be careful.
  • Huge, many floors and well stocked shopping center. Has everything you can think of from clothing, electronics, furniture, banks, food, etc. Exercise greatest care with electronics because items look authentic but are fake. If possible, bring a knowledgeable friend with you to verify authenticity. Electronics are not recommended for quick travelers who cannot return an item. Most vendors refuse to refund an item but will upgrade to an alternative, which likely is also fake. Worth a visit just to see the place.
