Top ways to experience Centro Vasco da Gama and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Parque das Nações
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and structures that once were the home of all the Expo's attractions and exhibits are still culturally and artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the amazing Lisbon Oceanarium (one of the most spectacular things you'll ever see in the city) will take your breath away: its respect and will to preserve natural wildlife is uncanny. Easily accessible by metro, bus or taxi from the city center, Parque das Nações is highly recommended for anyone who'll spend more than 3 days in the Portuguese capital.

    Dancing at the Mall
    I went to the mall because I was invited to go dancing. Yes at the mall. On the third floor by the food court, there are glass doors leading out to the patio, where It was amazing to watch the wonderful dancers and participate. Thursdays and Fridays is music and dancing. A fun thing to do at this mall. There is a beautiful large artwork located near the front of the mall

    Modern smallish mall
    I came to see the Oriental Station to which the shopping mall is connected to presenting the usual array of international and local brands. It is light and airy in design with a large food court on top floor. The whole recently built neighborhood is quite far away from city center.

    Busy Shopping Mall
    I did not expect to see such large crowds as shopping malls like this are no longer busy in the US. But on a Sunday there were lots of people shopping, buying, and especially eating. Huge grocery store on the lower level. I bought some clothes. Some nice casual eating places with tables outside. Across the street from the big Oriente train station.

    A modern Mall in a modern part of the city.
    This place is huge. I went there a lot of times, and got frequently mixed up about which exit would lead me to the metro. I visited C&A and I was disappointed by the new jeans, but bought very good sets of socks; great quality in very good price. There is a big supermarket, the Continente, where I remembered the “pasteis de nata” were sold in dozens. Unfortunately there weren't any not on the first day, not on the last, which made a bad impression as this is their national delicacy. It was a big surprise to see endless queues, yet typical for this kind of store, where you can find everything. Mac Donald's is situated next to the many restaurants, and that floor is so big that even when it is crowded there is always a place to sit. There are many visitors in this mall because apart from the direct connection to the metro and the railway, it houses electronic games for youngsters, not to forget the proximity to the airport. There is a big selection of stores, more or less the same you can find in big malls in every country. The toilets are clean, the place is very well looked after, and I would rate it a positive experience.

Lots of local and international shops in the bay area. Food court with a large selection of cuisines, and outside patio.
Across the road is the metro station and there are more shops, cafes and restos there.

Out of town shopping with a great selection of high street brands. It’s a taxi ride from Lisbon or a 30min walk along the coast.

This is a nice shopping mall that is conveniently located next to the train and metro station. The west end has a very good view of the Oriente train station and the east end has a very good view of Parque das Nacoes.
