This place is suited for the young and hip since there's nothing much you can do here but appreciate the huge blue shipping containers and take pictures. The shops inside are quite expensive. If you feel like having a light snack, you can also head...More

This place is very hip, and majority of the people that I saw were the younger crowds. It's basically a bunch of containers put together to make a mall. Very interesting concept to say the least. It's the first I've seen and was excited to...More
