It's a nice SHOP but by no means it's a tourist attraction... If every single store is listed here, I would personally believe that TripAdvisor's results are very biased.More

Hey Sina, thanks for the review. We are an artists run gallery, everyone involved is explicitly local, hence the name Ten Thousand Paces, the distance from the gallery most of us live and work. We made a decision to be in a busy shopping arcade,...More
