It was a average mall for me. Didn't see anything special. Good for the guest staying at the hotel. Wide rage of restaurants are available. Parking is very confusing. We visited 3 time and all 3 times one side of entrance from parking was close.

Very interesting market, different wood design, in front you can find a souk as well with so many beautiful things, pashminas, tunics, rugs, souvenirs... I really recomend this place, prices are much cheaper comparing to Dubai. Worth it!
