A wide range of shops. Most of them keep similar type of clothing. With a little bit of street savy one can pick up bargains. A few exclusive wear shops available as well.

The Oriental Plaza has been there for as long as I have been alive. A mecca of sights and smells and of course great bargains on anything from fabrics to pots to foods. And the fresh spices are just wonderful!

You can be guaranteed to find a selection of shops at oriental plaza, be it wedding accesories or curtains. Its a sort of mixed bag kinda place.
