Mall

Located behind the department there is a big mall, where you can find a movie theater, fast food restaurants, clothes stores, ATMs, Starbucks, and a casino. PLEASE see the 2nd picture, you can enter the mall through a hallway behind the plaza, it does not look like an entrance, in fact, there is just a grey door without glass. It was supposed to be an entry for the plaza workers, but everyone can enter through that door. Just pull it and walk !
