A very nice place to walk around in which you can witness the past history blending in with the current present. In which how each finds a balance yet preserving the traditional culture.

This was a unique spot to walk around and enjoy. There was art, restaurants underground, and shopping. I really loved the beautiful white glowing flowers at night.
